Norway closer to easing mortgage lending

Norway leads in economic growth — but Sweden is set to catch up next year
Financial watchdog warns bank over liquidity risk
Sweden unexpectedly returns to deflation

Bloomberg said Norway is moving closer to easing mortgage lending standards as the nation’s deflating property market prompts concern among lawmakers that existing regulations are too tight.

Real estate prices, which have doubled over the past decade and touched a record high this year, are now dropping faster than the central bank had predicted. The Conservative-led government, which won power in September, says it’s now looking into raising the amount banks can lend to borrowers to 90 percent of a property’s value, from 85 percent previously, in an effort to support first-time buyers. 

“We’re asking for a more flexible rule. A 10 percent down-payment should be enough if banks take into account individuals and their own ability to pay their debts", Hans Olav Syversen, the head of the parliamentary finance committee in Oslo told the Bloomberg news bureau.

Norway, like Sweden, has imposed core capital requirements on its banks that exceed those set by European and international regulators.
