Frequently asked questions
What is LegalZoom?
We’re an online legal services provider that focuses on helping families and small businesses. Our organisation consists of both a law firm for the legal services like conveyancing and wills. Also we have business experts to help you form a company and support your business needs.
We have all the good bits of a law firm or solicitor’s office, like expert qualified lawyers and we are authorised as well as regulated by legal bodies (pausing for a moment for the official bit, these include the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Conveyancing Quality Scheme). What we don’t have is the dusty offices, ancient technology, and eye-watering fees for doing the simplest thing.
Instead, we get lawyers and tech geniuses to design really easy ways of doing legal stuff online. Then we have people to give you help over the phone whenever you need it. And of course we have lawyers standing by, ready to do their thing. It’s all much more straightforward than the old-fashioned way, and it costs less too.
How can you help me?
We can help you wherever your life meets legal. When does that happen? Well, maybe you’ve fallen in love, so you want to sell your flat in Chelmsford and move to a cottage in the Lake District. That’s great we’ll look after the legal side of buying and selling the properties. Or maybe you want to be your own boss, so you’re setting up as an IT consultant. Good for you. We’ll look after the legal side of forming a company, dealing with the tax and sending the right paperwork out.
We’re starting with the big stuff and we aim to add more services as we go on. But we always look at it from the same point of view: what are you trying to do in your life? And how can we help with the legal side of that?
Ultimately, our aim is to open up the law, so that everyone can do what they need to do without all the confusion and jargon, and without it costing an arm and a leg.
What can you do for businesses at the moment?
We can form a company, give your business a London address (with mail forwarding), help you with a business bank account, set up payroll for you, do accounting and tax, offer company secretarial services, prepare confirmation statements, register you for VAT and PAYE, dissolve a company, make it easy for you to accept online payments. The legal services provided include help with buying and selling business property (commercial conveyancing). And there’s more to come.
What can you do for me personally at the moment?
We can help you buy or sell a home (conveyancing) and make a will. Again, there’ll be more soon.
