How to Make Sure You Are Getting the Right Document?

Getting the right legal contract or business document could be tricky. Here’s how to choose the right source, so that you can get a peace of mind that doesn’t cost the earth.

1. Do I need to see a solicitor?

Generally you don’t need to, unless the transaction recorded in the agreement is of high value, complex or prescribed by law (it is a legal requirement to have a solicitor involved) e.g. conveyancing. But if you need to have that document sorted at 2am in the morning surely a lawyer is no there to help.

2. What kind of documents can I get online?

You can find a vast array of legal providers claiming to sell the best documents for you and your business, but many are of dubious origin. How do you know the document you are buying is legally binding and up to date with current laws?

Only legally trained professionals keep up to date with legal changes, when choosing a legal provider online for your legal and business documents you should make sure they are properly trained.

3. How can I customise a document template?

Legal document templates are basically ready to go. What you need to do is simply fill in your details. They generally come with comprehensive guidance notes helping you with the tailoring.

Don’t worry about the legal jargon. Leave it to the wig-wearing guys. Good document templates are always written in plain English, so you won’t be confused.

4. But will it survive the Court???

You may wonder, how a document downloaded off the Internet can survive the scrutiny of the wheel of justice? It is possible, provided you have made sure your template is from a reputable legal provider. It’s sometimes worth paying a bit more to get it from a trusted place.

Trust me, when it comes to legal issues — better safe than sorry!
