The Beverley Building Society in East Yorkshire is delighted to announce their win of ‘Best local building society’ from the Mortgage Finance Gazette Awards for 2016.
This gets the team at Beverley Building Society off to a great start for the year as it celebrates its 150th Anniversary. An annual programme of forthcoming events and promotional activity involving its members and local businesses will be announced shortly as well as the Society’s main charity partner.
Peter Myers, chief executive of Beverley Building Society, said: “I feel that receiving a national award demonstrates a great achievement by our team and reflects upon our strong independent mutuality with a product range that offers straightforward, value for money, easy to understand products, which are supported by an unrivalled level of personal service.”
“In addition it reflects our ethos which continues to differentiate us from other lenders with a commitment to providing a professional and friendly service to all our customers.
“We have flexible underwriting capabilities and because we are based in the local community we consider each customer on their own merits without using a credit scoring facility, which can often place onerous restrictions on potential home owners and movers.”
“The Judges sought to acknowledge the work and initiatives of lenders and their innovation, use of technology, customer service, community services, arrears management, anti-fraud, conveyancing and legal work.
“Entries were then independently analysed by a financial research company. With all this in mind, it is a fantastic achievement and I am very proud of our team.”
