OneMove provides FREE* Home Information Packs (HIPs)

Latest high-profile promotion from OneMove will save house sellers £399* in moving expenses

OneMove (, the free nationwide service that makes moving quicker and easier for both vendors and buyers, has today announced the launch of FREE Home Information Packs (HIPs) to any UK house sellers who instruct a OneMove-approved conveyancer during the month of June 2007*. The free HIP promotion will save sellers £399, the recommended retail price of a standard HIP arranged through OneMove's network of estate agents.

"A free HIP gives OneMove customers an incredible opportunity," says Neil Patel, CEO of OneMove. "HIPs have received a lot of bad press in recent months, but OneMove is here to make the whole HIP issue a lot less painful, by picking up the tab for our customers and giving them one less thing to worry about. With the uncertainty around at the moment regarding HIPs, the one certain thing you know that they are going to cost you money - except with OneMove of course!"

Home Information Packs will become mandatory in the UK from 1st June 2007. At the moment, all HIPs will contain the same compulsory documents (such as copies of the legal title, Local Authority and Water searches, the Energy Performance Certificate and a list of contents), but may also include some optional elements, such as a list of fixtures and fittings included in the sale, guarantees and invoices for alterations and improvements that have been carried out to the property.

The Free HIP promotion comes just one month after the launch of OneMove's Home Buyer's Expense Insurance (HBEI), which helps house buyers to protect the financial risk that has become part and parcel of the house buying process. HBEI helps to alleviate the worry and fear associated with common house buying pitfalls - such as gazumping, leaving buyers safe in the knowledge that they are covered by a reputable provider if anything goes wrong with their purchase.

About OneMove:

OneMove (, a new service created exclusively for home movers and property investors, is designed to keep both buyers and sellers fully up-to-date during the property transaction process. OneMove works by ensuring that all parties involved – including the estate agent, solicitor, mortgage provider and surveyor – are all contacted and 'looped in' with one website logging all progress swiftly and efficiently. In addition, OneMove can also provide home movers with competitive quotes for everything from conveyancing and financial services through to removals specialists and even wills and tax planning, via a portfolio of carefully selected service providers.

House hunters will also benefit from access to OneMove's property "super-portal", an online database that includes all of the properties being offered by OneMove's vast network of agents, as well as most other leading estate agents in England and Wales. Also, unlike other portals which charge estate agents to upload their properties, agents are invited to upload all of their properties free of charge when they join the OneMove network, which means that the property database is growing daily

Customers who go on to use any OneMove service are appointed their very own free Personal Moving Consultant to take care of all the chasing, legalities and logistics. The Personal Moving Consultant acts as a ‘go-between’, keeping all interested parties in the picture and on their toes. The OneMove Update System can even relay the latest developments to a customer's email or mobile phone in real time to keep them up to date.

In addition, customers are given access to the OneMove online Move Management System, enabling them to view the continuous work being carried out on their behalf in a totally secure environment. OneMove can take care of everything from the legal work, to arranging removals and utilities, and can even help to insure your moving expenses with its unique Home Buyers Expense Insurance, which is available exclusively from OneMove.
