Can Penrith Building Society change the interest rate?

Rates are variable. This means we may increase or decrease the rates at any time. When we increase the rates we will tell you about it by placing notices in our Principal Office, on our website or in the local press within three working days of the change or within 30 days of the change, by letter or other personal notice.


Where the change is a reduction in the interest rate we will give you written notification of the change before it comes into effect.


This does not apply to:


  • interest rate tiers applicable to balances below the minimum operating balance for the account (provided we have clearly told you about the minimum balance requirements); or
  • fixed rate accounts

If your account has a balance of £100 or more at the time the decision is taken to change the interest rate notification will be provided either:


  • at least 14 days before the rate change. You will then have a period of 30 days from the date of notification during which you may close or switch your account without having to give any period of notice or having to lose any interest or pay additional charges; or
  • the notification will be provided at least 14 days plus the period of notice applicable to the account (or 30 days if longer than the notice period) before the rate change. In this case the normal notice period for making withdrawals from or closing the account will apply.

If you do not notify us that you object to a change before the date on which it comes into effect, you will be deemed to have accepted it.


The information on our website will be updated within three working days of an interest rate change.
