Mortgage lenders are starting to increase rates on deals and borrowers will see that many sub-1% deals have disappeared as result. Saying this, there are still some highly competitive rates available and, although this week’s expected Bank of England base rate rise never materialised, there is still the possibility that base rate will increase before the end of this year. This means that borrowers on a tracker mortgage or on a standard variable rate (SVR) may want to consider locking into a fixed rate deal.
Although we’ve highlighted the lowest rates across our mortgage charts, borrowers should always keep in mind that the lowest rate may not be the best, or most cost effective, deal for them. Instead, it is important to consider factors such as product fees and incentives when comparing mortgage deals, as these can have a significant impact on the cost of the mortgage. Consumers unsure of which deal is right for them should consider speaking to a mortgage broker, who will be able to provide advice on the best deal for their circumstances.
