Myhomemove has record month for completions in August

Coveyancing services provider myhomemove completed more transactions in August than in any other month since the firm was founded.

Last month, the conveyancer completed 3,938 cases, a 35 per cent increase on the 2,910 cases completed in August 2012, the previous peak.

The company, which began trading in 2002, says its average monthly completion rate is around 2,500 cases and says it completed almost 30,000 cases in the whole of 2012.

It aims to treble the number of cases it completes each year to 100,000 within the next three years.

Chief executive Doug Crawford says: “August has proved a phenomenal month for myhomemove, allowing us to break our own internal records and exceed everyone’s expectations.

This outcome is a combination of the improving housing market, thanks in part to the Government’s Help to Buy and Funding for Lending schemes, and myhomemove’s ability to handle large case volumes with exceptional service and attention to detail.”
