Moneyfacts expert Rachel Springall comments: “This week’s mortgage changes have been dominated by rate rises. With a number of prominent lenders changing their ranges, we have seen some rates rise by up to 0.70%.

rate re-pricing is widespread, with some of the biggest banking brands making notable changes to selected rates. first direct increased selected rates by up to 0.55%, as did Lloyds Bank by up to 0.43%, NatWest also increased by up to 0.43%, followed by TSB of up 0.30%, HSBC up to 0.25% and finally Halifax by up to 0.19%.

“The banks were not the only lenders to increase rates this week, with Progressive Building Society increasing selected rates by up to 1.26%, Scottish Building Society increased rates by up to 0.70%, and West Brom Building Society increased rates by up to 0.55% – it’s clear to see from these dominating increases that the market pricing is moving in one direction, up.

“T. were however a few deals withdrawn from the market entirely, perhaps in order to condense their range, but also some brand new deals launched which are competitively priced, including a new five-year fixed rate deal from Digital Mortgages by Atom Bank for borrowers with a 5% deposit priced at 2.79%.”
