What kinds of mortgages does Accord offer?

Many mortgage lenders have significantly cut their offerings this year due to the coronavirus outbreak.

When we checked in September 2020, there were 129 mortgage deals available from Accord, with some offering cashback of up to £500.

Almost all were fixed-rate, meaning your interest rate is guaranteed to stay the same for a set number of years. Most of these deals had initial periods of two or five years, though a handful of three, seven, 10 and even 15-year deals were available too.

 

Does Accord offer the best mortgage deals?

Our experts analysed hundreds of mortgages over a four-week period in July 2020. They compiled a total of 208 ‘top-10 cheapest deal’ tables based on a variety of borrowing scenarios, and counted how many times each lender featured in a table.

The average number of times a lender made it into a cheapest deals table was 16, but Accord failed to feature at all, meaning it rarely offers the cheapest rate on the market. (Data source: Moneyfacts.)

Interest rates on Accord Mortgages

In September 2020, the average rate on Accord's two-year fixed-rate deals was 2.31%. That's just below the overall market average of 2.33%.

How much could I borrow from Accord Mortgages?

Accord will lend to first-time buyers and home movers at up to 90% loan-to-value, and remortgagers at up to 95% loan-to-value.

Accord doesn't publish its borrowing caps, so you'll need to speak to your broker about how much you might be able to borrow in relation to your annual salary.

Can I make overpayments?

Accord lets borrowers overpay their mortgage in regular payments or lump sums. Overpayments of up to 10% of the mortgage balance each year are allowed.

How can I contact Accord Mortgages?

Accord only lends through brokers. Customers who are new to Accord should therefore contact a mortgage broker.
