Richard Norrington, chief executive at Ipswich Building Society, said: “Just a matter of weeks ago, the markets were betting on an interest rate cut due to weak economic growth.
“However, following Rishi Sunak’s appointment as chancellor of the exchequer and talk of a big boost to public spending in next month’s Budget, some are now predicting higher interest rates on the horizon.
“These sorts of conflicting reports can cause real anxiety, particularly for first-time buyers who are on the brink of taking out their first mortgage.”
