    I feel that this can only be a good thing. Too many people are getting into trouble with money and although I am not completely against borrowing some money, I think that people just do not worry about repayments and the costs of mortgages and loans any more. For example, I wonder how many people realise that they pay for their house about 3 times over if they have a mortgage for 25 years.

    The low number of mortgage
    approvals in previous months predicted lower gross lending in August and, together with remortgaging, a much weaker net lending figure than of late resulted. Widespread expectations that house prices will continue to fall markedly for some considerable time to come is also significantly limiting housing market activity, as is heightened concern over the economic outlook and job prospects.
