July 2022 Market Update

Market Update

By autumn 2022 inflation is expected to hit around 10%, driven mainly by energy and food price rises. The Bank of England has been increasing interest rates, with the most recent rise in June 2022, when the base rate went up to 1.25% from 1.00%.

Fixed rate mortgage

If you have a fixed rate, then your mortgage repayments won’t change until the end of your deal. If your fixed rate deal is due to finish in the next six months, we can help you lock in a new rate up to six months ahead of your deal ending, and you will avoid paying an early repayment charge. We will let you know when you are seven months away from your deal ending, and help you get a new deal ready.
If you have questions about your mortgage, give our expert advisors a call.

Tracker/Variable mortgage

If you are on a tracker or variable mortgage deal your monthly repayments will increase in line with the base rate. Your lender will write to you and let you know when you will get an increase.
Many lenders will allow homeowners with a variable rate mortgage to change to a fixed rate mortgage at any time without a penalty.
Tracker mortgages can switch but you must be aware that there could be early repayment charges if you switch before the end of your deal.
It’s always worth getting in touch with us for expert advice on what will be the most suitable option for you.


If you can remortgage, it is advisable to act sooner rather than later to secure the most suitable fixed rate deal and avoid future mortgage repayment rises. Please consider if an early repayment charge may apply.
