With interest rates on the rise it's an ideal time to review your current mortgage rate

The last couple of months have seen the Bank of England raise interest rates twice to 0.5%. The expectation when they meet again in a few weeks is that they will increase them again.

Although there was not an immediate change to mortgage rates, lenders are now starting or plan to change their product suite with a number getting the wheels in motion already.

There is no better time than now to review your rate. If you are on a variable rate, you will have noticed that your monthly payments have increased and if rates increase again in a few weeks, then so will your payments.

If you are on a fixed rate that is due to expire in the next 6 months, you can start the process of looking at a new deal now and get something locked in for the day after your current rate expires.

At Simpson & Marwick we have our own dedicated in-house mortgage adviser that can review your mortgage and help protect you against any rate increases. The service we offer is free so won’t cost you a penny for the advice or submitting of an application. Most brokers in the market charge anything between 0.3 – 1% of the mortgage amount.
