Whilst the act cannot deal with the neighbour’s children perfecting their drum solo at 1am it can prevent and resolve disputes involving party walls, boundary walls and excavations near neighbouring buildings. 
There can’t be too many of us who haven’t had to chase for the £100.00 we lent a ‘friend’ for a night out. Obviously, the friendship soon ends and you realise (probably) that, to quote Polonius, it’s probably easier to avoid the wrath of your significant other, to follow the adage of ‘neither a borrower or lender be’. You live and learn. 
 
I mean, you’d never serve a friend with a Statutory Demand.. would you?  
 
Well, actually, no. At least not for a hundred quid. But what if they owed you in excess of £5,000.00- this being the threshold for which you can start serving your Statutory Demand against an individual. 
 
Tell us what a Statutory Demand is, then. 
Want to get into that new property as soon as possible? Wanting your sale to Complete yesterday? 
 
It is often difficult for your property solicitors to pinpoint a specific date for Completion within your transaction, unless the matter is well progressed and your property solicitors have been able to agree a date with the vendor’s or buyer’s legal team. 
 
When selling a property in the local area, MG Legal will advise that the usual time limits are set at approximately 4-6 weeks to Complete. 
Lancaster Law Firm, MG Legal note that the changes in regulations which took place in April last year are causing problems for Commercial properties. 
 
The EPC contains various information about the property’s energy usage and its effectiveness. The Property is then given a rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient)…similar to a report card at school, only this time getting an F or G could mean much worse for you than detention! Conveyancing Solicitors will always review an EPC prior to completion of a matter. This is because every property, save for agricultural buildings or buildings due to be demolished, must have an EPC if they are put on the open market, up for let or a lease renewal. These are transactions that MG Legal’s property team, is very much experienced in. 
Bankruptcy is a multi-faceted beast- well, there are two ways of going bankrupt, and there are orders, assets, restrictions and registers to think of. 
 
If you can’t pay your debts, then you could make an online application to go bankrupt. Despite what most people believe, the cost of going bankrupt isn’t cheap, and in some cases, is certainly not a ‘soft option’, there being an application fee of £680.00, and there is no guarantee that the adjudicator, this being the person who works for the Insolvency Service, and will review your application, will actually make you bankrupt.  
 
The adjudicator will send an email within 28 days, confirming if the application is successful or not. If your application is unsuccessful, the £680.00 is not returned to you. 
If approaching your property solicitors in Preston to buy/sell a property which has only been registered in the current proprietor’s name for six months or less, you will be advised on the six month rule. 
Following the case of Owens v Owens, which has made headlines on more than one occasion in recent months, the Government are proposing making changes to Laws surrounding divorces, to minimise the stress and anxiety it causes the parties involved. 
 
MG Legal Lancaster Solicitors have summarised the main points of the report, to help you understand what it entails. 
As your trusted property solicitors, we understand that the ultimate goal is to get onto the property ladder and become the proud owner of your new home.  
 
Our Preston solicitors, (all of whom by the way own their own property, and completely understand how exciting it is to get the key and have that housewarming party asap), are on hand to make this happen in the smoothest fashion possible.  
 
However, there may be other obstacles standing in the way of this. 
So, you’ve suffered a personal injury. You’ve instructed your local personal injury solicitor in Preston, Lancaster or Garstang, but you and your personal injury solicitor have reached an impasse with the ‘at fault’ party: i.e the MDU in the case of a claim for medical negligence are not settling the matter, or in the case of an accident at work, the employer’s insurers are refusing to see sense, and make sensible offers in settlement of your claim. 
 
In this instance, as any personal injury solicitors in Preston worth their salt will tell you, it’s time to commence legal proceedings. 
What is a notice in conveyancing? 
 
A notice is something that can be registered against the Title to a property as a form of protection to someone with an interest in a particular property. Such notices must be registered, by your Garstang solicitor, via the Land Registry Portal. 
 
The conveyancing solicitor Preston should complete an application form which, dependent on the type of notice being registered, can vary. These forms include AN1 (Agreed Notice) or UN1 (Unilateral Notice), for example. We do, however, understand that these terms may mean very little to you, which is why our specialist team of Garstang solicitors are on hand to advise you of exactly what is required and to guide you through the process.
