I have completed reading an article stating that millions of mortgage customers could face “shock” of a potential rate rise by the end of the month. Read here https://www.thesun.co.uk/money/5505102/millions-of-homeowners-could-face-shock-mortgage-bill-rise-this-month-heres-how-to-avoid-it/ When you look at the real monthly figures, too me it does not look that bad.

I just finished an article stating that 2-year fixed rate mortgage deals are DANGEROUS because of POSSIBLE stagnant house prices and POSSIBLE high interest rates. Read here if you are interested. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/personal-banking/mortgages/mortgage-warning-two-year-deals-dangerous-house-prices-weaken/ The head of the Bank of England said that there might be an increase in the interest rate if he does not see a change in the inflation rate.

I finished listening to a short video were Mark Carney (Bank of England) stated. “If the economy continues on this tract it may be appropriate to raise interest rates” This could happen as early as November. The article went on to say that there is a large increase in the amount of consumer borrowing in the following categories 1) Car financing 2) Credit cards 3) Personnel loans Here is the link if you want to
Two factors are coming together to make right now a crucial moment for homeowners to review their mortgage. Firstly, extreme competition between lenders mean rates are keener than ever. Secondly, the Bank of England’s leading Bank Rate is expected to rise as early as November. This would cause mortgage rates to rise in turn, and so the window to secure a best-ever deal will close.
