Base rate remains at 0.5%


On 14th July 2016 the Bank of England confirmed that base rate will remain at 0.5%. This means it’s still a great time to review your current mortgage – customers could still secure a cheaper mortgage.

We have already seen lenders such as HSBC and Coventry Building Society drop some of their fixed rates.

David Blake at Which? Mortgage Advisers said:

“The Bank of England has kept the Base Rate at 0.5%, This is still good news for existing and potential mortgage borrowers.

For those who already have a mortgage I would urge you to review the rate of interest you are paying, even if you have an early repayment charge as it could very well make financial sense to remortgage.”
