About us

The Melton is a modern, mutual building society that has been serving the people of Melton Mowbray and the surrounding area since 1875.

We’re here to help you buy your own home, make the most of your savings and help you find independent personal financial advice. With 40,000 members, we have a reputation for being a trusted provider of mortgages and savings.

Commitment to mutuality

Our success is built on being an independent, mutual society, that places customers (or members) at the heart of everything we do. Being a mutual means we don’t have to pay shareholders dividends. So we can share the results of our success with our members through higher interest rates for savers, lower rates for borrowers and providing better services.

This also means contributing to the communities we serve, including supporting local charities not only financially but voluntarily with our time, experience and knowledge. Find out more

Commitment to our customers

Our roots and heritage are firmly in the Melton Mowbray area and our 5 local branches – Melton, Grantham, Oakham, Stamford and Bourne – provide a level of customer service you would expect of a community-based building society. It’s also very easy to do business with us over the telephone, online and through mortgage intermediaries. Our customer advisors are here to help from 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 12pm on Saturday.

If you think we have not lived up to our values, please call 01664 414141.
