Accord reduces buy-to-let rates

Kris Brewster, Skipton’s head of products, said: “We are delighted to offer lower rates on selected products in our Help to Buy range, and to introduce new 3 year remortgage products.

“We’re also pleased to continue to offer our 2 and 5-year New Build range, which offers great value for those wishing to purchase their new home.

“We believe our New Build Residential 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. All new build applications to Skipton are given a priority underwrite within its specialist underwriting team.”

The society has also extended the end dates on all Help to Buy and New Build products to 31-January

In addition to the above product changes, Skipton has replaced the current free legal incentive on Help to Buy remortgage products with £500 cash-back.
