Abstract: This note provides an overview of residential mortgage lending in Ireland in H1 2018. In total, 17,415 loans are covered with a value of e3.75 billion. The majority (97 per cent) of lending in-scope of the mortgage measures was for primary dwelling (PDH) loans. For firsttime buyers (FTBs), the average loan-to-value (LTV) and loan-to-income (LTI) were 79.6 per cent and 3.1 times gross income, respectively. Regarding the LTV limit, 16 per cent of the total value of second and subsequent buyers (SSB) lending in H1 2018 exceeded the 80 per cent LTV limit. Regarding the LTI limit, 23 per cent of the aggregate value of FTB lending exceeded the LTI limit, with 9 per cent of the value of SSB lending originated with an LTI above 3.5. On average, borrowers with an LTI allowance had larger loan sizes and loan terms, were more likely to be based in Dublin and be a single applicant compared to those borrowers without an LTI allowance. SSBs with an LTV allowance had larger loan sizes and incomes and were younger than those without an LTV allowance. These trends were similar to those observed in H1 2017.
