Tracker mortgages are a very straightforward product whereby the interest rate of your mortgage is linked to the Bank of England base rate and moves up and down in lockstep with that rate. Let’s say the base interest rate on your mortgage is 1.5% and the BoE base rate is 0.1%. Your final interest rate would be the total of the 2, or 1.6%. If the BoE rate were to increase by 0.4% your rate would increase to 2.0%. At Mortgage & Lifetime Solutions we provide tracker mortgages in Orpington to work with every budget.
