The Moving Hub, a leading conveyancing platform and case management system, has recruited three national BDM’s and formed a specialist in-house legal advice team of ex-conveyancers and paralegals to reflect a 400% growth in intermediary and estate agent engagement over the past six months.
The growth of this support team is a result of a significant uplift in the number of intermediaries and estate agents using the Moving Hub platform for their conveyancing and survey requirements over the course of 2019.
In another positive trend, the completion time on instructions via The Moving Hub platform is also, on average, one week quicker than the national average for a Sale and Purchase instruction.
The Moving Hub is a conveyancing platform designed to help introducers such as mortgage intermediaries, financial advisers and estate agents connect to one of the largest panel of vetted solicitors across England and Wales. It is the first conveyancing platform to offer referral fees up front rather than on completion and is the first to consider the case capacity of each solicitor on the network so as not to overload and affect the quality of service.
Peter Joseph, CEO at The Moving Hub, commented: “Our growth over the past six months has exceeded our expectations, despite operating in what remains a challenging housing market. It’s clear that intermediaries and estate agents are recognising the benefits attached to technology and are realising the value of working with tech partners who can save them time, better support their service standards/client expectations and generate additional income.
“With our platform allowing so much of the conveyancing process to be done online, we are seeing completion times way below the UK average, especially on remortgages which are being concluded in days rather than weeks. This message is spreading across the industry and we have even more expansion plans in the pipeline to support this business growth, so watch this space.”
