Accord Buy To Let has increased the maximum loan-to-value (LTV) for remortgage customers to 75%, and reintroduced house purchase products up to 75% LTV.

For landlords looking to remortgage, the available range of products includes a 2-year fixed rate at 1.84% at 75% LTV, and a 5-year fixed rate at 2.16% at 75% LTV.

Both of these products include a £1,495 product fee, free standard valuation and either £250 cashback or free standard legal services.

For landlords wanting to purchase, products include a 2-year fixed rate at 1.71% at 60% LTV with £950 product fee, and a 5-year fixed rate at 1.81% at 60% LTV with £1,495 product fee.

Both of these products include free standard valuation and £500 cashback.

Where possible, physical valuations will be carried out on all house purchase and remortgage applications.

For the time being, the intermediary lender will only be able to lend where at least one applicant owns an existing buy-to-let (BTL) property.

Jeremy Duncombe (pictured), director of intermediary distribution at Accord Mortgages, said: “Further to the residential changes announced earlier this week, we are pleased to offer landlords a broader range of options by relaunching house purchase products for Accord Buy To Let and increasing our maximum LTV for remortgages.

“This marks another positive milestone in getting our product offering back to where it was before the lockdown started.

“We have a strong appetite to lend, and we hope to continue updating our criteria and product ranges as the market allows.

“In the meantime, our residential and BTL ranges offer great choice to brokers in the current environment.”

Skipton International returns to the UK buy-to-let remortgage market

Following the Government’s unlocking of the mortgage market last week, Skipton International has returned to remortgage lending for overseas residents wishing to buy property in the UK.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions preventing physical property valuations, Skipton International had previously stopped accepting mortgage applications.

Skipton International will initially be accepting applications for remortgages only, with a maximum loan to value of 60%.

Roger Hughes, business development manager at Skipton, said: “Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic we were seeing strong demand from overseas residents for our UK buy-to-let mortgages.

“We hope our return to the remortgage market will provide an attractive offering for investors and demonstrate that Skipton is still very much open for business.”

Skipton is monitoring developments and the availability of valuations with an expectation of offering mortgages for UK BTL purchases in the near future.
