People taking out new, large mortgages will have to pay back more each month, but a bank economist tells Radio Sweden this will mainly hit those on higher incomes.

Emma Persson is the housing economist at state-owned lender SBAB. She says that poorer people already face barriers to buying homes, due to existing bank rules.

The government says it is households with a monthly income of 70,000 or more who will be affected. The average household income in Sweden is less than 50,000.
