The Bank of England recently increased their base rate – what could this mean for your customers?
With the recent announcement of the rise in the Bank of England base rate, many brokers may find that customers are worried about potential increases in their mortgage payments and how this could affect their monthly outgoings. If your customers do find an increase in their monthly payments begins to cause them difficulties with other financial commitments, a secured loan could be a perfect solution.
A second charge could be a fantastic solution for a customer who has fixed their mortgage rate due to the recent rise, and so doesn’t want to remortgage because of this. As secured loans came under the scrutiny of MCD, the perception of secured loans changed and it became apparent they were a viable alternative to a remortgage. Norton Broker Services have secured loan rates starting from 3.73% for customers looking to secure against their home; plus, with the increasing competition in the second charge market, it’s only working in the customers’ favour in terms of ERCs, LTV and specialist criteria.
