Coventry Building Society

Founded in 1884, Coventry Building Society is currently the second-largest building society in the UK, with total assets of £51 billion. Founded much later than other major building societies, the company was for a long time focused in Coventry, with no branches outside of the city. It then grew gradually after WWII in response to competitors, and it finally became the ‘number two’ building society in the UK mainly through organic growth and some recent acquisitions.

“CBS used a forged mortgage to steal an OAPs home. They refused to show him the unsigned mortgage”

CBS used a forged mortgage to steal an OAPs home. They refused to show him the unsigned mortgage. The Coventry building society's legal team was told twice to stop harrasing the OAPS, by a High Court Judge. The court case caused the OAP to stop eating and taking his medication. He died a scared broken old man. Coventry building society does it really take 10 years to show him the unsigned mortgage he never signed or saw?
