The German Ministry of Finance (Bundesministerium der Finanzen – BMF) published an article on the status of the German implementation of real estate lending statistics. The BMF’s new law (Finanzstabilitätsdatenerhebungsverordnung – FinStabDEV) entered into force on 3 February 2021. The Deutsche Bundesbank has still to issue a general ruling to specify the reporting requirements. After the general ruling is issued, reporting agents have 18 months for implementation. A first data delivery with data for the end of 2022 is expected in February 2023.
