The Real Estate Institute called for the bank to take another look at the loan-to-value ratio limits, after a 30 percent slowdown in the Auckland housing market in July.

The Reserve Bank first introduced the restrictions in 2013, in an attempt to take the heat out of the housing market.

It required most people wanting to take out a mortgage to have at least a 20 percent deposit.
