David Kuo, spoke further: "Fixed-rate mortgages are the best way for homeowners to insulate themselves from rate rises. It is ideal for people who need to know where they stand financially from pay packet to pay packet. Currently, interest rates are expected to rise 0.25% within the next two months and a further 0.25% six months after that."

Mr Kuo added: "There is, of course, no guarantee that base rates will rise to 5.75% before the end of 2007. However, borrowers should resist the temptation of second-guessing the direction of interest rates when their homes are at stake."
