What was the Leeds Building Permanent Building Society?
Formed in 1846 “The Leeds” as it was known, quickly grew in membership to over one thousand people. They were mortgage policy holders and the company enjoyed great success and expanded so much that they moved in 1930.
For over 60 years the company was based at Park Lane, aptly named Permanent House. When Building Societies were given more freedom to offer various other financial services in the mid-80s, “The Leeds” grew further.
It wasn’t until 1995, when the Leeds joined forces with the Halifax that the company no longer traded under the name of the Leeds Permanent Building Society. This is where the confusion starts, in terms of finding out contact details to file a claim of mis-sold PPI.
