New brand for ONP Group

ONP Group has announced a new umbrella brand for it’s seven business identities encompassing legal services, panel management, and legal-tech. ONP Solicitors, Cavendish Legal Group (CLG), Grindeys Conveyancing, LMS, Conveyancing Alliance (CAL), Broker Conveyancing, and Lavatech, creator of inCase will all fall under a new “Movera” brand announced to staff and partners this week. 

The group, which says it is involved in c.300,000 home moving transactions each year, alongside 125,000 remortgage transaction, says the brand represents a “progressive group of home moving businesses with years of experience and trust.” Each company will continue to operate independently but will be enabled and supported by Movera and its platform.

Speaking at a launch event in Manchester this week CEO Nick Hale said until now the group had been “hiding in plain sight,” pointing to it’s work to reduce completion time for remortgages by 18 days;  working with Land Registry piloting the automated submission of applications; leveraging group resources to speed up remortgaging transactions with LMS’s Decision and Automated Remortgaging Technology (DART); and improving the Net Promoter Score (NPS) and TrustPilot ratings for its conveyancing business from 4 to 4.7.

“With our ethos of focusing on brilliant people, innovative technology and having an explorer mindset, we aim to make home moving a more positive experience. Our ambition is to create experiences which can be celebrated not just tolerated. With the launch of Movera, we commit to work with our partners ever more closely and welcome the industry joining with us to help make that happen.

“We continually look to explore new opportunities and want to take everyone with us. We know we don’t have all the answers, so we want to work with the people around us to lift the industry for the better – for clients, for partners and for our people who help make all of this happen. In a complex market, we will work more closely than ever with others to solve bigger pain points and ultimately grow value for everyone in the sector.

“Most importantly we want to improve things for home owners. We believe that buying a home, or even remortgaging, is all about experience, not just about a transaction. It needs to be enabled by people who feel good about what they do.”

ONP Group is backed by private equity group Inflexion who first invested in 2019, adding Cavendish Legal, Conveyancing Alliance and InCase to it’s portfolio throughout the course of 2019 and 2020
