HBOS appoints eConveyancer to its five brands

HBOS has appointed eConveyancer to supply conveyancing solutions across its five intermediary brands.

eConveyancer was awarded the three-year contract, effective from June, which will see them work with Halifax, Bank of Scotland, BM Solutions, Intelligence Finance and The Mortgage Business.

This will be the first time that one supplier has been appointed across the HBOS five brands.

Nina Morton-Brook, head of legal products at HBOS, says: “Essentially eConveyancer is an online system which enables intermediaries to select and instruct conveyancing on behalf of their clients. The system, which already has a proven track record, is quick and easy to use so intermediaries will receive the high quality service they have come to expect from HBOS.”
