What is the difference between an SVR and a Tracker Mortgage?
A tracker mortgage is a variable mortgage which tracks the Bank of England Base Rate (BBR). This means rates rise or fall in line with any changes to the BBR.
A Standard Variable Rate (SVR) is set by the Bank of Ireland Group and can change at any time throughout the year.
