We are an independent building society that strives to create a feeling of pride amongst our staff, our members and our local communities through the work we do. We are passionate about sharing our knowledge, expertise, physical and online resources for mutual benefit which helps our focus of remaining a regional building society dedicated to making a genuine difference to the communities we serve.

What makes us different?

At DBS we take a personal approach to mortgage underwriting which means we assess each individual case personally rather than using an automated credit scoring system. You can always contact us personally and there will of course be situations where we can’t help but it is always worth the call and we will try our best.  It may be something which is slightly outside our lending criteria but because we review each case individually we would be happy to consider it.

We will also consider:

  • Joint Borrower/sole proprietor – residential/BTL
  • 4 Incomes and 4 applicants on an application
  • Individuals paid in foreign currency up to a maximum of 75% loan to value (specific currencies apply), able to proceed with 1 UK resident and 1 non-UK resident.
