L&C Mortgage Ratewatch

Mortgage rates have been at an unprecedented low in recent months, perhaps unsurprising given the fact that the Bank of England Base Rate has never been lower. But higher inflation is now leading to speculation that there may be a need for that to change. The expectation of a Bank of England Base Rate rise coming sooner than previously anticipated is feeding into the cost of funding for lenders. That is now being reflected in fixed rates which are already beginning to increase and some of the very lowest rates are being nudged up. To help customers keep track of lender moves, L&C’s Ratewatch will keep you posted on the movers in the market.
