Has anybody worked out yet the potential impact on mortgage repayments per 1000 euro borrowed. Also, will this have any further impact on the already depressed resale market.

(Assuming a straight increase of 0.25 by the bank) Personally I don’t think this will impact all that much, in fact why the ECB bothered at all is a mystery. Still makes the UK look expensive!

Although low it will worry some buyers wary about the bad old days of 15% plus rates!
