HSBC UK head of buying a home Michelle Andrews said: “While the purchase of properties has understandably slowed, time marches on for those who are on a fixed-rate deal.
“Many homeowners will have taken out their mortgage or remortgaged in the spring and their deal is now up for renewal, or they risk moving onto a higher standard variable rate mortgage.”
Andrews added that borrowers should take a close look at how the additional cost of moving onto a standard variable rate could impact their finances.
