What is the Bank of England Bank Rate?
If you have a have a base rate loan or mortgage, the interest rate we apply will always move in line with the changes to the Bank of England Bank Rate.
If your interest rate is fixed, any change to the Bank Rate will not affect the interest rate during the fixed period. However the interest rate you move to after the fixed period ends may be variable and therefore could change in response to changes in the Bank Rate.
The interest rate on a Base Rate Loan will fluctuate in line with changes to the Bank of England Bank Rate – the rate of interest may increase or decrease over the committed term of the loan and this will affect the total repayment amount.
The current Bank of England Bank Rate is 0.10% (effective from 19 March 2020).
