The Full 100 Mortgage Stress Listing

To complete our series on mortgage stress, based on our household surveys, here is the complete list of the top 100 most stressed suburbs, and their relative position on the default list, as at December 2016.

Victoria has the highest number of suburbs in the listing.

As we discussed yesterday, this is based on the absolute number of households in the suburb who are in difficulty.  You can also watch our video blog where we discuss the research.

Running our risk models, we expect the banks to be reporting higher mortgage defaults next year, with a lift in write-offs from around 2 basis points, to 4 basis points. However, this is still at a low, and manageable level given the capital buffers they hold. We do expect provisions though to rise.
