Is Leeds and Holbeck Building Society the same as Leeds Building Society?
Moreover, is Leeds Building Society part of any other bank?
Leeds Building Society isn't a bank – we're a mutual, which means we're owned by our members and are run exclusively in their best interests.
Beside above, did Leeds Building Society charge PPI? Although Leeds Building Society hasn't been a huge offender, such as the likes of Lloyds and Santander, it did mis-sell PPI to consumers and is in the process of giving back their money. PPI was commonly mis-sold on mortgages, loans and credit cards.
In this way, what happened to Leeds and Holbeck Building Society?
Leeds & Holbeck will be changing its name to Leeds Building Society following its Annual General Meeting in Leeds earlier today. Over 75,000 members voted and more than 8 out of 10 voters were in favour of the name change to Leeds Building Society, which will take effect later this year.
Who does Leeds Building Society belong to?
And there's never a mention of 'shareholders'. This is because Leeds Building Society is proudly a mutual society. We are owned by our members, the people who have mortgages and savings with us. If you're used to dealing with the banks, this might sound revolutionary, but it's how we've worked for 140 years.
