Two-year fixed mortgage rates jump to their highest level since 2016

Author: Greg May

Reports from Money Facts have shown that this month, the average two-year fixed mortgage deal has climbed to 2.41% - the highest rate since September 2016!

Since the Bank Rate increased to 0.5% in November, lenders’ rates have been gradually increasing in preparation for another increase. The Bank of England has recently revealed that the next rise could be on the cards as early as May this year!

Greg May, Romans’ Financial Services Director explains, “Over the last six months, rates have increased from a typical 2.17% up to 2.41%, anyone who isn’t already on a fixed deal may want to review their options to avoid inflated repayments should Bank Rate increase further.”

“Homeowners sitting on a variable rate or tracker product may be hit the hardest if the Bank of England increase interest rates. Anyone who is on a variable or tracker rate product should speak to a mortgage advisor to ensure they are on the right rate for their circumstances.”

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

You may have to pay an early repayment charge to your existing lender if you remortgage.

There will be a fee for mortgage advice.  The actual amount you pay will depend upon your circumstances.  The fee is up to 1%, but a typical fee is 0.3% of the amount borrowed.
