Fiona Hoyle, director of consumer & mortgage finance and inclusion at the Finance & Leasing Association (FLA), said:

“A sustained period of growth by the second charge mortgage market has seen it return to more normal monthly levels of new business. We expect new business volumes to continue to grow despite heightened economic uncertainty over the coming months.”
