Accord Mortgages has boosted its borrowing options to support more people who have settled in the UK, increasing its maximum LTV for joint applicants where one applicant doesn’t have indefinite leave to remain in the UK, from 75% to 95% LTV. This is in line with Accord’s available LTV to other UK nationals or those who hold ILR for purchase and remortgage. For single or join applicants where neither applicant is a British national or has ILR, the LTV limit of 75% will remain. In order to qualify for these options, applicants must meet all of Accord’s other standard affordability criteria, general policy rules and scorecard requirements.
