    I’m on Euribor plus 1.25% so from next month my Int rate will be about 1.82% (.57% plus 1.25%)some of the current rates I see IRPH Cajas etc are scandalous

    We are euribor +1% but depends on the rate in May to come into effect from July onwards. When the bank was merged with another caja the new manager refused to believe we didn’t have a fixed minimum rate (which makes me assume that everyone with a CajaGranada mortgage had abusive minimum clauses then).
