Mother’s Day is more commonly known as Mothering Sunday, and is said to originate from 16th Century, when people returned to their mother church (the place where they were baptised or their nearest church) to attend the Laetare Sunday service (a service held on the fourth Sunday of Lent). The religious meaning behind the day is said to have kept it’s place over the years, until the 1950’s, where it became a common-place celebration across the UK.

So, as a reminder, an Easement is a right over a property which benefits another property (you can read more about them here) and an easement may be granted to continue indefinitely, or for a fixed period of time. Whereas a lease is a contract by which one party conveys land, property services, etc. to another person for a specified period of time, usually in return for payment (you can read more about them here). To confuse matters a little more there is also such a thing called a lease of easements. A lease of easements occurs when someone has a lease of land which they then adapt to grant a lease of rights, but interpreting such a document can create difficulty because sometimes it is not clear whether a lease of easements is granting a lease or creating an easement for a set number of years. 
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. 
Imagine selling your property for peanuts then discovering that it is a prime site for development. Your Buyer then sells the land or property for millions, and you’re sat wishing that you could get your cut. Or if you were the Buyer - imagine the Seller knocking on your door three years later demanding a cut of the money you have made selling the property on.  
 
MG Legal, conveyancing Solicitors Preston, know that this can be a worrying thought for both sides involved in the transaction. 
“Quic quid plantatur solo solo credit.” Nope the Conveyancing Solicitors Preston have not finally lost the plot; that is Latin for (roughly) “Whoever owns the land at the bottom of the lake owns everything up to the sky”. 
Keeping up-to-date with case law, may not be fun for you. However, as your local divorce solicitors, we don’t just switch off at 5pm and head home – we are here to keep in the know on your behalf! In doing so, we’ve stumbled upon a recent case whereby a husband sought to argue that the wife’s financial claims had been finalised during Judicial Separation Proceedings, and that she was not entitled to make a further claim during the Divorce proceedings. 
When contacting your solicitors in Lancaster, and purchasing a new property with the assistance of our Lancaster law firm, one of the last things on your mind may be whether or not the property has solar panels. Well, think again, as a new Scheme for residual energy, produced by solar panels, may be slowly creeping up your new property’s ‘wish list’. 
A guide for the time in between exchange and completion: - 
 
How long have you got? 
 
Historically; people used to have approximately a month between exchange and completion. Now its normal to have a week but sometimes turn around can be as quick…same day kind of quick! The good news is that you have a say in the time you leave between exchange and completion so think about how long you want. You will need to decide this before the exchange takes place. 
 
If you want to remain calm, sane and organised we advise avoiding an exchange and completion taking place of the same day. Despite the massive temptation we at MG Legal, Lancaster law firm, recommend that you avoid at all costs! 
Ever seen the Despicable Me when the Minions start saying “blah blah blah”? If you haven’t then the reference will probably make as much sense to you as some of the terminology used in Conveyancing. If you have then you’ll know that when Solicitors start talking then often, they may as well be saying “blah blah blah” for all then sense it makes! Well never fear for a (wanna be) Superhero is here to explain the terminology of the contract to you (ha! Bet you thought it was going to be something way more exciting!) 
Every personal injury solicitor in Lancaster and road traffic accident solicitors in Preston, Lancashire, will tell you that if you have been injured as a result of a road traffic accident, accident at work, or at the hands of a doctor to surgeon (this is called medical negligence), they will help you obtain an award of compensation, and probably on a Conditional Fee (No Win No Fee) Agreement, basis. 
 
And this is exactly how your local personal injury solicitors, MG Legal, have helped thousands of victims of personal injury achieve what are at times, life-changing amounts of money in compensation.
