Skipton BS launches new fixed and tracker range

Skipton Building Society has launched a range of new two-year fixed rates and two and three-year trackers.

The deals are available from tomorrow through Skipton branches, its contact centre and intermediaries.

The range includes a two-year fixed to 60 per cent loan-to-value at 2.98 per cent, a two-year tracker at base rate plus 1.78 per cent to 60 per cent LTV and a three-year tracker at base rate plus 2.18 per cent to 60 per cent LTV.

The new range includes mortgages from 60 per cent to 90 per cent LTV, including a two-year fixed rate mortgage to 90 per cent LTV at 5.38 per cent.

All products come with a £995 completion fee and overpayments of up to 10 per cent annually. Free legals and valuations are available for remortgages.

Skipton has also launched a range of new three and five-year fixed rate mortgages today.

The three-year fixed mortgages start at 3.78 per cent to 60 per cent LTV and include a 90 per cent LTV mortgage at 5.98 per cent. The five-year fixed rate range includes a 60 per cent LTV deal at 4.68 per cent and a 90 per cent LTV deal at 6.28 per cent.

Senior product manager William Gill says: “We hope that – coupled with the longer term fixes we launched today – these latest products will assist more borrowers with their mortgage requirements – including people with lower deposits.”

Guide: how to change your auto-enrolment support

As we approach the two-year milestone of auto-enrolment, employers have had the opportunity to truly assess the capabilities of their chosen support. They are also now realising that getting to the staging date was the easy part, and that support is required for almost every aspect of the day to day running of their scheme. With the three-year re-enrolment window coinciding for many with the total removal of commission and Active Member Discounts from pension-related products and services, as well as the introduction of the pension charge cap in April 2015, many employers will have no choice but to review their support options. But, what is involved in transitioning your auto-enrolment scheme away from your current support options? This guide from Johnson Fleming aims to outline some of these key areas and provide information and discussion points on what you need to consider.
