Who we are
Simplify was created in March 2019 by the combination of the two largest players in the UK conveyancing industry – My Home Move and The Simplify Group. Simplify is now the UK’s leading conveyancing business, incorporating many of the fastest growing, most innovative brands within the property market.
Transaction times across the industry have lengthened as a result of the industry adjusting to new, and often remote, ways of working, pent up demand from earlier in the year and increased demand from the Land Tax holiday. This has impacted mortgage lenders, valuers, local authorities, conveyancers and other businesses involved in housing transactions.
As market leaders, we are working hard to get both the British and Welsh Governments to consider extending the current Land Tax holiday deadlines of 31st March 2021. In the meantime, we will of course try to complete existing transactions before then where possible, but we cannot guarantee this given the reliance on other parties and current transaction times. We continue to work hard to support all of our clients with their transactions.
Existing clients ‘please help us to help you’ - If you are using our online case management service, eWay, please continue to do so or alternatively, please communicate with us by email where possible and allow time for a response. Due to the high levels - of activity, we will contact you when it is appropriate to do so and will prioritise the most urgent transactions. To help transactions progress as quickly as possible please complete any requested or outstanding activities as soon as you are able to do so.
We remain open for business in line with the housing market. Our priority is to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the house moving process. Whilst the business is very much open for business many members of staff now work from home - please note visits to our offices should only be by prior appointment.
Simplify is the UK's largest conveyancing group and includes Advantage Property Lawyers, Cook Taylor Woodhouse, DC Law, GB Law, JS Law, and Premier Property Lawyers.
