Interest rate hikes are expected to make homeowners with mortgages one of the greatest losers this year. Meanwhile, the most well-off households in the UK would potentially gain from higher returns on investments and savings, as per a study conducted by the Resolution Foundation.

The leading thinktank has reportedly said that the way in which the UK Government has been dealing with the inflationary crisis, by significantly depending on the Bank of England’s rate hikes, has put mortgage households at the center of the country’s income crunch.

In a report that is focused on the extraordinary growth in costs faced by the average UK households, the thinktank has said that 3 million families are facing a rise of £3,000 per year in their mortgage costs by the ending of the next financial year (2023-24).

An increase in mortgage rates and the wider effect of the rising inflationary pressures on food and transport costs will represent a fall of 12% in the real income of an average mortgage household from the financial year 2021-22 to 2023-24.

However, the thinktank claimed that the wealthier section of households would actually gain due to the rate hikes as they would lead to an upsurge in investment and saving income over the coming year.
