Frequently asked questions

What is LegalZoom?

We’re an online legal services company that focuses on helping families and small businesses.

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 to be boring, those 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 on the Isle of Skye. 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’s a formation agent?

We are. A formation agent helps you to set up a company in the proper legal way and register it with Companies House. We handle all the admin and technicalities for you, so all you need to do is answer a few really simple, clear questions here on our website. Then click a couple of buttons and you’re done.

Formation agents are often individual lawyers and accountants. But the process of setting up a company is very standard and straightforward. It doesn’t make much sense to pay an expensive professional to do admin for you. It’s a bit like paying Alan Titchmarsh to mow your lawn.

Don’t worry about filling everything in right. Our system checks everything. And if you like, you can go for our Peace of Mind package, which includes a specialist who’ll double-check everything. You can also call us if you’re not sure about anything.

What is a will?

What’s conveyancing?

It’s the process of transferring legal ownership of a property from the seller to the buyer. And it covers all the admin and legal to-ing and fro-ing you need to get a purchase recognised by law. Conveyancing kicks off when someone accepts an offer on their property, and wraps up when the keys change hands. It normally takes between eight and twelve weeks. In between, there’s an awful lot of paperwork. We’ll handle it for you. Our mix of personal service and tech back-up means you get the best of both worlds – individual attention with efficiency and lower costs.
