The owner of a property search company said she is "delighted" to see the firm celebrate its 25th year in business.

X-Press Legal Services supports conveyancing professionals across the Thames Valley.

Thames Valley owner Karen Underwood said: "We are delighted to be celebrating 25 years of X-Press Legal Services.

"We are proud to have brought X-Press to Thames Valley and are planning to celebrate by giving back to local charities and grassroots organisations over the coming months."

She added: "The conveyancing process has advanced hugely over recent years and we have supported many local firms through complex changes such as digitalisation."

The company said its "independent local team is committed to exceeding client expectations, becoming a trusted and invaluable property partner".

Ms Underwood continued: "A typical property transaction now involves several financial and identity checks for each party and we are consistently delivering the best conveyancing products and software to protect our clients and their customers.

"We’ve had an incredibly busy start to 2024, supporting our growing client base.

"We expect the volume of property transactions to increase further over the coming weeks as we head towards Summer and more buyers and sellers come to market.

"With competitive mortgage deals making a return, it’s looking likely that 2024 will be a very positive year for Thames Valley and, of course, our hardworking local conveyancers.”
