The UK's second largest building society, Bradford & Bingley, has teamed with Dixons-owned ISP FreeServe to launch an online property service offering access to a database of estate agencies, mortgages and independent financial advice.

The service will be available to Freeserve's 3.4 million users this autumn.

Meantime, Bradford & Bingley's 2.6 million members will vote next week on whether the building society should retain its mutual status or seek a public listing.
