It’s always nice to get good feedback from a happy client, so with our expert team of Solicitors in Garstang, Solicitors in Longridge and Solicitors in Lancaster receiving more and more nice reviews and thank you gifts, we thought that we would share our successes. 
MG Legal, Solicitors in Lancaster know that Buying your first home can be one of the most stressful times in anyone’s life!  
 
So, let us help by answering one or two of the most commonly asked questions about the Help to Buy ISA: 
The Jiff Lemon Case (officially known as Reckitt & Colman Ltd v Borden Inc [1990] 1 All E. R. 873) is a leading House of Lords decision (now the Supreme Court!) on the tort of Passing Off. 
 
Passing Off is a common law tort created by judges. Passing off is a type of unfair compensation claim made by holders of registered trademarks to stop or prevent others from copying the mark or packaging of a certain product. The owner of the trademark can receive remedies such as damages or injunctions. 
MG Legal, Garstang Solicitors, are delving deep in to their personal archives and contouring the memory of their parents telling them that they must do a certain something and the reasoning behind the order was always “because I said so”. Seemingly Dover District Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council were hoping to get away with the same reasoning. 
 
Two recent cases Dover DC v Campaign to Protect Rural England (2017) and Oakley v South Cambridgeshire District Council (2017) both involved cases where planning permission was granted despite public opposition and against advice of Planning Officials. 
The Property Redress Scheme is essentially the complaints department for the tenant and Landlord world. Estate Agents and Letting Agents dealing with residential properties in England and Wales must be a part of the scheme and if a customer is complaining about a service which cannot be resolved between themselves and the Agents then they can complain to the Scheme. 
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. 
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. 
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. 
Finding new clients requiring a solicitor is, believe it or not, uber-competitive. I mean, as soon as you Google ‘personal injury solicitors in Preston’ claims management companies appear at the top of the page, and they don’t even have an office within 20 miles of the Preston area. So, in such times, what does your local property and divorce solicitors do? Well, they turn to social media in order to attract more clients.. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and maybe even Pinterest.
