Halifax is to offer customers access to everyday legal products such as wills and expert legal advice.
The group believes it is the first major high street financial services provider to offer such a service which customers can access for an annual membership fee of £89.
Members will have unlimited access to legal services either online, or through a dedicated telephone legal service staffed by solicitors, barristers and other qualified professionals.
Services include will preparation, a 24 hour legal advice helpline, an ID theft resolution service, discounted conveyancing and a searchable web based law guide.
The range of services will be prepared by a panel of selected service providers including HammondsDirect, FirstAssist, Epoq and Capita, as well as a dedicated Halifax team.
The service is available to customers and non customers in England and Wales via the website www.halifaxlegalsolutions.co.uk, or by telephone on 0845 226 111.
Head of Halifax Legal Solutions Joel Ripley says: “Most people need legal advice at some point in their lives. 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.”
