National Counties Building Society – UK Mortgage Lender
The Fourth Post Office Mutual Building Society, the original forerunner of the National Counties Building Society was founded in 1896 in Newgate Street, London. Originally, membership was restricted to Post Office staff only. In 1965, the society renamed itself to become the National
Post Office Building Society and in 1966 moved its head office to Epsom in Surrey. The society pioneered savings accounts by post, which were then offered to the general public, not just to Post Office employees. Following these changes to the way that it was operating, the society once again changed its name, to the National Counties Building Society, in 1972. The society is now the 22nd largest building society in the UK.
The National Counties Building Society has two offices, both in Epsom, and also markets financial services online and by post.
