National Counties announces partnership with LMS

LMS, the leading conveyancing panel management specialist in the UK, has begun its partnership with National Counties Building Society and the Family Building Society.

LMS will provide Panel Link, its unique, market leading panel management service, which will provide all brokers and customers access to a fully vetted, open panel of law firms. This will provide National Counties and Family Building Society customers with a wide and secure choice when selecting their preferred law firm to complete their conveyancing transaction.

National Counties is a successful, independent building society with an emphasis on providing innovative mortgages for first time buyers as well as a range of lending solutions for older borrowers who are often underserved by other mainstream lenders, through its Family Building Society brand. Delivering great value and service to existing and new members is a top priority, something LMS endeavours to help it maintain.

Commenting on the news, Andy Knee, Chief Executive of LMS said:

Our new partnership with Family Building Society and National Counties is another vote of confidence in LMS, our offering and our service, and we are pleased to be strengthening our position in the market. We look forward to continue providing our partners with unparalleled diligence and service and cementing long-term relationships.

Kathy Mendoza, Director of Legal and Compliance, Family Building Society, added:

We look forward to working closely with LMS over the coming months and years. By partnering with LMS we’re able to enhance security and service to our customers, capitalising on LMS’ expertise in the sector, their unparalleled service and experience in working with a range of building societies.
