MyHomeMove launches white label service

MyHomeMove Conveyancing has made it even easier for estate agents and IFAs to add value to their customer proposition.

Property businesses can now brand and sell the MyHomeMove service under their own name enabling them to provide a fully automated, customer-centric conveyancing service but without the burden of running the operation themselves.

Fees are guaranteed in writing up front and home movers benefit from the promise of &#39no move, no legal fee&#39, if the transaction doesn&#39t go ahead. Information systems, operated by teams of legal experts, ensure that the home mover knows everything they need to know about their move at any time of the day or night. Clients are able to either contact the Operations Centre or use the secure website to check on the progress of their conveyance.

David Harbour, sales director for MyHomeMove Conveyancing says: “In essence we are enabling these businesses to take our product, re-brand it and sell it as their own. We will continue to do all the work in the normal way behind the scenes, but as far as the customer is concerned, this is a service from their estate agent or IFA.

“It means these businesses have all the advantages of offering a value added service without the burden of managing this aspect of the business themselves.”
