Leicestershire building society receives self-build mortgage award for fourth year

esbs, or Earl Shilton Building Society, is delighted to have won the Money Pages award for its self-build mortgage offering for the fourth year running.

Voted for by the public, esbs was crowned Best Self-Build Lender in The Money Page’s 26th Annual Personal Finance Awards 2023/24. The Personal Finance Awards have long been recognised as a benchmark for excellence in the UK’s consumer finance market.

esbs prides itself on its “Individual as you” approach to mortgage applications, taking into account a variety of circumstances. The Society can consider mortgages for self-builds to cover land purchases (with planning permission), buying a property to renovate as well as barn conversions, and can support with a remortgage for a self-build project that has already started to help keep progress on track.

esbs can even consider a self-build project where planning permission has been granted and is subject to an agricultural tie clause, or a Section 106 occupancy clause. In addition, for those looking to use Modern Methods of Construction, BOPAS accredited construction can also be considered. Knowing that no two projects are alike, esbs takes every self-build mortgage application on its own merits to make sure that every single customer is treated as an individual.

Paul Tilley, Chief Executive of esbs, said:

“We are sincerely grateful to be recognised by voters of The Money Pages Personal Finance Awards for the fourth time. This achievement is testament to the dedication of our remarkable team and the unwavering trust of our valued customers.”

esbs branches can be found at 22 The Hollow, Earl Shilton or 7 Malt Mill Bank, Barwell. Alternatively, you can call 01455 844422, email, or visit the website at for more information.
