Lawyers may not be the most loved profession in the world, but at various points in our lives most of us will need one to advise us on everyday things.
The costs of those little trips to a solicitor can be excessive, but now a new service provided by Halifax will cut the cost of everyday legal services like making a will to pre-nuptials and property share.
Halifax Legal Solutions gives you easy access to expert legal advice, 24 hours a day, as well as a comprehensive will preparation service, discounted conveyancing, a searchable web-based law guide and identity theft resolution services.
These services are available both online or over the phone.
The telephone legal advice helpline is staffed by a team of solicitors, barristers and other qualified consultants.
The dedicated Halifax Legal Solutions website gives help with preparing a range of over 150 legal documents from tenancy agreements to seeking compensation.
All legal documents prepared using the service can then be reviewed by the qualified legal team, if required.
Using the unlimited access both online and on the phone can help bring you round-the-clock peace of mind that a quality legal service is available to deal with your everyday legal needs.
This £89 per year, flat-fee for legal service is thought to be the first of its kind launched by a high street financial service provider.
The Halifax is a trusted brand, having a relationship with two out of every five UK households, helping to give you the reassurance you might need.
“Most people need legal advice at some point in their lives,” explains Nina Morton-Brook,Head of Halifax Legal Solutions.
“Usually this is when they are moving home, making a will or dealing with a range of consumer issues. We are offering access to a range of straightforward solutions at a very good price.”
Services are provided by a panel of selected service providers including HammondsDirect, First Assist, Epoq and Capita, supported by a dedicated Halifax team.
Halifax Legal Solutions is available to residents of England and Wales. The service can be accessed online or by telephone on 0845 601 7590.
