In the “safe” those who chose firmware in the past years – Variable rate mortgages after the latest European Central Bank intervention It will grow on average by about 50 euros per installment, the situation is different from “fixed”. The aggressive use, in recent years, of fixed rates for mortgages largely “immunizes” families from rate hikes decided by the European Central Bank. This was stated by ABI Deputy Director Gianfranco Torriero in the presentation of the monthly report which stated that “in the past four to five years, 80% of new mortgages have been at a flat rate” and that is also why there has been a significant increase in bad debt unexpected, in the coming months, on this sector.
