1st December 2022

Housing economics is always topical, and the mortgage market is a key one to study. So, who are the UK’s largest suppliers of mortgage finance for would-be home-buyers?

Who are Britain's Biggest Mortgage Lenders?

Lloyds is out in front with 18% of the market but three of the leading UK mortgage lenders are building societies.

Building Societies such as Nationwide and Yorkshire are owned entirely by their members - they do not have shareholders.

Building societies provide a full range of savings, mortgage and insurance products and often compete directly with leading commercial banks.
