myhomemove confirmed as largest UK conveyancer by HMLR

myhomemove has confirmed that based on HMLR data, they completed more purchase conveyancing cases than any other UK conveyancer in 2012.

Despite the continued uncertainty about housing market transaction volumes, myhomemove is already making progress towards a target to treble in size by 2016, by winning a number of significant new introducers in early 2013 on the back of glowing recommendations from clients and other introducers. A recruitment campaign is well underway to employ a further 60 staff this year, adding to an already established team of over 400.

To add to the organisations recent success myhomemove has also been awarded ‘Best Conveyancing Service’ at the recent Mortgage Strategy Awards dinner. This adds to a number of other high profile awards during 2012.

Doug Crawford, Chief Executive, speaking at the opening of a new dedicated myhomemove training academy in Leicester, commented “2012 was a phenomenal year for myhomemove; we smashed all previous targets for completions and profit and also laid the foundations for the next phase of the business. Our plans for growth are going to challenge the status quo in conveyancing with even greater focus on putting our customers at the heart of what we do by delivering a trusted, values-based service. Having completed over 100,000 mover cases since the credit crunch, it’s refreshing that so many Solicitors, Conveyancers and other staff are keen to join what they often describe as the ‘future of conveyancing’.”

Along with plans to recruit a further 60 employees, myhomemove has also further strengthened its senior team with the appointment in February of Jane Connor as HR Director.

Jane’s appointment follows the appointment of Dev Malle as Group Sales Director in November 2012 and the creation of a new role for Mark Montgomery as Customer Strategy and Marketing Director.

Dev Malle, Group Sales Director added, “Whilst we are already a major player with partnerships with the largest estate agents and mortgage brokers we have now launched or are in the process of launching with the major networks and distribution hubs in the mortgage market and see significant growth opportunities through our multi-channel offering. Since joining I am somewhat amazed that the fantastic proposition delivered through our people, service and technology has not been offered to a wider audience. It will now.”
