Standard Variable Mortgage Rate SVR

New research from Barclays* has shown that an estimated 800,000 people are currently on their lenders Standard Variable Rate and could benefit from considering a remortgage.


Many lenders have recently reduced their interest rates on new products, so if your mortgage deal has come to an end, now might be a great time to remortgage. It has recently been speculated by the British Chamber of Commerce that when the base rate does go up, it could rise more quickly than previously envisaged. This means anyone on an SVR could have a sudden increase in their rate and subsequent monthly payments, this also might be at a higher increase than the base rate.

Recent surveys show that property asking prices are now starting to slowly recover which means if you are a home-owner the rise in equity of your home may mean you now fall into a lower Loan to Value (LTV) bracket. This will mean you may now be in a stronger position to get a better rate.

There are some great products available including Switch and Fix products. These products allow you to get the benefit of a low tracker rate with the added security of being able to move to a fixed rate product if rates start to increase, without incurring an early repayment charge.
