Switching from a tracker rate.
There are approximately 200,000 tracker mortgages remaining in Ireland. Lenders stopped issuing tracker mortgages in 2008.
Typical tracker mortgage rates are calculated at a margin of between 1% and 1.5% over the ECB base rate, Tracker mortgages are in the news again because the ECB base rates have risen by 2.5% over the past 6 months and in turn these increases have been passed onto the tracker mortgage holders in full.
It seems highly likely that the base rate will rise further to 3.5% or more over the coming months.
What to do if you are ona trcaker mortgage rates.
1. Contact your mortgage provider and confirm the margn you are currently paying over ECB and ask what base rate currently applies to your mortgage..
