Better Get Your Fixed Rate Mortgage Now

Homeowners and buyers thinking about opting for a fixed rate mortgage should get in quickly; lenders are starting to withdraw cheap deals from the market.

According to mortgage brokers Savills Private Finance, in the past 10 days Portman Building Society has raised its five-year fix from 4.45 to 4.59 per cent, Northern Rock placed its fixed-rate range on withdrawal notice (meaning it can pull them at short notice) and Abbey withdrew its fixed rate mortgage deals and replaced them at rates of 0.1-0.15 per cent higher. Alliance & Leicester also put its two-year fix on withdrawal notice, while Newcastle withdrew its two-year 4.22 per cent fixed deal.
