This section provides an introduction to the process of arranging a mortgage, as well as helping you decide which type of mortgage is right for you. It’s written in straightforward language, with the intention of bringing you straightforward facts – that’s the Leeds Building Society way.
There’s even a ‘Jargon-Buster’ section to go through some of the mortgage-related terms that you can’t always avoid!
We will consider a mortgage on most residential properties, however there are some exceptions.
