Accord Buy to Let launches new fixed rate range


Accord Buy To Let is launching a new fixed-rate range, with some five-year options from 2.99 per cent.

The range includes free standard valuations on all loans and the choice of either standard legal fees or £300 cashback on completion.

The new products include a 2.99 per cent five-year fixed rate mortgage at 60 per cent LTV with no product completion fee and a 2.99 per cent five-year fix at 75 per cent LTV with a £1,845 fee.

Accord has also cut rates on selected fixed rate mortgages by up to 0.15 per cent.

The lender now has a 1.84 per cent two-year fix at 60 per cent LTV for landlords looking to remortgage.

The loan has a £1,845 fee, free standard valuation and a choice of either free standard legal fees or £300 cashback on completion.

Accord Buy to Let commercial manager Chris Maggs says: “We hope the additional incentives, and choice of no product completion fee options, will minimise the cost for landlords when they take out a remortgage on a property.”
