Selling house in Oct/Nov. Fixed rate mortgage ends in August.

Hi MSE forumites.

I'm after a quick bit of advice.

My house is currently being sold (no onward chain) and we hope to complete in October. My fixed rate mortgage however, with Natwest, finishes at the end of August.

We currently pay £650 per month but from the end of August it will jump to £1200 per month approx (double essentially). Obviously I'd like to avoid this hike given we're selling although speaking to Natwest they barely gave me any suggestion (it was very poor customer service given the current financial climate).

I'd welcome any realistic advice if anyone can help.

Thank you.
