Skipton mortgage customer ratings
Skipton Building Society is based in North Yorkshire, and offers mortgages on homes across Great Britain.
When we surveyed its customers in July 2021, they gave it five out of five for the clarity of its mortgage statements. Unfortunately, as Skipton is a comparatively small lender, we didn't get big enough sample sizes to calculate star ratings on any other measures.
What kinds of mortgages does Skipton offer?
When we checked in September 2021, there were 67 mortgages available from Skipton. All of these deals were fixed-rate - meaning your interest rate will stay the same for a set initial period.
Skipton's mortgages came with a initial period of either two, three, five or 10 years.
Does Skipton offer the best mortgage deals?
Our experts analysed hundreds of mortgages over a four-week period in July and August 2021. They compiled a total of 206 ‘top-10 cheapest deal’ tables based on a variety of borrowing scenarios, and counted how many times each lender featured in a table.
The average number of times a lender made it into a table was 24, but Skipton didn't feature at all, meaning it didn't offer market-leading rates in any of our scenarios. (Data source: Moneyfacts.)
