The number of new £1 million-plus mortgages agreed is at the highest rate since records began.

Latest figures show there were 820 seven-figure mortgages approved in the three months to September. The average loan size was £1.6 million, and they totalled £1.37 billion.

Aaron Strutt, product director at Trinity Financial, says: “More of the lenders have specialist underwriting teams to get large mortgage loans agreed quickly and efficiently. It is quite incredible how cheap the rates are and how many of them can be taken on interest-only.”

The number of £1 million-plus loans was also up 47% on the previous quarter when 559 mortgages were taken out totalling £927 million.

Data from the Financial Conduct Authority published in The Evening Standard, show the highest number of mortgages were agreed since records began in 2014 when there were 363 £1 million-plus transactions.

The rise in the number of larger loans agreed has been linked with homebuyers moving to commuter zones in areas like Kent, Surrey and the Home Counties.
