The financial benefits of signing up to a Leeds Building Society mortgage have been lauded by a source from the company.

Kim Rebecchi, sales and marketing director at the firm, made her remarks after the brand announced it would alter the terms on its two-year discount deal to become fees-assisted arrangements.

She explained that this means customers can benefit from a free standard valuation worth £335 and will no longer need to pay the £800 completion fee.

The Leeds Building Society mortgage expert suggested the deals could be a good way of minimising costs ahead of the VAT hike in January 2011.

"We are delighted to get 2011 off to a great start by converting our two-year discounts into a New Year sale mortgage range," added Ms Rebecchi.

Last week, the company celebrated handing over a donation of £10,000 to Marie Curie Cancer Care, which was raised by customers forgoing part of their interest over the course of the year.
