If interest rates rise how will this affect my monthly payment?

If the Bank of England Base Rate rises your monthly mortgage payment may increase too. Even if your interest rate is currently fixed, your monthly mortgage payment may still be higher than anticipated at the end of your fixed rate period.

What you need to do
We recommend that you review your finances regularly. You may find it beneficial thinking about your finances now so that you're prepared if interest rates were to rise, as it's important to ensure you can afford your mortgage payments each month.

We're here to help
If you're concerned about how a rate change could affect you or have any queries call us on 0800 121 6263 (Monday to Friday 8am-8pm, Saturday 9am-5pm and Sunday 10am-4pm).
