Disclaimer & Conditions


Legal Advice Online is a legal site providing basic guidance for consumers and small businesses. It provides general legal information to help people understand their legal rights, but is not a substitute for personal legal advice from a solicitor. It is always difficult to cover all relevant aspects by e-mail. As each situation is dependent on the exact nature of the facts, a personal consultation with a solicitor is the only way by which an accurate analysis of individual circumstances can be made.

You are welcome to use Legal Advice Online for your own personal, non-commercial purposes, as is subject to our following disclaimer and conditions of use.

By using the basic service of Legal Advice Online you are agreeing that where no personal consultation has taken place and information has been provided exclusively by e-mail, under no circumstances will it or its affiliates, or any lawyer or consultant connected with this site be responsible for (1) any information contained in, omitted or received from this site, (2) any persons reliance on any such information, whether or not the information is correct, current or complete, (3) the consequences of any action you or any other person takes or fails to take, whether or not based on information provided by us or as a result of the use of the site and their affiliates also have no responsibility for (4) any persons satisfaction with any lawyer or consultant, whether relating to their competence, diligence or otherwise (5) the results of any advice given by or representation from any lawyer or consultant, or (6) the failure or refusal of any lawyer or consultant to offer you his or her services.(7) None of our services include the cost of litigation which should be discussed separately.

If you require the services of such a solicitor, you should seek to use solicitors from an incorporated practice. (14) Legal Advice Online is a web site providing basic legal information and is not a registered incorporated legal practice.
