Solicitors Panel Application

Furness Building Society has a panel of solicitors who are approved to act in the provision of mortgage lending. If you’re not already an active member of the panel and you are looking to apply, the criteria and process for application is as follows:

The firm must be registered with the relevant Law Society and have approved persons in the following categories

• 2 SRA approved managers (England)
• 2 Scottish Partners (Scotland)
• 2 CLC Licence Holders (England)

If the Solicitors firm does not have at least 2 qualified persons we will not be able to approve the panel application and an alternative solicitor will have to be selected to facilitate the mortgage.
