Interest rates remain frozen – mortgage industry reaction
The Bank of England has made the decision to keep interest rates frozen at their current level.
Managing Director of One77 Mortgages, Alastair McKee, commented:
“In the current climate of Brexit uncertainty, a freeze in interest rates was one thing that we could bet on.
While wider market conditions remain tough, this further assurance of continued mortgage affordability should help boost confidence in an otherwise beleaguered property market.
However, although today’s news will help stimulate buyer sentiment, fuelling buyer demand is a temporary plaster over the issues surrounding the UK market and we still need to address the wider issue of supply to improve its long-term health.”
