What will the ECB's interest rate hike mean for your mortgage?

HOMEOWNERS WITH TRACKER mortgages are being warned to prepare for a wave of increases to their monthly mortgage repayments after the European Central Bank today raised the interest rate it charges for lending to individual banks.

Those on tracker mortgages will have their repayments therefore immediately increased – while others on variable rate mortgages could also feel the pinch if the lenders themselves pass on the cost to those customers.

The increase is the first of what could be many in the coming months, as the ECB tries to stop the Eurozone’s inflation rate from getting beyond control – so below we’ve listed how much today’s increase will cost you.

Our figures are sorted by the total duration of your mortgage, and then its total value. Each figure refers to today’s 0.25 per cent increase only.
