Why choose us?

Here at Leeds Building Society we’ve been helping people save money and have the home they want for over 140 years. Since the very beginning we’ve been a mutual, owned by and run entirely in the interests of our members – the people who have savings and mortgages with us.

How we do business

Helping you get on with life

Whilst life’s changed a lot since we began in 1875 - one thing’s stayed exactly the same. Our focus is still on what our members need from us.

A big part of that means having a wide and award-winning range of savings accounts and mortgages. Whether you’re just starting out, heading into retirement, or somewhere in between - we’re here for you for life.

But don’t just take our word for it! With a whole host of awards behind us – you can be confident that we’re committed to delivering the best.

Doing business the right way

As well as our products and services, we pride ourselves on doing business in the right way. That means making decisions and acting in ways which protect the long term interests of you, your family, your community, and the environment we all live in and rely on.

After all, we believe that when people help people, good things happen. That’s what makes us a mutual after all. So you can read more about our charity and community work on our website, and our commitment to being a responsible business.

View Mortgages

When it comes to our mortgages, it’s important to remember:

  • Applicants must be aged 18 years or over. Mortgages are subject to eligibility, status and financial standing.
  • Buy to let mortgages which are for business purposes are exempt from FCA rules.
  • If you apply for a mortgage online you won’t receive advice from Leeds Building Society. You’ll need to make your own choice about which mortgage is suitable for you and we won’t assess the suitability of that mortgage to your needs and circumstances. You won’t benefit from the protections offered by an advised service. This is called an execution only transaction. However, if you’d like to receive advice contact us.
