Fixed mortgages rates have risen again after a brief fall, according to figures from a financial information website.
The average two-year homeowner mortgage rate on the market edged back up to 6.8% on Friday from 6.79% yesterday, Moneyfactscompare.co.uk said.
Five-year fixes have also risen back to 6.32%, up from 6.31% on Thursday.
On Wednesday, it emerged inflation had slowed quicker than expected, giving a glimmer of hope for under-pressure mortgage borrowers.
The Bank of England uses base rate rises as a tool to cool inflation.
The Bank is still expected to raise interest rates – currently at 5% – at its next meeting on 3 August as it battles to bring inflation back to its 2% target.
But experts have said the bigger-than-expected fall in inflation could see the Bank’s policymakers opt for a smaller increase of 0.25 percentage points rather than another 0.5 percentage point rise.
