These new products are available through the Society’s Skipton Direct customer service centre, branches and all intermediaries.

“We recognise that there are many people out there who would maybe like to re-mortgage but are struggling to find suitable deals,” said Kris Brewster, Skipton’s head of products.

“Customers tell us that one of their greatest barriers to re-mortgaging is the fees normally associated with moving from one product or provider to another. That’s why, while we’ve kept the interest rates on our re-mortgage range the same, we’ve taken away the application and completion fee, which normally total around £1,000.

“This, combined with the free valuation and legal work, makes these products better value overall than many others out there.”
