Skipton BS cuts rates by up to 0.2 per cent


Skipton Building Society has reduced rates by up to 0.2 per cent across some of its two and five-year fixed rate range.

The reduced rate products all include a free valuation and the range includes a two-year fix at 1.79 per cent to 80 per cent LTV with £995 fee for house purchases and a two-year fix at 1.49 per cent to 60 per cent LTV for remortgages.

The five-year fixed range now includes rates at 2.45 per cent to 70 per cent LTV with £995 fee for purchases and 2.12 per cent to 60 per cent LTV for remortgages with a £1995 fee.

In addition, Skipton has also launched an exclusive, low rate two-year fixed mortgage with Personal Touch Financial Services available for both purchases and remortgages.

It is available up to 75 per cent LTV and not only provides a free valuation but also includes £250 cash back on completion.

Skipton head of products Kris Brewster says: “We believe our two and five year products offer very attractive rates and will help first time buyers and those looking to move up the housing ladder to realise their dream of moving into a new property.”
