In a bid to keep the economy stable in the wake of Coronavirus, on Wednesday 11 March 2020 the Bank of England announced an emergency cut in interest rates from 0.75% to 0.25%. While bad news for savers, it's great news for borrowers, as lenders use the Bank of England base rate as a reference point for many mortgages.
What does this mean for your mortgage?
Tracker - If your product is tracking the Bank of England base rate this is great news for you and you will soon see your monthly repayment cost reduce
Variable - Your rate is likely to reduce, but not guaranteed
Fixed Rate - Your monthly mortgage payment is set and will not move until you exit this product
Mortgage providers will be adjusting their product rates in line with this change, so now is a great time to find the perfect mortgage for you. Call us on 01344 753171 or visit your local branch to book an appointment.
