How to Apply

Opening an account is easy

Simply download, print and complete the appropriate application form and charitable assignment (please refer to the investment terms and conditions for more information on the charitable assignment).

We may also need to see proof of identification for you as the Society, like all banks and building societies, is legally obliged to obtain proof of identity from all new customers. In addition, existing customers will be asked to provide proof of identification where this has not previously been supplied. This includes proof of name and permanent address.

If you are opening an account for a minor the points below will apply to the minor and each signatory to the account. However, for the minor, under either of the lists B, we can accept identification for a parent/legal guardian who is a signatory rather than for the minor.

Once you have your completed forms and necessary identification, either call into your local branch or agency to open your account, or post your application together with your initial cheque to Melton Mowbray Building Society Principal Office, Leicester Road, Melton Mowbray, Leics., LE13 ODB. Cheques should be made payable in the name of the account holder. If you need any assistance in respect of your application, please do not hesitate to telephone us on 01664 414141.
