FAQ

General information

  • What is the difference between quick registration and full registration?

    If you start a 'Try for free' document, you will need to complete a quick registration. All you will need to provide is your name, email address and your chosen password. Should you choose to purchase a product you will need to undertake a full registration which requires more details from you, e.g. your address. View our Cookie & Privacy Policy which explains how we use your personal information.

  • I'd like to speak to someone about the DAS Householdlaw service before I proceed, is this possible?

    Absolutely, just view our Contact us page for details of how to get in touch with us.

  • What makes DAS Householdlaw different from other online legal services?

    Most online legal services provide you with 'off-the-shelf' or 'flat form' legal documents that will be relatively inflexible to your particular circumstances. Our documents ask you a series of easy-to-answer questions each with helpful explanations and often, examples. Based on your responses, our system drafts and tailors the required clauses to create a document suitable to your circumstances.

    Furthermore, each document has a set of comprehensive, yet easy to understand guidance notes providing an overview of the document, things you need to consider like the jurisdiction of the document and signing and witnessing the document, together with explanations of any terms you may not understand.

    All our documents and letters are created by top solicitors and barristers and are constantly reviewed and updated in accordance with changes in the law, giving you peace of mind that your document is of the highest quality and legally sound.

    Finally, with all our documents you have the ability to try out the document free of charge.
