Millions Facing Higher Payments: What’s next for you and your mortgage?

Approximately 1.6 million fixed-rate mortgage deals are set to expire later this year, and 5 million homeowners are likely to see payment increases between now and 2026. Is a new fixed rate right for you?


Whilst the industry expects a reduction in fixed rates, the timeline may be somewhat longer than expected, and this week we could see sub-four per cent rates briefly disappear. This could be a good opportunity for many who have been hesitant, to now act quickly.


Why Fixed Rates Matter

Fixed-rate mortgages lock in your interest rate for a set period, usually 2, 5, or 10 years. This means you know exactly what your monthly payments will be, making budgeting and financial planning easier. With unstable interest rates, securing a new fixed rate could provide many with the continued stability they’re looking for, to give them peace of mind that their mortgage repayments will continue to be affordable.


Fixed-rate deals offer valuable protection against potential interest rate hikes. By securing a locked-in rate, you can:


  • Predict your monthly payments: Consistent monthly payments make budgeting easier and ensure you're not caught off guard by unexpected increases.


  • Protect your finances: Rising interest rates can significantly impact your monthly outgoings. A fixed-rate deal shields you from this risk, safeguarding your financial stability.


  • Gain peace of mind: Knowing your exact monthly mortgage payment removes stress and allows you to focus on enjoying your home and achieving your financial goals.
