As a consumer or a landlord

People are often baffled when seeking the services of a solicitor; the fees charged (usually on an hourly basis) mean that it's all too easy to run up a large bill even for drafting the simplest legal document. Add to that the general complexity of the legal system and the jargon that is often used, then it's no wonder that the general public hold lawyers in low esteem.

ARAG Legal Services provides the perfect solution. Our services are clearly laid out in a jargon-free manner designed to make the process of drafting your legal documents as simple as possible. What's more many of these services are included as part of your ARAG Family Legal Solutions, Group Legal Solutions or Landlords insurance policy. For those services where we do charge, then you will always be shown an up-front, fixed fee – there's never any hidden charges or unexpected additional fees - and our fee is invariably better value than the equivalent from a high-street solicitor (see the table below for a list of typical fees they charge).
