Birmingham Midshires’ current rates are due to be withdrawn at midnight tomorrow. Full details must be received by close of business Tuesday 11th March in order to secure the rate requested.

We have had unofficial information which indicates rates are to go up quite sharply.

I have an mortgage offer from them that expires on 28th April, 5.5% fixed for ten years.

Might have to take advantage of the cheap dosh and find somewhere quick.

Laurejon,

Not sure 5.5% is going to look particularly cheap soon, also from similar experience with C&G a couple of years ago, you may need to actually get a cheque to them for the booking fee and details of the house. I think most of those mortgage offers with expiry dates in the future don't guarantee the funds at any particular rate (and, although I've not checked paperwork, I suspect they can pull them anyway at anytime.)

I am a triple A AAA, at first I thought it was an insult and I looked like a dry cell battery, but apparantly it means I am a good bet with a mortgage.

The Mortgage is fixed, and available as it was the product of a previous aborted purchase, a purchase that I think I may well revisit with a further 10k drop in addition to the 10k I knocked off the asking price, and the 10k they offered to drop when I pulled the contract.

Its for investment purposes, I seem to be p1ssing my money up the wall, its great fun for a while doing whatever, spending on anything you want without thinking about it, but its high time I looked to the future.

I suspect that it's too late - sorry. An mortgage offer is only firm when there is a property associated. Check with them if they'll honour it - and let us know.

Have you had any news about the new rates yet?

Back in last summer, our 10 yr fixed mortgage offer was good for 6 months when our purchase fell through.

That was pre-August though.
