Today I wanted to talk about the base rate and your mortgage. 

Its Thursday 4th August 2022 and today’s increase in the base rate marks the 6th increase in a row.

Base rates have been so low for so long they likely haven’t really been on many peoples radar; lots of people with mortgages don’t even know what it is or how it affects them.
