Some of the biggest banks and building societies have increased the price of their mortgages.
Halifax raised its short term home move and first-time buyer fixed rates by up to 0.61% and Nationwide Building Society raised some of its lower deposit fixes by 0.35%. NatWest increased its two and five-year buy-to-let mortgages by 0.70%.
Santander for Intermediaries is increasing selected residential, Help to Buy and Buy to Let rates at 60%, 75% and 85% LTV by up to 0.35%, and withdrawing the 85% loan-to-value two year fixed purchase and remortgage products. Barclays has also raised rates.
Aaron Strutt, product director at Trinity Financial, says: "It is unusual for the lenders to increase their rates by over 0.5% especially as we have been used to them consistently lowering prices for years.
"If you are purchasing a property, there are still lots of super-cheap rates to choose from, but if you have a smaller deposit, you will pay slightly more than normal. Click here for our recent article explaining why the lenders are increasing their rates."
