What kinds of mortgages does Leeds offer?

Many mortgage lenders have significantly cut their offerings this year due to the coronavirus outbreak.

When we checked in September 2020, there were 28 mortgages available from Leeds. All were fixed-rate deals - meaning your interest rate will stay the same for a set initial period.

Leeds' mortgages came with a initial period of either two, five or 10 years.

 

Does Leeds Building Society offer the best mortgage deals?

Our experts analysed hundreds of mortgages over a four-week period in July 2020. They compiled a total of 208 ‘top-10 cheapest deal’ tables based on a variety of borrowing scenarios, and counted how many times each lender featured in a table.

The average number of times a lender made it into a table was 16, but Leeds featured just once - meaning it failed to offer rates as attractive as some of its competitors. (Data source: Moneyfacts.)

In September 2020, the average rate on a two-year fixed-rate mortgage from Leeds was 2.01%, compared to the overall market average of 2.33%.
