Play hard…

Karen likes to keep fit with classes or just walking with friends, alternatively she likes to find a quiet spot with a book and a coffee! She is also trained as a qualified and licensed British Swimming referee and will often be found poolside around the country leading swimming galas.

Work hard…

Karen had previously been the managing partner of her family’s company, a prominent local funeral directors and wanted to continue running her own business. She purchased the X-Press Legal Services franchise in 2007 and expanded her area in 2011.

X-Press Legal Services supplies conveyancers with the complete range of searches and reports needed to complete a property or land purchase and we work with a range of specialist industry organisations.

The focus is on ensuring that X-Press Legal searches are the most thorough and accurate available and these quality data-rich reports are backed by our highly professional approach and personal customer service. We have recently invested significantly in our IT infrastructure allowing us to offer our customers full integration with our systems providing an extremely efficient work flow whilst still providing the human touch.

Our approach is to work with our clients rather than just for them, so we have several initiatives to help them boost their businesses. These include the innovative website which we widely publicise and provides free advertising to our clients.

X-Press Legal Services aims to set the gold standard in searches. If you want the best possible searches on your property purchase, ask your conveyancer to purchase an X-Press Legal search.
