What the papers say – 22nd April 2009

Budget speculation dominated today’s financial press, with The Times providing a guide on what to look out for, and The Mirror urging Alistair Darling to help out the millions of savers hit by plunging interest rates.

Elsewhere the Daily Mail discussed the large number of homeowners opting for longer term fixed rates in a bid to secure a competitive rate now and give the market time to recover.

The importance of consumer awareness was also a hot topic, with the Mail revealing that many borrowers are now contesting wording on their mortgage contracts in order to reclaim lender exit fees. The Express advised savers to carefully check the small print when considering a savings account, as some easy access accounts limit the number of withdrawals in a year, or reduce interest when funds are taken out.
