Almost half plan to remortgage following rate rise




Today, the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee will meet for the first time this year to decide if the base rate should increase, but research from TSB shows that many British homeowners are unprepared for a rate rise in 2016.


Its report shows that nearly three quarters (72%) of homeowners are likely to see their mortgage payments increase if the base rate rises, with one in five (20%) having “no idea” how even a small change could have an impact on their monthly mortgage repayments. More than half of the home-owning population (56%) say they are already struggling with household bills.


Reacting to a base rate increase, 43% would try to switch to a cheaper loan or mortgage, 33% would prioritise debt repayments and pay the most important ones first, while 14% would seek help from debt advice organisations.


Ian Ramsden, Director of Mortgages at TSB, said:

Here's what our clients say...

“Mortgage Tree showed me how to improve my credit rating as I had a few issues with my credit previously. As a result of their excellent advice I have now secured a mortgage at a great interest rate. They also helped me sort out life & critical illness cover which offers great protection for myself and my family. Mortgage Tree offers a fantastic service and I recommend them wholeheartedly.”
