Accord pledges to continue free legals

Accord Mortgages is offering the choice of free legal assistance or cashback up to £500 to those taking out a residential and buy-to-let remortgage.

Since the start of 2017 on average 80% of Accord’s remortgage residential customers have opted for free legal assistance rather than cashback.

David Robinson, national intermediary sales manager at Accord, said: “We’ve offered both free legal assistance or up to £500 cashback consistently throughout 2017 and will continue giving customers the ability to choose which option is right for them.

“Some borrowers prefer the convenience of someone else arranging a conveyancer, which is demonstrated in the high volume of our customers seeking this option, but others would prefer to source their own.

“Our remortgage range gives borrowers a wide range of products and additional features to choose the mortgage that best meets their individual needs.”
