How will the 'Mortgage Price War' affect you?

John French from Mortgage Advice Bureau at Farrell Heyworth estate Agents comments on how the current battle amongst lenders and their rates could help borrower’s chances of getting a cheaper mortgage.


It is no secret that the UK is amongst its very own mortgage ‘price war’. Lenders are breaking records on a weekly basis as banks continue to slash mortgage rates after the Bank of England announced that interest rates will continue to stay lower for longer.
 
But how is the ongoing battle between lenders beneficial to you?
 
The postponement of an increase in the bank rate is a complete change of direction by the Bank, with lenders increasing their rates earlier in the year in preparation for such a rise that was expected to arrive early next year.However, real wages are not rising in the UK, and the Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) has refused to increase rates until they begin to do so.

Because of this, swap rates declined last week, permitting banks to offer extremely cheap loans – with one lender offering a record low 0.99 per cent – albeit with a £1,999 fee.
What are swap rates and why are they causing low interest rates? Interest swap rates are how financial bodies protect themselves against changes in the LIBOR rate (the average interest rate used by the UK’s leading banks).
 
For example, if a company sits on floating rate payments but believes that the LIBOR rate is likely to rise, it can protect itself by switching to fixed-rate payments. The swap rate is the cost of this switch and directly affects the interest rates that that lender offers customers.
So what’s next?
 
Mortgage rates under 2 per cent will soon become the standard in the months leading up to Christmas and will lead to a significant increase to mortgage availability.
The changes inflicted on the market by the Mortgage Market Review (MMR) have relaxed and those who struggled to obtain a loan earlier this year will now stand a better chance, with lenders now looking at where they have been most scrutinous over the past few months.
 
With lenders prices constantly changing, it is imperative that you seek the advice of a professional mortgage adviser who can talk you through what is right for your personal circumstances.
