Open Property Data Association appoints LMS’ Chadbourne as exec member
Nick Chadbourne (pictured), chief executive of LMS, has joined the Open Property Data Association (OPDA) as an executive committee member.

The aim of OPDA is to encourage data sharing across the mortgage and property sectors to make the home buying and selling process quicker and more transparent. 

The association is engaging with the government and companies to encourage the adoption of agreed standards. 

Its executive committee has 14 members across the lender, proptech, conveyancing and estate agency sectors. 

Maria Harris, chair of OPDA, said: “The OPDA launched in June this year to transform the way we use data to buy and sell houses. We have been looking for members who understand our vision and who are also passionate about achieving the change we know is possible. LMS has been on its own drive to digitise and change the process for the better, so Nick Chadbourne is a perfect complement to our executive committee.  

“Transforming the property sector through digital thinking and data-led solutions needs influential industry firms to lead the way, so having Nick bring his expertise, knowledge and undoubted influence will be hugely beneficial. 

“Nick will be a valuable addition to a dynamic team that shares the common values of transparency, data quality and innovation. Together, we are driving positive change and intend to create tangible benefits across the whole of the mortgage and property industry.” 

Chadbourne added: “With principles of collaboration, innovation and digital transformation at its core, the OPDA is perfectly aligned with LMS’ vision for the industry. We’re committed to driving positive change and making the entire conveyancing journey efficient and customer centric.  

“This is the key, but it cannot be done without having a fully cohesive data approach. The OPDA will be vital in that. Having been an advocate for such collaboration for so long and putting it at the heart of LMS, I’m delighted to be a founding executive member and look forward to work we can all do together.”
