Accord has today cut 30 fixed rate mortgage prices by up to 0.18 per cent.

The rate drops apply to the firm’s house purchase and remortgage products.

The 0.18 per cent drop applies to Accord’s two-year fixed rate for housebuyers at 80 per cent LTV, now 2.15 per cent.

This fee-free mortgage has £500 cashback and a free standard valuation.

The lender has cut its two-year fix for housebuyers and remortgagors at the 80 per cent LTV by 0.11 per cent to 1.68 per cent.

Accord mortgage manager Ben Merritt says: “We’ve spring cleaned our mortgage range to make it as competitive as possible for borrowers with differing budgets.
