Leeds score award hat-trick

The building society, which is the fifth largest in the UK, were awarded for ‘Mortgage Innovation’ and ‘Most Innovative Personal Finance Provider.’

Kim Rebecchi, Leeds Building Society sales and marketing director said: “These prestigious accolades and awards received by the Society provide confirmation that we are delivering on our strategy of supporting a wide range of borrowers and savers, whilst delivering excellent customer service.”

The building society’s ‘Welcome Mortgage’, launched in summer 2013, is thought to be the main reason behind their success.

This enables customers to pay 0% on the first three or six months of their mortgage, while the remaining monthly payments stay at a fixed rate for up to 2, 3 or 5 years

Steve Pavis of Moneynet Ltd said: “Customers are faced with too many below average personal finance products to sift through, but these awards prove that there are still some stand out deals to be had.”
