The agreement between MoneySuperMarket and conveyancing panel management specialist Optimus has been extended by a further three years.

In addition to providing panel management services for MoneySuperMarket’s conveyancing channel, Optimus will now deliver and manage a new home survey service, where customers will be able to access a range of professional surveys so they can assess the condition of a property prior to purchase.

Optimus, which is part of Landmark Information Group, will also now support the quotation process for both the conveyancing and survey needs for MoneySuperMarket’s customers.

The new property survey service will be launching on the MoneySuperMarket website before the end of the year.

Emma Harvey, product and marketing director at MoneySuperMarket, said: “Since we launched Optimus’ conveyancing quotation service for MSM customers in 2019, we have been really happy with the service provided to our customers. Particularly considering the difficulties that 2020 has presented in the housing market.

“So we are delighted to extend our partnership for a further three years.

“The breadth of expertise Optimus has across its business and with its parent company, Landmark Information Group, also makes them ideally placed to support our new home survey service, launching later this year.

“On our mission to digitise mortgages, we want to make it as easy as possible for customers to access the right services, at the right time and at the right price, so it’s great to work with Optimus, who are able to offer MSM customers with access to conveyancing and home surveys, which can often be difficult steps for consumers to navigate on their mortgage journey.”

Alan Young, managing director at Optimus, added: “We are delighted that MoneySuperMarket has not only extended our existing agreement to manage its conveyancing quotation service for a further three years, but that we have been selected to support them in the expansion of its range of services for homebuyers and owners.

“We look forward to continuing our working partnership with the team into the future.”
