About Us

Welcome to the Teachers Building Society website for mortgage intermediaries who are part of the Mortgage Intelligence, Mortgage Next and Personal Touch networks, Legal & General Mortgage Club, Threshold Mortgages, Just Mortgages, Sesame / PMS and TMA.

Teachers Building Society was founded in 1966 to help teachers onto the property ladder. Today, we specialise in lending to those working in the education sector but have broadened the availability of our mortgage service to people of any profession. 

What makes us different is that we can help when others won't; our underwriting is bespoke and designed around our understanding of the working hours, pay system and employment contracts of teachers.

  • We are proud to provide a truly personal service. This is why your call will always get straight through to a member of our friendly intermediary support team. 
  • We are committed to helping first-time buyers and have a long history of supporting the government's affordable home ownership schemes, such as Help to Buy and Shared Ownership.
  • We are a mutual organisation run for the benefit of our members, not shareholders. This means that instead of having to pay dividends to shareholders, we can offer great deals to both our mortgage and savings customers.
  • We frequently achieve recognition for the quality of customer care we provide, with recent accolades including being nominated for 'Best Local Building Society' for 5 years in a row at the What Mortgage Awards, finalists in the 2015 Rock Awards and finalists in the Moneyfacts’ Regional Lending Provider of the Year. 

Our Service

We offer an award-winning online application portal which has been built around providing a quick and smooth user experience for intermediaries. The system ensures that intermediaries are kept up-to-date at all stages of their client's application with automated emails and online updates informing them of any changes to their case's status. If you haven't already registered, you can do so today and receive an activation email immediately.
