    A £200,000 mortgage may increase by as much as £500 a month. A lot of mortgage lenders have stopped lending until they can see how interest rates develope. The average UK house price as of July was £292,000. A deposit can range from 5% to 20%. so between £14600 to £58,400. With the potential of repayments increasing on a £200,000 by a possible . At 3% interest on £200,000 monthly payment are £948 for a 25 year mortgage. Looking as if the Bank of England will increase interest rates to 6% in the coming days to protect the £GBP. Personally I feel sorry for those caught in the property market. Looks as if there will be a lot of folk caught in negative equity as it is looking that the housing market is on the verge of collapse.

    #40 Louis , I was foolish to post the Swastika as it may have caused offence to certain members.
    Perhaps some are totally insensitive as to what is happening to the UK economy.

    Seems we're all going to be in for a bumpy ride thanks to KamiKwasi???, the people I feel sorry for are the youngsters who are on the verge of obtaining a mortgage
    after years of saving for a deposit. Although it was not as serious as this, I experienced a similar thing when I was buying my first house in 1967, a week before I was
    due to sign the papers for my Mortgage Harold Wilson's labour Government devalued the pound, it increased my monthly payment's considerably but I pushed on and
    completed the deal. I lived there for 50 years and like many others I paid my mortgage off early, in my case it was paid off in two thirds of the. Basildon was a growing
    "New Town" requiring new Telephone exchanges and vast expansion of the telephone network, as a cable jointer there was unlimited overtime, I often worked 13 hour

    8 years, hard work, yes but well and truly worth it, I sold up in 2018 to downsize to the Bungalow I now live. Cheers John Collier

    Similar in 1977 John, i had been in a tied house and decided to get a house of my own, managed a deposit, and moved in, almost immediately the interest rate went to 11.2%. I took the car off the road for 18 months to enable us to still pay the mortgage, and eventually managed to keep up the payments , even when they went down, so finished the mortgage early. It looks like house prices will now tumble, as people cannot afford the payments, but that is how house prices have always gone in peaks and troughs. I think the main problem is the availability for cheap loans has been going on for years, and people went in deep, not just housing, but cars and holidays etc, thinking it was always going to be like that, so the big shock now comes.

    House prices are now being forecast to drop by at least 10% in the coming months and in the new year.

    Looks like a lot of people will end up in Negitive equity. Like a lot here we are the lucky ones being mortgage free.

    Talk about people having their head in the sand concerning the UK economy.

    Brexiteer Daniel Hannan blames fears of Labour government for market chaos

    A Conservative peer and former Brexiteer has suggested the market chaos of recent days has been driven by concerns over a possible Labour government rather than the government’s own economic policy.

    Seriously.

    Spot on Keith. It's the fatcat lenders that have got the people under their thumb. Started them at an early age with ease of access to debt.
    The other thing is strikes. Years ago a strike was all out until one side won, but today, it's a little here, and a little there, with little impact. Probably because strikers are already up to their eyes with easy credit spending. Maybe I'm wrong, but it's how I see it.

    What a huge leap to make, bringing in the unions as an excuse for the present chaos.
    The Tory government is solely responsible, unfunded borrowing and tax cuts for the wealthy have led to this. Mortgage holders and those trying to get on the housing ladder have been caught up in the incompetence of Truss and her Chancellor.
