BBC illustrative mortgage payments
"The increase in the Bank rate from 2.25% to 3% means those on a typical tracker mortgage will pay about £73.50 more a month. Those on standard variable rate mortgages face a £46 jump.
This comes on top of increases following the previous recent rate rises. Compared with pre-December 2021, average tracker mortgage customers will be paying about £284 more a month, and variable mortgage holders about £179 more."
The article doesn't give any of the assumptions behind these figures, so they are about as useful as a saying there's a £2,500 energy price cap (i.e., as useful as a chocolate teapot). Why do they think those on variable rate will have less of an increase than those on a tracker? Other articles I've seen say those on variable rates don't know what will happen and it depends what the lender decides to do, which is much more accurate.
