• How do I change the name, gender and/or title on my account(s)?

    In most cases, all we’ll need to change the name on your account is a certified copy of a document that confirms your new name. This could be a marriage/civil partnership certificate or a Deed Poll.

    In rare cases we may need to see another document, but we’ll contact you directly to let you know.

    Similarly, we’ll need to see some identification to change the gender on your account. This could be your:

    • Passport
    • Driving license
    • Change of gender deed
    • Letter from a medical practitioner which confirms the change of gender is likely to be permanent
    • Sworn statutory declaration

    You can also show us a Gender Recognition Certificate if you have one, but this is completely optional.

    No documents are needed to change the title on your account.

    You can choose to update your title to your preferred gender. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t had any medical or surgical changes. If you would like a gender-neutral title or identify as non-binary, we can change your title to MX.

    All the above changes can be made in our branches, or you can send a letter to:

    Customer Support - Savings and Mortgages
    Leeds Building Society
    26 Sovereign Street
    Leeds
    West Yorkshire
    LS1 4BJ

    Please include your signature, name, address, account number and certified document copies with your request.
