LSL has doubled staff numbers in its part-exchange business, saying that both part-exchange and assisted move schemes are becoming more widespread.
It has also relocated the entire LSL Land & New Homes division to a business park in Nottingham, offering part exchange and assisted services to developers, working alongside estate agents across the UK, including those not directly associated with LSL.
Helen Buck, LSL executive director for estate agents, said: “Whilst our clients already benefit from our association with a UK-wide network of estate agency brands, to support them in finding buyers, as well as our association with service providers such as e.surv chartered surveyors, we appreciate that speed and efficiency of handling client applications is key.
“In response we have invested in new premises, increased staff numbers and will shortly introduce a new IT infrastructure to help our clients further and ensure that they in turn can respond to their customers’ needs faster.
“It heralds a new phase in our development and demonstrates our determination to make our part-exchange hub the ‘go to’ place for house builders who are looking for part-exchange and assisted move support.”
