Resilient to economic fluctuations, an X-Press Legal Services franchise is a low risk business that can be run from home with modest overheads and plenty of scope to grow into a larger, office-based organisation. No legal background is required. Training, certified by the Institute of Leadership Management, is provided for the life of the business.
Over 50% of current franchisees have been part of the X-Press Legal Services family since the company became a franchise in 2005.
The company was established in 1998 by Lynne Lister, former editor of a leading UK franchise magazine and her husband Dave Lister who has a financial services background and their son Christian.
On-going sales support, mentoring and the X-Press Academy training programme create a nurturing environment, where franchisees are able to maintain their independence while also feeling part of a larger network.
The specialist searches and reports produced by X-Press Legal Services are essential components of the conveyancing process. They are integral to property sales and property developments, as well as remortgages and repossessions, so whatever the state of the property market, franchisees benefit from regular, repeat business.
Almost exclusively, X-Press Legal Services clients are legal professionals, so franchisees are able to develop lasting relationships with long-term clients who come to rely on them. A healthy business needs around 10-20 clients, made up of solicitors and conveyancers.
We provide solicitors and other conveyancing professionals with specialist property searches and reports. These include:
Some or all of these searches are required as part of every residential and commercial property transaction, ensuring X-Press Legal Services franchisees regular, repeat business.
Day to day, franchisees nurture their relationships with legal clients and local councils, compile accurate reports and implement their marketing strategy. Support is always available from head office and franchise network of owners.
X-Press Legal Services franchisees receive exclusive rights to a territory in either England or Wales. Territories correspond to local authority areas and are always locations where we have identified real potential. Territories currently available include:
Whatever your background, you can make a success of an X-Press Legal Services franchise.
