Reacting to the rate rise, Sarah said: "This is the first time we've seen interest rates increase since 2007, so homeowners who've entered the property market in the last decade have never had to deal with the impact rate rises can have on monthly mortgage costs". This means that unfortunately, your rate will increase with today's base rate rise. Some will certainly experience some pain, but for most, it should be manageable even if they have grown rather used to their mortgage bills coming down rather than rising.

Large (in eligible areas) 30 year FHA refinance fixed rate mortgage interest rates stand at 4.125% and April of 4.132%.

When will mortgage rates go up?

'I'd like to see the big high street banks start to offer better rates instead of paying large sums to their top men while having an accounts paying 0.01 per cent.

He predicts a series of small, 0.25 per cent, increases over time, particularly while the Bank of England and the rest of the financial economy waits for some kind of certainty over the impact of Brexit.

Households on variable or tracker mortgages will see their monthly costs increase by about £15, according to Nationwide.

"For the average United Kingdom mortgage, an extra £22 per month might be the tipping point". Will we pay more on our mortgage in exchange for benefits elsewhere?

At this moment in time, although we await official confirmation, many mortgage companies have indicated that they will pass on the full rate rise to their variable rate mortgage holders.

On £50,000, now paying £225 a month, by £6.

As observed by Adrian Hull, co-head of fixed income at Kames Capital, "this rate cycle is set to be a long and protracted affair".

"Borrowers who have tracker mortgages with the society will see their rate of interest increase in line with Bank Base Rate with effect from December 1".

Nearly four million households face higher mortgage interest payments after the rate rise. Meanwhile, the average rate on 10-year fixed refis also tapered off.

How will it affect you if you have a variable mortgage?

Elsewhere, Skipton Building Society said it would be keeping its variable rate mortgages on hold, and said it had no plans to raise them in future.

Sharing his views on the impact of the potential rate rise was Robert Gardner. The lenders tend to cover themselves against the risk of rates going up or down by doing their own deals in the wholesale money markets - and the prices there depend on dealers' predictions (or bets) on what will happen.

The move was on the cards since the latest GDP figure was announced, showing further growth in the United Kingdom economy.

"We estimate one in 10 of our clients with a mortgage will end up with a deficit budget, and some households will need support to adjust", said Mike O'Connor.

TSB also confirmed it is increasing its standard variable mortgage products by 0.25 per cent, as did Coventry Building Society, and Coventry for intermediaries.

If you already have a fixed-rate mortgage your payments will stay the same until the deal expires. For first time buyers, the higher the deposit, the better the rates available.
