The society was founded as the Leeds and Holbeck (Permanent) Building Society in 1875, though the society originated from a group called the Leeds Union Operative Land and Building Society which formed in 1845.

The society was renamed to Leeds Building Society in September 2005. It has 65 branches across the UK, with 29 located in Yorkshire and is now the UKs 5th largest building society.

The Leeds offers a range of 2-year fixed rate RIO mortgages, with or without product fees and one offers a cashback of up to £500.

To be eligible you must be a homeowner aged 55+ and the maximum age you can borrow from is 80. The society will lend up to 55% of the value of the property (LTV) and you can use a RIO to buy a new home or remortgage.

Leeds will access both your income and expenditure when deciding on how much it will lend you.
