Switching your mortgage deal

When you take out a fixed rate, tracker or discounted mortgage with us, the initial deal lasts for a set period. Once this time is up, you have a few options. Including: start paying the Mortgage Variable rate (MVR), pay a discounted rate on our MVR (where applicable) for a set period, take out a mortgage with another lender or switch to another deal with Skipton.

Frequently asked questions

If you decide not to switch your deal, your mortgage will automatically move on to our Mortgage Variable Rate, or where applicable you will pay a discounted rate on our Mortgage Variable Rate for a set period. However this could mean your payments may be higher or lower, depending on your current rate. The Mortgage Variable Rate is a variable rate set by Skipton which can change from time to time.

If you've been thinking about making any home improvements, and are considering applying for additional borrowing you might want to do this at the same time as switching to a new deal. Call our mortgage advisers on 0345 607 9842 if you have any questions and to find out more. Additional borrowing is subject to our lending criteria and your individual circumstances.

You could lose your home if you don’t keep up your mortgage repayments. Most Buy to Let mortgages aren’t regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
