We were mentioned in an article by Charlie Weston in the Irish Independent about Ulsterbank. They have decided to jack up their variable interest rate by 0.6%, our response is below:
Karl Deeter, director of operations at Irish Mortgage Brokers, said the move by Ulster Bank meant it now had one of the highest variable rates in the market. “This increase means there is no safe haven for borrowers if you do not have an existing fixed rate or a tracker,” he said.
This accurately reflects our sentiments on the matter, there are effectively no ways for consumers to protect themselves.
