Atkinson McLeod - July 2013 Newsletter

The Financial Conduct Authority is to scrutinise the subject of mortgage contracts in the wake of the furore over the Bank of Ireland’s decision to hike its tracker mortgage rate for 13,500 borrowers. In our first article this month, we take a look in more detail.

Our second article this month reviews some of the most prominent facts from the latest English Housing Survey that highlights the continuing trend of diminishing home ownership levels resulting from the growth of the private rented sector.

Finally, we are delighted to see that the Land Registry is making its historical Price Paid Data records, going back to 1995, available for free. The wealth of information is staggering. In our third article we provide links to help you benefit from this.

As ever, if you’ve got any questions or feedback, please call us or drop us a line. Alternatively, just drop into your local branch of Atkinson McLeod.

Best regards,

Giles Atkinson and Dan McLeod
