End of hiking cycle in sight as mortgage rates look set to fall.

PUBLISHED: 3rd Aug 2023

A number of the country’s biggest lenders look set to continue cutting rates on their fixed mortgages this week providing home- owners with a small glimmer of hope with their mortgages. 

The Bank of England is widely predicted to hike interest rates this week, but there are growing signs that the pressure on policy makers could be easing. 

Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation stood at 7.9% in June, from 8.7% in May and the lowest rate since March 2022, according to official figures from the Office for National statistics (ONS). 

Consequently, rates may not need to climb as high as feared as the bank looks to bring inflation down to its 2% target. 

It comes as both the US’s Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank (ECB) hiked up their interest rates to a two-decade high last week. 

UK Economists think a quarter-point increase would take interest rates to 5.25% this week, with at least one more rate hike to come in the near term. 

With the end of high interest rates in sight, there is some greater optimism around house prices. 

This week some lenders have started to lower their mortgage rates marginally due to favourable market conditions and subsequently the Nationwide reduced their rates on Friday by up to 0.35%
