    Hi All,

    Hope you are doing well.

    Just wondering if i can get your views on how lending may be further impacted after the implementation of Comprehensive Credit Reporting (CCR) in Jul 2019.

    CCR for credit cards was implemented in Jul 2018 and we saw a sharp drop borrowing capacity. CCR for home loans, personal loans etc. will be implemented in Jul 2019.

    Anyone thinks there is will another similar drop in prices similar to last year?

    Cheers

    it wont do that much at this stage

    Objectively, most borrowers are on the straight and narrow.

    I my view, the lowering of borrow cap had more to with ..........

    ASIC pushing for less use of HEMS vs actual expenses for household outgoings, and a hangover from APG 223 where the treatment of existing lending was "standardised"

    what are other factors?
    i understand speculation is mostly out of market. majority of transactions is first home owners or people up sizing or downsizing.

    A backlog of IO -> P&I conversions. Many people just can't afford their loans that were written in the good old days.

    I for one am worried for my financial privacy. Just look at the equifax data breach in the US - nightmare.

    I'm having a few clients getting pinged for non disclosure of credit cards some who have been omitting some of their cards from applications for years it turns out!! I'm sure this will be fairly common. When the credit files start showing balances etc it could get more negative again for credit growth. The late payment issue isn't too bad as it has to be quite late to be reported.

    Another nail in the coffin of easy credit though.

    not just credit cards. It was happening on home loans as well - omitting they have another loan/loans with other fin institutions.
    given decline in house prices and negative growth forecast wonder how many people will be able to take up more loans or willing to invest.
