Due to the dreaded 'B' word (Brexit), your Solicitors in Preston have seen a rise in the number of people who are applying for an Irish Passport.  
 
But, as part of the process of applying, you have to have your identity certified by a professional, such as MG Legal. But what is certifying a document, and how much does it cost?

Your local solicitors for Wills, MG Legal, understand that it can be hard to know whether your Will is still valid after a life-altering event.  
 
However, not all events call for you to make changes to your existing Will. As our solicitors in Preston would explain, if you do not have a Will in place already, we would recommend booking in with our solicitors for Wills to discuss making a Will – we currently have an offer of Wills for £50 plus VAT (until 20th March 2019). 
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.

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.
