  • I dont think you will see rates rise at all this year. I would however expect rates to start increasing in the first Quarter of 2010 but this will not be a rapid increase. The number of home owners in negative equity means that any sharp increase will force those suffering financial hardship into possible default and subsequent repossesions. This is something that the banks and the government would not want to encourage.
