Households continue to take on large mortgages


Please complete the required fields.

Household debt is continuing to rise. The number of new mortgagors with a high level of debt in relation to their income or the value of their home continues to be high. These are the conclusions drawn by Finansinspektionen (FI) from this year’s mortgage survey, which is being presented today. FI also highlights how tenant-owner associations’ debt increases the risks for households.

FI’s survey also shows that new mortgagors are able to make their payments with strong margins. Compared to previous years, more households are able to handle, for example, rising interest rates.

“Household debt is continuing to rise. The stricter amortisation requirement that was introduced a month ago is important to slow this development,” says FI Director General Erik Thedéen, who is presenting the new mortgage survey together with Chief Economist Henrik Braconier at a press conference today.
