UK Commercial Property Debt Falls

By - Tuesday 24 May 2011

The level of debt secured against UK commercial property has fallen from in excess of GBP 300 billion to about GBP 293 billion in 2010. The decline offers investors and the wider industry a glimmer of hope that the market is rebuilding in the wake of the crisis.

Following the damage inflicted from excessive lending during the property boom, lenders have begun to rebuild their balance sheets, the research from De Montford University suggests.

Some 67 per cent of lenders reported a decline in the value of their outstanding loan books in 2010. Respondents added that a total of GBP 45.9 billion of loans are due for repayment in 2011 - down from GBP 55 billion last year.

Report author Bill Maxted said: "The rate of increase in impaired loans appears to be slowing and new loan originations are cautious in nature and based on conservative terms. These actions could be regarded as important first stepping stones on the path to recovery."

However, while this report can be regarded as a step in the right direction, the study made it clear that conditions for both lenders and the property industry remained extremely challenging.
