Why do I need legal expenses cover?

Legal expenses cover is there to give you peace of mind that your legal costs are covered should a dispute arise. Solicitor’s fees can be expensive and can easily run into thousands of pounds, so having quality legal expenses cover for just £18.99 per year will ensure that should you need to make a claim, you aren’t left out of pocket. What’s more, Staysure’s legal expenses cover includes less thought-of issues such as jury service expenses, including cover for loss of salary or wages if applicable.

Identity theft cover

If you are unfortunate enough to be a victim of identity fraud then legal expenses cover can support you by providing access to solicitors and accountants while covering the costs incurred as you restore your identity.

According to Cifas, the UK’s fraud prevention service, nearly 150,000 people were the victim of identity fraud in 2015 – an increase of 57% from 2014. While banks, building societies and card providers are responsible for refunding stolen money, it can be a more complex process to restore your credit status if your details have been used to apply for loans, credit cards or any other financial product. In these circumstances, professional support is a must and Staysure’s legal expenses cover can not only cover the costs, but put you in touch with the right service as well.
