Abstract

This article summarises the main results from the latest survey carried out for the Bank by NMG Research in late September about the state of household finances. There was a slight increase in financial pressure among renters, continuing a recent trend. Mortgagors appeared not to have experienced any increased difficulty despite the increase in policy rates over the year. Partly, this reflects the widespread use of fixed-rate mortgage products. Credit conditions appeared to have tightened a little for renters, but loosened for mortgagors over the year to September.
