  • Collars!

    I have a HSBC mortgage, taken out well before the housing crisis...
    I am at present 0.89% above BoE base rate, so 3.89%, its a life time tracker.
    I have just got off the phone with HSBC, and asking if I have a collar on my mortgage ( a minimum % the mortgage will go down to regardless of the BoE base rate ) I was told 'no' you dont, but the guy warned that HSBC were reviewing the active tracker mortgages and might action a collar on them!
    Now is that possible? I always believed that mortgages were sealed from both ends when signed!!!

    I think it depends on your terms and conditions - anything in your contract that says HSBC can change this?
