Society wins national first-time buyer recognition

11th January 2019

Leek United has been named as one of Britain’s best First-Time Buyer Mortgage Providers.

The Society was ‘Highly Commended’ in the prestigious Moneynet* annual Personal Finance Awards for the help it has given to fledgling homebuyers during the last 12 months.

Andrew Hagger, Chair of the Moneynet Judging Panel, said: “Leek United Building Society thoroughly deserves this recognition for consistently offering competitive mortgage deals for first-time buyers.

“Consumers shouldn’t assume that the big banks offer the best mortgage deals as it’s often not the case, with mutuals such as Leek United often giving them a run for their money.”

The Moneynet awards honour the top financial services providers and products over the last 12 months, taking into account a wide variety of providers such as banks, building societies and other lenders.

Leek United’s recognition comes just a month after the Society beat more than 200 other nominees to pick up the title of ‘Best Variable Rate Mortgage Lender’ in The Personal Finance Awards 2018/19.

Lisa Buckley, Head of Marketing and Mortgage Sales, said: “We’ve very pleased to have been Highly Commended in the Moneynet awards. It gets the Society off to a flying start for 2019 and we look forward to continuing to provide all our customers with the best possible products and levels of service.”

*Moneynet is one of the longest-established personal finance information sites in the UK and helps consumers increase their awareness of innovative and market-leading products across the full personal finance spectrum.
