BoE freezes base rate in the British sunshine

BoE freezes base rate in the British sunshine

 



Video transcript

The Bank of England`s base rate has remained at 0.5 per cent; a level it`s maintained since March 2009.

The base rate decision means that people with variable rate mortgages won`t have to worry about paying extra interest on their home loan for now, while people looking for new deals won`t see their options suddenly become more expensive across the board just yet.

Generally, the housing market has been growing in recent months, despite the best efforts of the recently implemented mortgage market review (MMR).

In theory, MMR is likely to make criteria more stringent to purchase a property, but figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) suggest that sales haven`t dried up very much at the moment.

Time of course will ultimately tell if this is to continue.

The CML notes that loans to first-time buyers rose by nine per cent month-on-month in May and 19 per cent annually, while the monthly figure for people who are moving home was eight per cent.

The CML`s Paul Smee suggests that thus far, the impact of MMR "appears subtle, rather than dramatic".

However, if prices continue to rise, more and more people may find that they struggle to afford their dream home as MMR changes by lenders may suggest to lenders that they won`t be able to afford to pay it back and thus will not approve the mortgage.
