Company Overview

X-Press Legal Services is a specialist franchise that provides solicitors and other conveyancing professionals with property searches and reports which are an essential part of the property-buying process in the UK. It is a family firm employing five members of the Lister family in key roles, headed by managing director Lynne Lister, previously editor of a UK franchise magazine for ten years, and husband Dave, from a financial services background. The franchise was launched in 2005 and has a nationwide network.

Franchise Overview

We launched in 2005 and have a network of 38 franchisees throughout England and Wales. The business can be run from home, for minimal overheads. In time franchisees may need to employ staff and an office base may be preferable. Franchisees are from all walks of life and many different former careers. No previous experience is necessary; comprehensive training covers everything, with an exceptional support package. To date the majority of the initial franchisees have re-signed for a further term, with four resales.

Training

Two-week training course at the company’s Warrington head office. The course includes both classroom and in the field training and continues throughout the life of the franchise with refresher and continual development training and support.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

An X-Press Legal franchisee’s day is varied; liaising with solicitor clients, visiting local councils, compiling reports whilst paying close attention to detail and accuracy within a given timeframe. Franchisees will also operate an effective marketing strategy which will include telephone calls, meetings and professional seminars.

Interested in taking on a low-risk business that can be run from home but with plenty of scope to grow into a larger, office-based organisation?

Fancy accessing Institute of Leadership Management training for the life of your business?

Then why not join a family based franchise that offers ongoing sales training in a nurturing environment where franchisees can maintain their independence whilst also feeling part of a larger supported network.

X-Press Legal Services is the leading provider of regulated property searches and reports to solicitors and conveyancing professionals.

Trusted by more than 500 legal practices in England and Wales for 21 years, its independently run businesses deliver over 400,000 regulated searches and reports for UK consumers every year.

Over 50% of current franchisees have been part of the X-Press Legal Services family since the company became a franchise in 2005.

You don’t need to have legal experience to join the leaders in property searches. You just need to be ambitious, tech savvy and have excellent attention to detail.
