Marsden Building Society

Marsden Building Society, having grown steadily since it was established almost a century and a half ago, now offers a strong array of products and services to its members. Some examples are:

  • Mortgages of every flavour, whether tracker, fixed, discounted, or variable rate, and suited to each customers needs. There are options for both existing home owners, whether moving house or changing mortgage providers, as well as first time buyers and those who buy-to-let.
  • Savings options such as instant access, notice, regular saving, and tax-free savings accounts, all open to those in its operational area. Its Rainbow Instant Access account includes several tiers of variable interest, with a higher return when more money is invested.
  • Insurance for home, contents, travel, and Payment Protection to prevent problems with mortgage repayments due to sickness or accident. The Marsden Payment Protection Policy is underwritten by Norwich Union.

Review of Marsden Building Society

Marsden Building Society has a close relationship with the regions it serves, both through its retail network and also its sponsorship and face-to-face sales activities. Based in the North West, it aims to use local suppliers whenever possible and provides jobs for over 150 people. 

Its assets as a business now exceed £310 million. It remains a mutual, run exclusively for the benefit of its members, and reinvests its profits into the business to further that end. Across its services, it now has over 40,000 members.

Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage
