Mortgage Rates Drop To Seven-Year Low.

Recommended Posts

This is good news and hopefully will drive down the cost of SMI

1.112 The rate at which Support for Mortgage Interest (SMI) is paid is set at 1.58 percentage points above the Bank of England Base rate, and it has been frozen at 6.08 per cent since late 2008 although interest rates have fallen significantly. To put SMI on a more sustainable footing and to better reflect mortgage costs, SMI will be paid at the level of the Bank of England’s published Average Mortgage Rate from October 2010.
