Accord launches two-year tracker with no ERC

Accord Mortgages has launched a two-year tracker mortgage with no early repayment charges.

The new mortgage from the intermediary-only lender, part of Yorkshire Building Society, has an interest rate of 1.29 per cent at 65 per cent LTV and is available for purchase and remortgage borrowers.


There is a £995 fee attached.

The lender has also launched two short-term fixed rate deals; a two-year fix at 1.32 per cent at 65 per cent LTV (loan-to-value), and a 1.62 per cent two-year fix at 85 per cent LTV.

Both mortgages are available to purchase and remortgage customers and come with a £1,495 product fee plus free standard valuation.

“Our new tracker allows them to do this with the reassurance that they are not incurring any charges and can switch product at any time without having to pay ERCs – that could be particularly appealing should the Base Rate creep up.”

Almost nine in 10 employers admit failings with post-DRA compliance

The default retirement age (DRA) was abolished more than three years ago, yet new research from Jelf Employee Benefits suggests that the vast majority of employers still have some way to go to fully understand, comply and communicate the landmark legislation change that prevents older employees being forcibly retired on the grounds of age alone.
