Maitland to lead Rightmove float

Rightmove, the website that advertises homes for sale, has hired The Maitland Consultancy ahead of a likely £200m flotation.

Maitland managing partner Neil Bennett is leading financial comms for the firm, owned by HBOS, Countrywide, Skipton Building Society and Royal & SunAlliance.

Rightmove is reportedly seeking a listing to exploit changes in property sale law that will put the onus on sellers rather than buyers to supply surveys. A listing could make it a more credible independent supplier of home information.
