Pali (Property and Land Information) Franchise Opportunities

About Us

Pali offer conveyancing searches to solicitors through our 'one stop shop' online facility,
A lot of people think Pali offer conveyancing when in fact we are a specialist conveyancing search company. Pali mainly deal with conveyancing solicitors and related businesses. 

Part of the conveyancing process requires solicitors to obtain property searches such as Local Authority Searches, Drainage and Water Searches, Environmental Searches, etc. Solicitors can either obtain these searches direct from the Local Authorities/Water Companies, etc or they can use a private company, like Pali who are able to compile and purchase the requested searches via our website and return them without the hassle or ordering from separate companies. 

Each Local Authority has a different system has a different payment structure and a lot of the time they are more expensive and take longer to complete their reports. Pali is the solution to all these problems with one website where all conveyancing searches can be ordered and invoiced. This saves the solicitor a lot of time and effort.

The Pali website acts as an online ordering system so our clients can log in and place their orders. It is extremely sophisticated and user-friendly and only takes a matter of minutes to place an order. There are literally dozens of benefits that come with using the Pali online system and we have many benefits over other search companies too which will be discussed over the phone or at a meeting. 

Pali also offer Energy Performance Certificates which members of the public need to obtain in order to market their house for sale or rent. Therefore when it comes to that aspect, Pali will deal with the public and Estate Agents but selling searches to solicitors is our main business. 

One way that Pali stay ahead of the competition is that we offer their clients (solicitors) free conveyancing leads. This is an excellent marketing tool and they only receive this service by ordering regular searches from Pali. This works because we have a button on our homepage of the Pali website which allows members of the public to apply for a conveyancing quote. The clients who have this facility activated are alerted and the first four to click on the link in the auto email they are sent, get to send their quote direct to the member of the public.

Pali also drives traffic to the web page via SEO Blogs, Google Adwords, and Social Media Platforms.

The Opportunity

The Pali opportunity is essentially a hands-on ‘White Collar’ Franchise. It is the Franchisee’s role to acquire the business and develop it in such a way that your clients will always look to Pali as the preferred provider of property search services.

The Pali Service

Every property transaction in England and Wales involves a series of conveyancing searches. Most commonly, a Local Authority Search is carried out by Solicitors and Conveyancers acting on behalf of clients who are purchasing or selling a property. The information is obtained from the Local Authority within which the property is situated.

Local Authorities have a specific statutory obligation under the Local Land Charges Acts and Rules to provide the results of a search of the Local and Land Charges Register, which constitutes a record of relevant information on legal and financial restrictions, notices and charges against the property held by the Local Authority. It consists of legal, financial, planning, drainage, building control and environmental health information relevant to a property.

The usual method for submission and response employed by Solicitors and Conveyancers is by post, a process which may take up to 8 weeks to complete. There is also a provision for personal attendance which is utilised by Pali and allows for a much more efficient service. Pali have developed a system which allows our franchisees to personally access the relevant information, complete the search and present the results for Solicitors whose clients appreciate the quality and speed of the service that we deliver. Increasingly the information required to compile a local search can be accessed online and this will increase as local authorities utilise the internet to display information. Eventually it should be possible to compile a local search from your office.

In addition to Local Authority Searches, Pali offers a full suite of additional searches which are increasingly requested by property buyers. These include Environmental, Flood, Drainage, Mining, Anti-money laundering and company reports.

Pali's service is further enhanced through the use of unique bespoke software systems which have been designed to streamline the search process and produce an efficient and well-presented report.

Advantages of becoming a Pali franchisee

  • Through a Pali Franchise it is possible to run your own small business yet share in many of the advantages and economies available to a larger company.
  • At the outset, the Pali Franchisee may lack certain skills or specialist knowledge in running the business. However, the initial training programme compensates for areas of relative inexperience. Further training (at the Franchisees own expense), advice and guidance will also be provided on an ongoing basis.
  • The Franchisor has spent a considerable amount of time and effort refining the Pali processes. The benefit of this experience is available to Franchisees.
  • Once they are instituted Franchisees will benefit from national and regional advertising campaigns, which will be run when appropriate. In addition, professional marketing assistance, at the Franchisees own cost, is available to Pali Franchisees to help run their own high quality, lead-generating local advertising campaigns.
  • Where appropriate, new services will be made available throughout the Pali Franchise network.
  • Recent DTI figures suggest that 20% of all new business start-ups fail within their first year and 50% fail within the first three years. The statistics for Franchises are much more comforting. The BFA/NatWest United Kingdom Franchise Survey 2004 found that only 1.4% of Franchisees suffered commercial failure in 2003.
  • Every entrepreneur makes mistakes in the early years of a new business. Some mistakes are trivial – some can be fatal to the business. However, many are avoidable. The advantage of a Pali Franchise is that the potential big mistakes have already been ironed out of the system. By following our business methodology these mistakes can be avoided, thus increasing the likelihood that your Franchise business will succeed.
  • The Franchise Departments of most large clearing banks have already looked at the Pali Franchise format. Since the banks are already familiar with the concept, your finance application ought to take less time for approval.
