Conveyancing Sector Enters Price Comparison Market

MoneySuperMarket are set to launch a price and service comparison for the conveyancing sector.

Optimus, the conveyancing panel management business for mortgage brokers, recently announced the collaboration with the price comparison giants.

The partnership will allow MoneySuperMarket access to the panel management service which will enable consumers to view the best rated conveyancers and property solicitors in addition to garnering the fixed rate price conveyancing quotations.

Conveyancers and solicitors were chosen to appear on the panel having adhered to strict service level agreements (SLA) to ensure ‘MoneySuperMarket’s customers receive a fair, transparent and quality conveyancing service, regardless of whether they are buying, selling or mortgaging a property.’

Emma Harvey, Product and Marketing Director at MoneySuperMarket, said:

“We are delighted to partner with Optimus to manage our customers’ conveyancing enquiries.

“It was important to us that our customers have access to a high quality, transparent conveyancing service, with fixed upfront pricing and the solicitors working to agreed SLAs. The Optimus panel management service gives us peace of mind that each conveyancing firm is held to a high standard, meaning the best possible service for our customers.”

Alan Young, Managing Director at Optimus, said:

“We are delighted to partner with MoneySuperMarket – it is a fantastic achievement for our team as we continue to expand our market reach.

“MoneySuperMarket likes the fact that the Optimus’ panel of conveyancers all work from the same pricing model and so business is won on performance and positive feedback, rather than cost.

“This is an innovative approach for MoneySuperMarket, which is traditionally seen as a ‘price comparison website’. The two-step quoting form is easy to complete, and due to excellent relationships with our panel of conveyancers, we are able to service customers quickly and efficiently, which is a huge requirement for anyone looking to purchase or sell a property.”

    Will it also be using Land Registry statistics?

    My sister had to consider shoulder joint replacement and as she knows a thing or two about the health service (60+ years since she started nursing training and time as a theatre sister) set about picking a surgeon using the best available information

    First she went to a NHS web page showing how many such procedures every surgeon in the country had done to judge individual experience. This is equivalent to the number of applications to the Land Registry by conveyancing lawyers but is available broken down into far more useful detail

    Then she took a shortened list to a page showing the numbers of patients of each candidate who needed remedial surgery. Rejections and requisitions perhaps?

    Finally she checked the hospitals from which the short listed candidates practised for their performance in avoiding infection. Fraud avoidance levels? This was particularly important to her as she did her training at Salisbury General where (as video of Yulia Skripal showed) they still pride themselves in discharging patients looking happier than when they went in. (Cf incidence of conveyancing stress)

    There is much work to be done on objective statistics about conveyancing quality to make these useful to clients. I hope that Moneysupermarket will take the lead.
