What is Skipton Building Society's 100% Mortgage?

May 26, 2023
100% Mortgage

Are you struggling to save for your deposit? Whether you’re a first-time buyer moving out of your parents’ house or a renter looking to get on the property ladder, Skipton Building Society’s new 100% mortgage is here to help. This five-year fixed no-deposit deal is designed to help potential buyers purchase homes.

If you’re ready to take the leap, learn more about 100% mortgages, how they work and who’s eligible in this handy guide.

How does Skipton Building Society’s 100% mortgage work?

A 100% mortgage is a five-year fixed deal with a mortgage term of up to 35 years and a 5.49% interest rate. The amount you can borrow must be equivalent to or less than your monthly rent.

For example, if your rent is £1,500, your 100% mortgage can’t be more than £1,500 a month.

Skipton's 100% mortgages are unavailable on new build flats. If you have a deposit, this must be at most 5% of the purchase price to apply for a 100% mortgage in the UK.

Can I get a 100% mortgage?

You must determine your eligibility before applying for Skipton’s 100% mortgage. You must:

• Be age 21 or over
• Be a first-time buyer
• Be a renter moving household-to-household
• Have paid rent for 12 consecutive months within the last 18 months
• Have paid utility bills for 12 months
• Look for a loan equal to or less than £600,000

What does household-to-household mean?

Household-to-household means the same people (or the same person) applying for the 100% mortgage have been renting together for the past 12 months. 

What are the other options for first-time buyers?

If you’re a first-time buyer but don’t qualify for the 100% mortgage, other low-deposit schemes may suit your needs.
