The revised product range will feature rate cuts of up to 0.80 percentage points on new build products and marks a change in the way the society deals with new build customers.

Borrowers purchasing a newly built home will now have access to all of Skipton’s residential core range products or any applicable residential exclusive up to 85% loan-tovalue (LTV). All existing new build products at 75%, 80% and 85% LTV will be withdrawn.

The launch includes rate cuts of up to 0.20 percentage points to existing Help to Buy purchase and remortgage rates, as well as the addition of a new 70% LTV product tier to the existing Help to Buy remortgage range.

All new build business, regardless of product selection, will continue to receive a free upfront valuation, while the Help to Buy range offers free valuation, plus £500 cashback on selected products.
