Product Transfers for Existing Customers

Switching your customer to another Furness mortgage

If your client’s mortgage is coming to an end, you can transfer to a new product quickly and easily with us. 

 

Benefits for you and your clients:

  • Earn a procuration fee
  • Competitive products for your client 
  • No valuation, we’ll use the UK House Price Index (HPI)
  • No credit checks required for product transfers
  • ESIS issues within 2 working days

Step 1

A maturity information pack is sent to customers 3 months before their existing mortgage product is due to expire.

Step 2

The customer's information pack contains their mortgage account number and a unique switch number. You’ll need these to submit a product transfer request.

Step 3

Once the customer has requested that you carry out the product transfer on their behalf, you can log onto the online mortgage application system. Register Now

Step 4

Once logged into the system, select "Product Transfer" and follow the simple steps. Once we've received your request we'll issue an ESIS within 2 working days. 

Step 5

The ESIS and Mortgage Offer will be emailed (and posted if required) to both yourself and the customer – the offer requires the customer’s signature. 

Step 6

The signed Mortgage Offer needs to be returned to us either by post or e-mail to switch.mortgage@furness-bs.co.uk

Step 7

The product transfer will take place on the maturity of the existing mortgage deal and you'll receive notification that this has completed.

Step 8 

You'll receive payment for the product transfer 10 days following completion. This is usually by electronic payment but, in some cases, a cheque will be issued.
