Skipton Building Society refreshes select products

Skipton Building Society has refreshed its high LTV residential products and buy to let trackers.

The refreshed product in the residential range is a five-year 95 per cent LTV purchase at 3.34 per cent with a £495 fee.

Within the firm’s BTL range a five-year 60 per cent LTV product, for both purchase and remortgage is available at 2.02 per cent, with a £1,995 fee.

Furthermore, Skipton has announced two BTL two-year trackers, the first a 60 per cent LTV, at 2.51 per cent and the second a 75 per cent LTV, at 2.65 per cent.

Both products come with a £495 fee and no ERCs.

According to the building society, purchase products offer free valuation, while only select remortgage products include free valuation and free standard legal fees.

Skipton Building Society product manager Alex Beavis says: “We are delighted to introduce these refreshed products for residential purchase, remortgage, and buy to let customers.

“By removing early repayment charges on the BTL trackers we are offering greater flexibility for landlords.

“These refreshed products are available through the Society’s Skipton Direct customer service centre, branches and all intermediaries.”
