“We’ve seen some downward fluctuation in swap rates recently, following news that the Bank Base Rate is expected to remain lower for longer, and this has enabled us to tweak the interest rates on our three and five-year fixes and make them even more attractive,” said Kris Brewster, Skipton’s head of products.

“At the same time, we’ve retained a wide selection of LTV options – up to 90% – to cater for a range of circumstances, including people whose equity has been reduced by current market conditions.

“And we continue to offer two and three-year tracker options, for people who are keen to take a punt on rates remaining lower for longer in order to benefit from a lower, tracker, rate today.”
