Harpenden Building Society has won the ‘Best Local Building Society’ category at the prestigious What Mortgage Awards for a 5th year running.

The Society, with a branch in Wendover, has a long standing reputation for providing mortgages tailored to the requirements of the customer.

A number of qualities contributed to the Society’s recognition as an award winning mortgage lender and helped their entry stand out from others across the UK.

Harpenden’s mortgages are individually underwritten with specialist staff getting to completely understand the specific needs of the customer. The Society has a policy of lending to people in different types of employment and considers many income sources when determining mortgage affordability. Their expert team are also experienced at finding solutions to complex lending scenarios.

This distinctive approach has enabled a number of people, both locally and nationally, to find the exact mortgage to meet their individual circumstance and move into their dream homes, with the Society’s lending increasing 7.3% over the last year.

Harpenden’s range of owner occupied lending products provide options for Residential, Guarantor, Self-Employed and Contractor mortgages.  A specialist product range also supports lending for Self-Build mortgages, Second Homes, Holiday-let, Buy To Let, Consumer Buy To Let and Bridging facilities.

Ken Hale, Head of Lending at Harpenden Building Society said: “We’re proud and honoured to be named as the UK’s ‘Best Local Building Society’ once again. Supporting our community is one of our top priorities so winning this category for an unprecedented 5 years means a great deal to us.”
