X-Press Legal Services goes from strength to strength

The West & South Yorkshire franchise office of X-Press Legal Services is celebrating growth in the business with an office move and the addition of a new member of staff.

Following the strict lockdown of the Covid-19 crisis, franchise owners and sisters Helen Foster and Claire Ide, have seen a sharp rise in the number of property searches undertaken by their local conveyancing firms. To support this growth, the company has relocated to new offices based at the historic Grade II listed Britannia Buildings in Briggate, Elland.

X-Press Legal Services provides solicitors and conveyancing professionals with a complete range of property searches and reports an essential part of the property transaction process, related to local authority, property and environmental issues.

Claire explains:

“We feel really fortunate during current times to have been able to continue trading, and to have just had our busiest ever month where we saw an increase in orders for search reports of 50% month on month. This shows that home buyers have definitely bounced back with confidence. We are so proud to have moved into the magnificent Britannia building which is such an iconic property for so many in the area.”

The franchise company provides exceptional support for its franchisees and has continued to innovate their offering during the Covid-19 crisis with the introduction of additional online facilities including new insurance and security features to enhance their suite of digital data services. This has created a new position and the appointment of Aaron Jugroop who joins the Briggate team in the marketing department.

“I am delighted to welcome Aaron on board who will be supporting us with moving the business forward, as more and more of our services are now being provided on digital platforms, especially now that many firms are continuing to work remotely.”
