The Bank of England has dropped the base rate to a historical low of 0.25%. We have already received many emails from mortgage lenders informing us that they are now reviewing their products.
In response to this fall, we anticipate seeing lenders reduce certain rates. We are able to monitor this directly without delay and keep up-to-date with the latest rates available.
Some UK lenders, including Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds, and TSB, are offering repayment holidays on mortgages and loans. This is to ensure that customers who are financially affected by the coronavirus outbreak (for example, those who lose pay because they are unable to work) will not fall into financial difficulty.
If you are financially affected by COVID-19, or are unsure if you’re eligible for a repayment holiday, speak with your lender right away.
We expect lenders to act responsibly during this crisis and to continue offering historically-low, competitive mortgages.
We expect that this will have a positive effect on new mortgage rates. This is good news for buyers, people wanting to remortgage, and those on base-rate tracker mortgages.
