Bank of England keep status quo – UK Interest Rate remain at 0.5%

The Bank of England has today decided to keep the UK Interest rate at 0.5% and at the same time to maintain the level of the asset purchase programme – i.e. has decided on no new quantitative easing (QE) measures. The maintains the record low for UK interest rates for the 23rd month in a row. Both of these decision were widely expected through the media and economists, however whether they were unanimous or not will have to wait until the minutes are released later in the month. Last months minutes showed a 3-way split, but only 1 member (out of 9) voting for a rate rise.

Be Aware and BEWARE When Viewing Auction Properties

  Looking to buy property is an exciting time. It is even more exciting when you think you may bag a potential bargain. However, you have to be aware and beware when it comes to buying property at auction as you don’t have a lot of time to do the necessary research – but once you’ve bought it, you will have a lot of time to reflect on any mistakes!   Typically auction catalogues are released 14 days prior to auction. That means you have just two weeks to view the property, check the legals, get a survey, raise the finance, research the area, assess demand, research the end value, cost any works, get quotes from trades people – it’s a lot of work to do in a short space of time!   Because there is so much to do – and so little time – and because you are...

Record low continues as Bank of England leaves interest rates at 0.5

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="313" caption="Boring, but good for Investing"][/caption] Well the Bank of England have decided to leave UK interest rates at their record low of 0.5%, now for the 21st month. Slightly boring from a news and graph persepctive, but very good news for property investors who can continue to benefit from these low rates. Yet although the US announced it would make a further $600bn of quantatie easing available, the Bank of England decided not to pump any more money into the economy. It will be interesting to see what the minutes with respect to whether we may get further QE, especially as the move in the US has caused the US and UK markets to hit a record 2 year high.
