We seem to be focusing a lot recently on words that you would never really use in everyday life, but here’s one phrase that we, as your local solicitors for Wills, think you need to know about. Fraudulent calumny is – simply – slander, usually in the form of making defamatory or incorrect statements about one person, to another. In some cases, the statements made can lead to drastic consequences, such as them amending their Will to exclude a loved one, based on the information they have been given. 
There are a range of different hazards to be aware of on the roads in order to keep yourself, and other road users, safe. Your Lancaster law firm come across accidents that have occurred on the roads on a daily basis, known as RTAs – Road Traffic Accidents - and have expert road accident solicitors to assist with such matters. 
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? 
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”. 
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.
Usually, when you prepare a Will through your local solicitors for Wills, MG Legal, we would ask that you attend the office to sign, and two members of staff would be able to act as your witnesses (we’ve witnessed so many Wills, we’ve started to dream about it!). Sometimes, we even visit people at their properties and act as witnesses there. It all depends on how able you are to travel to our offices. 
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. 
It is well-known, often cited case law that a person should never be able to gain from illegality (Patel v Mirza [2017] AC 467). Property Law however is tricky. Read on to discover how the courts have assisted Mr Rashid (in the case of Farakh Rashid v Mohammed Rashid: [2017] UKUT 0332 (TCC)) gain from illegal actions. 
What does that even mean? The Solicitor said something about the thingy? MG Legal, Solicitors in Chorley, demystify Conveyancing jargon so you can concentrate of the important things. Like your other half talking gibberish about not moving on that day because “the football” or your mother telling you that the walls of your dream house should be magnolia white and your bathroom should, of course, feature snot green tiles.
