Skipton Intermediaries

Skipton Intermediaries

Skipton Building Society have been helping people secure homes of their own since 1853. They take a common sense approach to lending, and that’s why their underwriting decisions are made by people - not computers.

The majority of their lending is through their intermediary channel.

Skipton’s Real Life Lending Charter underpins the way they work with you, demonstrates their commitment to you and recognises the vital role you play in today’s complex marketplace.
