A 65 per cent LTV, two-year fix has been reduced 0.25 per cent to 1.84 per cent, with £845 product fee, while a rate of 2.19 is offered on the same product with a £500 cashback offer.

At 70 per cent LTV, a two-year fix is reduced 22 basis points to 1.89 per cent, down from 2.11, with £845 product fee.  

Other products within the 65, 70 and 75 per cent LTV bands have all been reduced by 0.1 per cent for the duration of the 10-day sale, which ends 1 October.

Accord Mortgages national account manager David Robinson says: “Our ten-day sales have proven popular in the past with brokers and customers. They give brokers certainty over how long the products are available for in a rapidly changing market and provide the opportunity to proactively approach customers to promote these limited availability products.”

The lender held a similar 10-day sale for buy-to-let products in July.
