As a conveyancing client, the use of the Land Registry will, in all probability, not be something you are familiar with. This is, however, a very important part of the conveyancing process for your Lancaster law firm to deal with.

1 There must be an offer made; 
2 The offer must be accepted; 
3 There must be sufficient consideration passing between the parties; 
4 Both parties must have mental capacity; 
5 There must be an intention to create legal relations. 
 
Now, whilst a few of the points may seem obvious, Solicitors in Lancaster explain that it can be easy to fail to meet all the conditions. 
Solicitors in Lancaster, MG Legal, are experts in drafting Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs). There are two types of LPA that you can create: one relates to financial decisions, and one relates to your health and care decisions.  
 
Whilst it may seem like a trivial matter, and you may think it will never happen to you, LPAs can cover a variety of situations, such as if you no longer have capacity or if you are physically unable to make decisions yourself. You can appoint Attorneys in other circumstances, such as if you are abroad and want someone to deal with property matters on your behalf, however Solicitors in Lancaster would need to discuss the circumstances with you, and advise you on the best way to proceed and the costs involved.

Now imagine that you make the momentous decision to spend £455.00 to buy a pair of shoes even though you can buy a similar pair for £20.00 from “Primarnie”! You make all kinds of promises to yourself; about how you’re only buying them to wear to that job interview, they’re an asset, if you get the job then technically you’ve made money on them, they’ll be lucky when you take them on that date, after all Louboutin’s are a symbol of excitement for women the world over. 
I say Leasehold you say….? If you have come across this term, then you’ve potentially come across it due to the bad press Leasehold Properties received before we were swamped with Brexit news. The horror stories and steady stream of newspaper articles about developers charging first time buyers thousands, buyers finding themselves stuck with a property they cannot sell and villainous Management Companies making their millions. MG Legal, Property Solicitors Preston, look at why despite mounting public concern Leasehold properties might not be on their way out yet.
