Title: Non-interest credit rationing in the UK mortgage market
Authors: Nellis, Joseph G.

Date: Oct-1982
Abstract: UK data is used to test the hypothesis that non-interest terms adjust to clear the mortgage market when the mortgage rate is sluggish in adjusting to its market equilibrating level. This hypothesis is not supported by the data. An alternative approach is suggested and conjectures that non-interest terms are varied so as to discriminate among borrowers, satisfying some but leaving the market not cleared. Empirical tests offer support for the alternative approach.
