Comment

Jeremy Wood, chief executive of the Dudley Building Society, commented: “The Dudley is nothing if not innovative in its approach to lending and this is a niche which our research told us was under represented.

“We believe it is important to support customers who, by occupying these culturally important properties, are helping to keep alive vital parts of our shared heritage. The products we have designed are made more attractive as the discount on the rate we offer extends to the end of the mortgage.”

Rob Killeen, business manager at Capital Fortune, said: “This new listed property product launch is yet further testament to the society’s innovation and success.

“Whilst enabling a great many people to own and refinance historically important buildings, its virtues are firmly rooted at the heart of what Dudley does best – standing proud for the traditions and local communities for whom it was formed originally.”
