Skipton offers new buy-to-let option

Skipton Building Society has launched a new mortgage for borrowers wanting to invest in the property market. The residential buy-to-let mortgage has a 1.3% discount in year one, offering an initial rate of 4.4%.

In year two this reverts to a 0.5% discount off the lender’s variable rate, and then reverts to the variable rate in year three.

It is available up to 80% LTV and has a number of flexible features, including daily calculation of interest, overpayments and payment holidays.

There is a £250 arrangement fee and a redemption penalty of 2% of the balance of the mortgage applies for the first two years, although up to 10% of the capital can be repaid each year without charge, each year.

Jennifer Holloway, head of corporate communications at Skipton Building Society, said: ‘Stock market performance has led to people taking the safe option and putting their money into more traditional savings accounts. However, those wanting a slightly higher return, with a degree of increased risk, are still considering buy-to-let as a potentially profitable form of investment.

‘This mortgage has been designed specifically to help those investing in property for the first time to ease onto the buy-to-let ladder, with an attractive discount in the first 12 months.’
