Solicitors in Lancaster, MG Legal, offer services in the following:- 
According to a recent speech by Andrew Walker QC, the thread that binds the legal process together, the Rule of Law, (The authority and influence of law in society – the main pillar of the Rule of Law being that all members of a society, including the government, police, and any other powers, are considered equally subject to publicly disclosed legal codes and processes), is under threat as a result of cuts being made to legal aid relating to family law and those in need of their nearest solicitors dealing in criminal law. MG Legal’s team of solicitors in Preston, and many other local family law solicitors have noticed that the much of the public are unaware of the cuts, and our solicitors in Lancaster, Lancashire still receive requests for legal aid from clients on a daily basis. 
In many divorce matters, both spouses want matters to be resolved as quickly as possible, and they likely want an outcome of financial matters that suits their situation. However, despite the emotional experience that you may be going through during the divorce, it is important to make the right decisions and to follow the financial process set out by the Court, to ensure that you get the settlement that you are entitled to. 
What are Covenants? 
 
Covenants are important matters, contained in the property’s title, that affect the land and can be either positive or restrictive. 
 
They can be found within the Official Copy of the Register of Title. The Official Copies may contain a schedule which will outline the covenants for your solicitors in Lancaster Lancashire to study. The Official Copies may also refer to specific documents which contain covenants. Your solicitors in Lancaster would then request copies of such documents to gain clarity on what the covenants are and what they mean for their client. 
Sounds weird doesn’t it? 
 
“How do you want to own your property?” 
 
“I just want to own it.” 
 
When you purchase a property with someone else it is called “co-ownership” and all cases of co-ownership tend to give rise to a trust of land. 
 
With any form of co-ownership all of the legal co-owners must join in any future disposition of the property. If there was a dispute which when to court, for example, then the Court may make whatever order it sees fit but the Courts will generally take into account why the property was bought. 
Where a Freehold means that you own the property and the ground it is built on; owning the Leasehold means that you Lease the property from the Freeholder and you have the use of it for a specific period of time. 
 
Leasehold and Freehold are terms that are usually glossed over however whether a property is Freehold or Leasehold (and more specifically the terms of the Lease) can often determine whether a property is worth purchasing or not. 
During Family Law Proceedings, the Judges have numerous options open to them when considering what terms to set within an Order. 
 
If parties cannot reach an agreement between themselves outside of Court, and after attempting mediation, then your Solicitors in Lancaster would suggest issuing proceedings in Court to help finalise financial matters relating to the divorce. 
Many people want to change their name. Whether it’s changing your first name because yours just isn’t keeping with the times (we all have doubts at times whether our name suits us - or is that just us?), or changing your last name, or even adding in a middle name, Solicitors in Lancaster, MG Legal, are on-hand to help you draft the required Deed of Change of Name. Whilst this is something that some people may want to draft themselves, it is always a good idea to consult Solicitors in Lancaster to ensure that this is done correctly, otherwise you could find yourself unable to use the document when you most need it! 
MG Legal, your property solicitors Lancaster, with offices throughout Lancashire, have found that the average age for a person buying their first property is between 25 and 34. Is it coincidence then, that the most recent government report into Intergenerational transfers have found that this is also the most popular age for people to receive gifts or loan from a family member? Obviously, there are those of us who still need to obtain a mortgage, and your conveyancing solicitors Preston, MG Legal, still deal with many of the high-street lenders on a daily basis. 
Purchasing commercial property, in many ways, mirrors the procedure of a residential purchase.
