Searching for success in the property sector?

Look no further than an X-Press Legal Services franchise

Throughout an unusual year for many sectors, the property market has been booming and so has X-Press Legal Services.

The largest independent property search provider has just finished its best year on record, continuing to provide expert searches and reports to the conveyancing sector throughout the pandemic and helping to keep the market moving.

The company’s 27 locally owned franchise offices across England and Wales play a key role in the conveyancing process. They complete property searches that are required for every property transaction, letting franchisees benefit from a recession-proof model.

X-Press is continuing to grow, having welcomed three new franchisees to its network throughout the past year

Supported by a head office in Warrington, franchisees join a network that’s established a reputation as a trusted name in the conveyancing sector.

Quality and trust

Truly a family business at heart, X-Press was established in 1998 by the Lister family, who still heads up the business today.

Since franchising their successful business in 2006, they’ve continued to run their own franchise office, while supporting the network - helping them to fully understand the experience of their network.

The family feel runs throughout the network, with franchisees benefiting from strong peer support that helps them learn, network and grow their businesses.

More than half of X-Press franchisees have been with the company since day one, testament to the strength of the company’s franchise support and demand for its services.

Franchisees pride themselves on delivering a high level of customer service to their clients.

Through prioritising client satisfaction, owners build long-lasting, personal relationships with clients - becoming integral members of their teams and ensuring repeat, regular custom.

Ongoing innovation

X-Press is continually innovating the range of products it offers to clients to move with changes in the market.

With a complete range of products and an online ordering platform, franchisees can offer their clients an end-to-end service - staying ahead of their competitors.

Throughout the pandemic, the company has invested heavily, ensuring complete data security online and forging industry-leading partnerships with FormEvo, Thirdfort and, as well as becoming the first property search company to be Cyber Essentials Plus accredited.

Great work-life balance

As a stable business opportunity that can be run from home with minimal overheads, X-Press provides a perfect model for those looking for a better work-life balance.

You don’t need legal experience, as all training will be provided. However, you must be computer savvy and have a keen eye for detail, as the reports you provide are legal documents.

X-Press has a number of franchise territories available, including in the north east, Dorset, Kent and Surrey.

Among its available territories are a handful of resale opportunities, where owners who are ready to retire are selling their established, successful businesses.
