Notes to Editors

Leeds Building Society has won three awards for innovation so far this year, having been named 'Innovator of the Year' at the Moneywise Magazine Mortgage Awards 2014 for its Welcome Mortgage. This allows borrowers to pay 0% interest for the first few months of their term so they can free up cash to help them settle into their new home.

The Society also scooped the 'Mortgage Innovation Award' and was named 'Most Innovative Personal Finance Provider' at the Moneynet Personal Finance Awards 2014.

Leeds Building Society has 67 branches throughout the UK, Gibraltar and Ireland and assets of £11.2bn (as at 31 December 2013). The Society has operated from the centre of Leeds since 1886.
