Please note the following: our affordability calculator will assess affordability of the case purely based on the information you input
• the Society does not use an automated affordability model
• all applications are manually underwritten by our experienced underwriters

• the stated expenditure will be reviewed in conjunction with the bank statements and /or with statistical data as appropriate
• where the stated expenditure  does not reflect that shown on the bank statements or appears otherwise unrealistic you will be asked to submit revised expenditure details

You are strongly recommended to thoroughly verify the stated expenditure as delays may occur or the case may be declined where the information provided is deemed inaccurate.


Residential properties of standard construction in England and Wales, in Scotland the maximum LTV is 75%, either freehold (excludes flats/apartments) or leasehold with a minimum remaining lease term of 85 years at the beginning of the mortgage and 55 years remaining at the end of the term.
The Solicitor should confirm the details of the tenure in writing to the Society prior to completion (including the term remaining on the lease and amount of ground rent payable) and ensure that the Society is adequately protected by the freehold/leasehold arrangements.
The Solicitor is to ensure prior to completion that the Society is not adversely affected by the terms of the lease and also that a covenant is included in the lease whereby the landlord agrees to serve the Society with a copy of any Notice of Breach of Covenant.  In the absence of such a covenant, the Solicitor should ensure that a written notice is served on the freeholder advising him of the Society's interest and the need to notify the Society of any breach of covenant in the lease.
Where the property is a flat/apartment we will require that a suitable lease is in place.  We do not normally accept the following properties:
• Freehold flats
• Ex-local authority flats
• City Centre flats
• Tower Block flats
• Flat roofed properties
• Flats over 4 storeys
• Land for rent
• Properties of non-standard construction
• Properties which fall under ‘House of Multiple Occupation’ legislation
• Commercial properties
• Student letting properties
If you are not sure whether we will consider the type of property in question, please contact Broker Liaison on 0800 22 05 68 or email furness.direct@furness-bs.co.uk

Debt Consolidation

The maximum amount that will be considered for debt consolidation is £30,000.
When the debt being consolidated is over £20,000 or the LTV is greater than 50% we will require a solicitor to take responsibility for repaying the debts.  The Society’s remortgage package is not available for this.  However we will contribute £150 towards the appointed solicitor costs.
This exclusion also includes capital raising when the purpose of the funds is to purchase another property.  We would expect the acting Solicitor to ensure the funds are sent directly to the vendor or creditor.  Again, the Society will contribute £150 to the legal costs.
