A two-year fix at 1.66 per cent is available at 65 per cent LTV, while a five-year product is being introduced at 75 per cent LTV with a rate of 2.24 per cent. Both products also have no upfront product fees.

The intermediary-only lender, part of Yorkshire Building Society, has also reduced rates across selected 65 per cent, 75 per cent and 80 per cent LTV fixed rate mortgages by up to 0.10 per cent.

In addition, Accord has reduced the rate on its two-year base rate tracker at 65 per cent LTV by 0.05 per cent to 1.24 per cent with no ERC.

Accord national intermediary sales manager David Robinson, says: “It is proving to be a popular time for borrowers to remortgage at the moment, especially those seeking lower loan-to-value deals.

“We believe that our new remortgage options will prove popular amongst borrowers and the options across the different terms, plus the additional features, will help brokers to choose the best loan to suit their clients’ requirements.”
