Leeds receives successive shared ownership accolades from consumers
Leeds Building Society has been named Best Shared Ownership Mortgage Lender at the 2017 What Mortgage Awards for the second year running.
This year’s event saw the Awards celebrate its 24th year of recognising and rewarding the best businesses in the UK’s mortgage and personal finance markets, as voted for by consumers.
Martese Carton, Leeds Building Society’s Head of Intermediary Distribution, said: “Our aim is to help people save and have the home they want.
“We remain focussed on helping borrowers who are not well served by the wider market, and shared ownership is integral to providing affordable housing.
“To be recognised by What Mortgage as the UK’s best shared ownership mortgage provider for the second time is testament to the success of our lending strategy and the colleagues who bring it to life – making a real difference where it’s needed most.”
Joanne Atkin, Group Editor at What Mortgage, said: “Shared ownership is growing in popularity but there are only a few lenders who cater for this market.
“The What Mortgage Awards are voted for by the general public so this award is a reflection of the service Leeds Building Society provides in helping people get onto the property ladder.”
