As Bank rates rise again, is it time to re-mortgage?

Tuesday 21 June, 2022

The Bank of England increased interest rates again last week in response to inflationary fears, and we are now seeing mortgage lenders increase their standard variable rates too.  

It is never too late to review your mortgage. We recommend you call our Thomas Oliver mortgage broking team on 01707 872000 to make sure you have the best mortgage rate and most suitable mortgage product for your circumstances.  

Please note that these mortgage rates below are only available for a certain length of time, but we can check the market and provide you with the best available rate when you call us.

Richard Rushworth - Mortgage Broker & Protection Adviser in Brentwood & Hertford said:

‘We work with first time buyers, home movers and commercial investors purchasing buy to let investments. We also offer re-mortgages to clients who are on variable rates or who have fixed rate mortgage deals that are due to come to an end soon. Many clients fixed their mortgages during the pandemic, and these are now coming up for renewal, but clients are finding rates are much higher than they are used to paying as we have seen mortgage rates increase from their lows last year. We would urge anyone whose mortgage is coming up for renewal in the next six months to call us as soon as possible so we can find them the best mortgage deal.  Remember many mortgage deals often last up to six months so you can organise it now ready for when you need it.’
