Base Rate Increase

The Bank of England has raised the base rate eight times since December 2021 in an effort to combat rising inflation. This has had a knock-on effect on mortgage rates, which have also been rising. As a result, homeowners are now facing higher monthly payments. A lot of new house buyers opt for fixed rate mortgages so that they know what their monthly mortgage repayments will be every month.

What will happen to the base rate in 2023? 

It is likely that the base rate will continue to rise in 2023, which will mean that mortgage rates will continue to increase. Some are concerned this could further impact the property market. However, it is also possible that the base rate will plateau or even fall in the future. This would depend on a number of factors, including the level of inflation.

What will happen to the base rate late 2022? 

As of June 2022 The Bank of England have announced another 0.25% rate increase moving Base Rate to 1.25%
