Protecting yourself against any further potential increases in interest rates...

Securing your mortgage now could mean that you benefit from lower interest rates, helping to reduce the cost of your monthly payments. If interest rates continue to rise, locking in a secure rate now could mean significant savings for you and your family on monthly payments.

At this time, when there is uncertainty about future economic conditions, it’s important to take advantage of the current market and protect yourself against any further potential increases in interest rates.

If you’re coming to the end of your current fixed rate mortgage, now is the time to start looking into fixing a new deal in advance. If interest rise during this period, then you will have already secured your rate and won’t need to worry about any impending further rate hikes.

Most mortgage offers are valid for six months, so it is important to make sure you are aware of the time frame when considering switching to a new deal. In addition, it’s important to take into account any early repayment charges (ERC) when switching to a new deal as this could have an effect on your budget.

If you don’t do anything then your mortgage will go onto your lender’s Standard Variable Rate (SVR). This means your mortgage payments could go up or down, but in the current economic climate they are more likely to increase.
