    Why have mortgage rates risen when the Bank of England base rate was lowered?

    Most of us would assume that when the Bank of England (BoE) cuts its rate of lending, then interest rates for the public will also fall. Yet this has not been the case since Mr. Carney decided to cut the BoE base rate to 0.25% 3 August 2016 following the Brexit vote.

    Banks fund their lending needs from a mix of sources. Savers’ deposits being one, but the money markets form a significant portion of their supply of cash. Since August the fixed rates UK banks are paying to borrow money for two, three and five years has on average more than doubled. This is starting to feed into the pricing of the mortgage products they are now offering.

    In the past week, Skipton raised interest rates on certain of its products by 0.37% and Virgin Money has upped the cost of a range of products by around 10%.

    With Christmas fast approaching our mortgage team are getting busier and busier, as people want to take advantage of rates before they rise higher.
