Mark Robinson, managing director at Albion Forest Mortgages:

“The residential mortgage market is all over the place right now. Some lenders are making multiple increases in a week, and others are randomly dropping rates. At this stage it’s almost anyone’s guess what could happen next. Whilst the market is turbulent at the moment, the lowering of buy-to-let rates is a welcome change. Landlords appear to have seen far fewer rate decreases lately.”

Michelle Lawson, director at Lawson Financial:

“The mixed bag of increases and reductions further highlights the uncertainty and volatility in the mortgage market at a time when people need stability. It’s excellent to see a lender giving 24 hours’ notice of changes, which at least means borrowers can be contacted and can make an informed rather than a rushed decision.”

Darryl Dhoffer, adviser at The Mortgage Expert:

“Joining the interest rate-rising train is now Clydesdale Building Society. Though these are marginal increases, they will still compound borrowers’ already high interest mortgage woes. Better news is a reduction to their buy-to-let rates, which are more significant and will be welcomed by landlords.”

Lewis Shaw, owner and mortgage expert at Shaw Financial Services:

“It’s not even time for the second coffee of the day, and the rate increase emails have started again. Thankfully, these are only marginal changes but there’s a good chance we’ll see a number of lenders updating their fixed rate pricing this week, especially after the inflation numbers and the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee meeting. It’s hold on to your hats time.”
