Accord Adds New Build Lending To 90% LTV Range

Accord Mortgages is improving its higher loan-to-value mortgage range to include new build options up to 90% loan-to-value (LTV) from Friday 21 May, giving borrowers much needed choice in what’s currently a very limited market.

The intermediary-only lender’s latest proposition enhancement comes after a year in which Accord continually supported borrowers with smaller deposits, offering 90% LTV mortgages and leading the market with 5% deposit mortgages earlier this year.

For borrowers buying a new build with a maximum loan size of £500,000, the new range includes:

  • A two-year fixed rate at 3.70%
  • A five-year fixed rate at 3.76%

For borrowers with a maximum loan size of £600,000, the following products are available:

  • A two-year fixed rate at 3.80%
  • A five-year fixed rate at 3.86%

All four products come with a £495 completion fee, £750 cashback and free standard valuation. The Loan to Income (LTI) ratio is capped at 4.49% and new build flats are not permitted, nor are new build properties in Northern Ireland.

Nicola Alvarez, corporate account manager at Accord Mortgages, said:

We’re delighted to be expanding our new build criteria to 90% LTV as we continue to demonstrate our commitment to providing lending solutions to support brokers and their clients. Being at the forefront of the market with this new range supports our position as a new build lender, not just a lender that does new build.

Accord’s new build expansion to 90% LTV has been welcomed by the UK’s largest housebuilder.

Adrian MacDiarmid, head of mortgage lender relations at Barratt Homes, said:

It is a vital part of a robust housing market that buyers, whether purchasing for the first time, or moving home with access to limited equity, can access homeownership with a reasonable deposit.

With Help to Buy now restricted to first-time buyers and by regional price caps, Accord’s move to support 90% lending on new build houses is particularly welcome, and a testament to their continued support for the housing market generally.
