Homeownership is more affordable than you think.
Buying a home is without a doubt one of the biggest financial decisions that you will ever make, but it’s also one of the most rewarding too.
Whether you’re a first-time buyer, downsizer, or looking to take the leap from renting to owning your own, buying new usually brings much lower living costs making it a sensible and achievable option.
And, with a 5% deposit contribution on many of our homes on us, you’ll only need to find 5% to make your dream move.

If the Bank of England Base rate changes, the lender will review the interest rate applicable to your mortgage on the first working day of the following month. Skipton Building Society will then notify you in writing of your new interest rate and payment, which will take into effect from the first day of the month following the review. Skipton Building Society will follow this procedure whether the Bank of England Base Rate rises or falls.
