Archive: The Bank of England may raise interest rates in 2017

According to one of the UK’s leading fund managers, Richard Buxton, the Bank of England may be forced to raise interest rates in 2017. The markets currently forecast that there is a high probability that the Federal Reserve will increase interest rates in the US. And, Richard Buxton claims that the Bank of England will have to react by raising interest rates here in the UK.

This was reported on the Mortgage Solutions website in December 2016*.

What this means for home buyers and home owners

Adam Nanson from Your Mortgage Expert comments:

“In the UK, we have been enjoying low interest rates for some time. This has meant that home owners have been saving money on the amount they pay for their mortgages if they have snapped up one of the low deals available.

“However, if the Bank of England does put up interest rates, then this could be set to change. And, we could see mortgage rates start to go up for the first time in long time.”

How Your Mortgage Expert can help

Adam Nanson continues:

“There’s no need for people to panic as even Richard Buxton admits that, if the interest rates do go up, it won’t be by much*. Having said that, if people do want to take advantage of the current low interest rates and secure a mortgage or switch lenders to get a new rate, it could be a savvy decision to do it now rather than waiting.
