X-Press Legal Services

Searching for a franchise?

Take control of your future with X-Press Legal Services

Delivering over 400,000 property searches and reports per year to the conveyancing sector, X-Press Legal Services is trusted by more than 500 legal practices nationwide to perform an essential role in the property buying process.

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 large, office-based organisation.

Although you’ll work with legal professionals, you don’t need legal qualifications. Training, certified by the Institute of Leadership Management, is provided for the life of the business.
Over half of current franchisees have been part of the X-Press Legal Services family since the company became a franchise in 2005.

The X-Press Legal Services family
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, X-Press Legal really is a family affair.
Five members of the Lister family maintain key roles in the organisation, which operates an ‘open door’ policy for staff, franchisees and suppliers.
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.

Market opportunity
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.
