LONDON, July 18 (Reuters) - Lenders in Britain said demand
for mortgages rose significantly in the second quarter and is
expected to hold steady in the third quarter, a Bank of England
survey showed, adding to other signs that a housing market
slowdown might be bottoming out.

The BoE survey published on Thursday also showed demand for
unsecured lending fell in the second quarter, pushed down by
credit card lending. Credit card lending was expected to pick up
in the third quarter, it showed.
