Chelsea Building Society

Best known as a provider of savings accounts and mortgages, Chelsea Building Society also offers home insurance.

Founded in 1875, Chelsea Building Society merged with Yorkshire Building Society in 2010. It joined other institutions such as Norwich & Peterborough Building society and Barnsley Building Society under the parent brand.

As a building society, the institution is owned by its members. This means it doesn't answer to shareholders, and in theory should focus on providing its members with great service instead.

Their insurance policies are underwritten and administered by Royal & Sun Alliance.
