Conveyancing giant Myhomemove has bought conveyancing specialist and former HIP provider Easier2Move.

The acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, creates what is thought to be the biggest provider of conveyancing services in the UK. The deal was unrelated to the recent abolition of HIPs.

Easier2move provides panel conveyancing services to the public through estate agents and mortgage brokers.

Myhomemove has its own in-house conveyancing firm, Premier Property Lawyers, and also has a ‘light touch’ panel facility which is used by Team members.

Ian Floyed, CEO of myhomemove, said: “We acquired Easier2move because of its great reputation for providing a quality service and the fact that its service and introducers neatly complement our own.

“Easier2move has some great people and products, and has never been short of ideas. It also has some excellent relationships with quality conveyancing lawyers. We want to share their experience and expertise to continue our combined growth”.

Robin Marcus, the outgoing CEO of Easier2move, will remain for a while as a consultant before moving on to concentrate on other business interests. Director Karen Babington remains with the business.
Marcus said: “Like myhomemove, we have made a benefit of always being staunchly independent, so a deal made sense from the outset. The discussions and negotiations had the feel of an alliance rather than an acquisition.”
Easier2move will continue to trade under its own name and transact business as usual from their office at Southend, Essex. Myhomemove employs nearly 300 staff in Leicester.
