Harpenden Building Society joins LMS Panel Link

Today, LMS, the UK’s leading conveyancing services provider, announces that Harpenden Building Society has chosen LMS Panel Link to drive efficiencies in the conveyancing process.

LMS Panel Link is a robust service designed to connect mortgage lenders with law firms that meet specific quality, security and compliance criteria. LMS provides a fully vetted panel that meets the lender’s exact requirements with additional functionality to protect its borrowers from potential fraud. 

 Harpenden Building Society has been enabling its members to buy their own home for more than 70 years. The Society was founded on the basis that its primary goal is to serve the community and put its customers at the heart of all operations. The move to LMS Panel Link aligns with this core mission, ensuring that customers are protected through the home-buying journey, by enabling access to a fully vetted panel of conveyancing firms, as well as LMS’s bespoke anti-fraud tools. 

Harpenden Building Society will also be utilising LMS SecureLink to reduce post-offer conveyancing queries and to enable automated and secure messaging with their panel of law firms. SecureLink is proven to reduce law firm communications into lender teams by up to 70%, with agreed FAQ’s designed to instantly answer queries without having to escalate to the lender.

Harpenden Building Society will also benefit from LMS’s recently enhanced Charge Registration Service, providing real-time updates on the position of applications at HMLR and tracking all cases through to registration. 

The partnership shows LMS’ continued commitment to collaboration within the Building Society sector.
