Skipton Building Society is continuing its support of the UK housing market by reducing the rates on its interest only mortgage range.
The residential interest only range provides 60%, 70% and 80% LTV products available to purchase and remortgage customers.
The suite of products, which offers free valuations and standard legals for remortgages, now includes a fee free 2 year fix at 1.69% to 60% LTV and 1.43% to 70% LTV with £1,495 completion fee. The 5 year fixed range includes a fee free fix at 2.15% to 60% LTV.
Kris Brewster, Skipton’s Head of Products, said:
“Since launching in June, the Interest Only range has seen strong demand, and it’s great that we’re able to continue to support our members by lowering the rates across the range.

Reducing these rates means we can do just that while ensuring this type of product is only taken out by borrowers that have a defined exit strategy to repay the loan.
These rate reductions complement a renewed focus on the Society’s interest only offering, with Skipton in June enhancing its policy for interest only residential lending:
