ANGER AS AIB BANK HIKES UP THE COST OF VARIABLE MORTGAGES AGAIN

first_imgAIB: Families set to be hit againAIB variable mortgage holders are facing yet another hike in the cost of keeping their homes – with another 0.4% increase on the way.Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has said that Minister Noonan should act to stop AIB’s interest rates going up for the third time in a year. Speaking today Deputy Doherty said: “After today’s refusal by the Minister to say no to Richie Boucher’s huge pay, he must now step up and stop AIB and EBS increasing their variable interest rates. This will affect 70,000 borrowers at AIB alone. “The ECB are generally considered to be moving towards lowering their interest rates yet in Ireland a state-owned bank is hiking-up its rates.“AIB is 99% owned by the state, by the people. They cannot be allowed to increase again their variable interest rates. This government talks a good talk on easing the mortgage crisis but yet they stand by while state-owned banks increase the cost of borrowing.“Sinn Fein will soon bring a Bill to the Oireachtas which would disallow banks that have availed of state support to increase their interest rates without seeking approval.“The Financial Regulator would be required to weigh up the interests of not only but the bank but also of the customers.” Ulster Bank customers who don’t lodge €3,000k a month to their accounts are also facing higher fees and ‘management charges’ of €4 per month. ANGER AS AIB BANK HIKES UP THE COST OF VARIABLE MORTGAGES AGAIN was last modified: April 24th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ANGER AS AIB BANK HIKES UP THE COST OF VARIABLE MORTGAGES AGAINlast_img
