IMLA has an active research programme. It conducts regular 6 month surveys of both lenders and intermediaries and uses the results to generate insights into the market in general, the intermediary market and policy issues. The outputs are normally press released (see News). Here we provide full output from recent surveys.
IMLA also produces regular research reports on issues affecting the UK mortgage market. Recent reports have included The changing face of non-standard mortgage lending and What is the new normal? These reports are available below. In 2013 IMLA also commissioned Professor Steve Wilcox from the Centre for Housing Policy at the University of York to provide an independent assessment of current housing and mortgage markets and how they might evolve. IMLA made inputs into the process and the report Rebalancing the housing and mortgage markets - critical issues was published in June 2013.
