When your loved one passes away, there can be so many services that you have to cancel: the TV services, their gas or electric, their mobile ‘phone – the list goes on and on. A common thing that people do not think they need to cancel is their families’ Lasting Power of Attorney documents. 
 
But, how do you cancel the documents? Can you get a refund? 
In our previous blog post, which can be found here, we have discussed the changes happening to the Probate Service, including the move to an online system. 
 
As part of these changes, the traditional ‘Oath’ has been changed to a Statement of Truth. Paul Downer, in his blog post for HMCTS, has explained that a number of ‘pain points’ were identified as part of the research, one of which being that users were unsure of the term ‘swearing of the oath’, adding to their, usually already high, stress levels. 
It can seem obvious: don’t let your pet distract you whilst driving. Unfortunately, according to research carried out by Direct Line, 22% of vets revealed that an animal travelling in a vehicle without the proper restraints, was the most significant cause of the animal’s injury, or death. 
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. 
Now, quite often things can become heated over Christmas. Quite a few people consume alcohol, and, well let’s face it, it’s a long time to spend with family consecutively – regardless of how much you love them, right? 
You’ve been injured at work, injured in a road traffic accident, or bashed your head after tripping over a defect in the local high street. So what do you do? Well, before contacting your nearest personal injury solicitors, you attend A&E, your local Accident an Emergency Department, where, most of the time at least, you’ll be extremely well looked after, by everyone from the receptionist, to the triage nurse attending upon you. 
When your loved one passes away, quite often you will need to obtain a Grant of Probate, commonly just known as Probate. 
 
This process normally involves making an application to the Probate Registry Office, including details of the deceased’s financial position and their Will. If their Will is not available (or in some cases, if they did not have one), you would need to apply for Letters of Administration. 
“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 liability is disputed, and the parties to a road traffic accident cannot agree who was at fault, then sometimes, your local personal injury solicitors will advise you to issue legal proceedings against the motorist you believe to be at fault. 
Two cars, one black and one blue, that have collided - the blue one having crashed into the rear of the black car.
