Demand sees Skipton pull 95% deals

Skipton Building Society has temporarily pulled out of 95% LTV lending.

The lender entered the 95% LTV market in March last year but says it has temporarily withdrawn products due to unexpected demand.
Skipton initially offered a single product through subsidiary Connells. Before its withdrawal it offered two 95% LTV products – a three-year and a five-year fixed rate.
