About the rate changes.
When we consider the impact of base rate changes we are mindful of both mortgage borrowers and savings members. Whilst the base rate increased by 0.25% there have now been two rate increases in quick succession.
We have been keen to take into consideration the interests of mortgage borrowers, especially at a time when other living costs are rising, and, being conscious of this squeeze on household budgets, have therefore agreed a partial increase.
We’re here to help.
