My Home Move acquires Advantage Property Lawyers

Advantage Property Lawyers has been acquired by My Home Move.

Well known as the country’s largest independent provider of mover conveyancing services, My Home Move has now acquired Leeds-based Advantage Property Lawyers (APL). Having also received high praise within the industry, APL is recognised for its high-quality service and has numerous industry awards to demonstrate its achievements.

With the potential to deliver up to 100,000 completions each year, the businesses will together employ almost 1,000 people.

Commenting on the acquisition was Doug Crawford. The CEO of My Home Move commented on the relationship between the two firms and how their individual strengths can be brought together to benefit them both.

“We acquired APL because of their size, reputation and long-standing relationships with a number of significant introducers, which will complement our own strengths. This acquisition will enable My Home Move to support APL’s continued growth over the next few years as well as provide the opportunity for both organisations to share ideas and best practice as we grow together.

“APL is a superb brand managed by a strong team who I look forward to working alongside as we continue to revolutionise the customer experience of conveyancing through further investment in people, processes and innovative technology.”

Established nine years ago in Leeds, APL’s values have been likened to those of My Home Move. Using a customer-centred approach, the firm has grown to become the UK’s sixth biggest conveyancing firm, completing a monthly total of 900 sale and purchase transactions. Through its Panel Management service, My Home Move has worked parallel to APL for several years and is familiar with its approach to conveyancing as well as the people and practices of the firm.

Expressing his enthusiasm for the development was Stephen Coupland. The Head of Sales and Marketing at APL stated, “We are delighted to have joined the My Home Move family, a change that will allow us to continue our growth in Leeds while, over time, building on our existing approach to tap in to some of the exceptional technology platforms that My Home Move has built for its clients and Introducers.

“Above all, My Home Move and Advantage share a passion for efficient, client delighting conveyancing and we look forward to playing our part in the continued growth and success of the combined business.”
