Thing is, if one mortgage company can get away with this, who will be next to try it?  My home mortgage is base plus 0.5% and is big enough for me at the moment at 1%.  If they upped that to 3% I'd not be destitute, but my plans of paying off the capital will be hit.  If bank base rates go up, then fair enough, but randomly adding extra when we'd taken out lifetimes is just wrong.

It's that feeling of helplessness, that someone in a suit makes a decision and you just have to swallow the consequences. Grrrr. AND the government is taking the EU to court to protect bankers bonuses....double grrrr!
