A worker walks past a picture of the London skyline outside the sales office of a property development in central LondonBy William Schomberg and Tess Little LONDON (Reuters) - British mortgage approvals rose for the first time in five months in June, suggesting lenders were getting back into their stride after the introduction of more stringent tests for borrowers earlier this year. The Bank of England, which is keeping a close eye on Britain's fast-recovering housing market, said mortgage approvals jumped 8 percent from May to 67,196 last month. "The appreciable rise in mortgage approvals fuels uncertainty as to whether the recent loss of momentum in housing market activity is likely to be lasting or just a temporary development," said Howard Archer at IHS Global Insight. As well as the introduction in April of tougher checks on whether borrowers can afford their mortgages, the BoE last month announced measures to prevent a build-up of risky home loans.
