Clock ticking for low interest rate time bomb

UK Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) say repossessions have shrunk by 25% year on year. However mortgage largue that mass repossessions are a disaster waiting to happen.

According to statistics released from the CML today, the number of repossessions was 9,800, down from 10,600 in the previous quarter and 13,200 in the first quarter of 2009. Also there was a reported reduction in the overall arrears numbers.

However, mortgage experts fear that low interest rates may be masking a future problem and artificially making mortgages more affordable for beleaguered borrowers.

During the boom times many mortgages were granted from specialist lenders with cheap fixed rates for a limited period to borrowers with a poor credit history or were self employed. The rates after the fixed period were very high, although recently they have been forced down by low interest rates.

Experts argue that these kinds of mortgages are now a ticking time bomb as when normal market conditions resume these mortgages will double in interest rate overnight, in many cases to over 10% interest rates.

Mortgage Expert, Chris Gardner, of UK mortgage and property website Obligo.co.uk said “these types of deals are at rates today that are much lower than they would be under normal market conditions. Borrowers have found themselves with mortgages that are artificially affordable. When rates begin to raise the effect will be disastrous”

Obligo.co.uk calculates that the average £150,000 interest only mortgage for these types of mortgage will increase £625 per month to over £1250 per month.

Gardner went on “Clearly when rates rise back to pre-recession levels these borrowers will struggle to pay and many will get into arrears, and sadly then on to repossession. The problem is compounded by the fact that these self same borrowers cannot remortgage to cheaper deals with other lenders – the lending rules are now so tight for these kinds of borrowers that they now effectively mortgage prisoners – trapped in high rate loans they cannot afford”

Consumers who find themselves in trouble with a mortgage are urged to try renegotiate the terms with their existing lender if possible. In some instances lenders may reduce penalties and exit charges and in some cases have reportedly even paid borrowers to go elsewhere. If direct action with your mortgage lender fails find a reputatable broker and see what can be done. According to Obligo, even in the current market there are lenders who will listen if the loan to value and circumstances are right.

Are you seriously thinking about computer upgrades? You think you need a better RAM? Or a larger hard disk? Or perhaps you are not happy with the operating system and need to upgrade all your graphic and video cards too. The scenario is very common.

But stop and think; do you really need computer upgrades when your computer seems to be working just fine, without any major hitches. And are you sure the upgrade will be compatible and add to the functioning of the computer and will not cause new errors because most of the times. A good working computer when upgraded starts conking because of the up gradation, as it may be incompatible with the old drives or the operating system. And upgrading a computer that runs poorly doesn’t really improve its functioning. Normally upgrading the memory of your computer is the most cost effective upgrade.

Before you decide to go for computer upgradesyou should do your own research.

If you feel you need to go for the upgrade, do save up all your data and take back ups properly so that in the case of any eventuality you have your dare safe.Hardware upgradation can sometimes leave you with a very unstable computer.

Before thinking of computer upgrades, have you tried cleaning up your system properly to speed it up? Many a times the dust slows the computer down and is responsible for keeping unnecessary heat trapped in side, which in turn slows or stops the system form working in its optimum condition. Overall cost of the upgrade should be substantially less than the cost of replacement. Rule of the thumb is if the total cost of your computer upgrades were costing you more than 50 % of the cost of the new computer, it would be wise to invest in a completely new computer instead of spending your time and money on upgrading the old one.

Companies and professionals that deal in computer repair and maintenance can provide a more objective solution to your upgrading dilemmas.
