When buying a property in joint names, your solicitors in Preston Lancashire will require confirmation as to how you wish to hold the property. This is for entry within the Transfer Deed (TR1), which effectively transfers the ownership of the property from the seller to the buyer. This Deed is submitted to the Land Registry for entry within the Register, it is, therefore, important that this is correct before signature and submission. 
Many parents of minors who suffer from a lack of mental capacity often forget that the automatic rights given to them by way of Parental Rights protections, including all financial and medical decisions, are diminished somewhat when their child reaches adulthood, often leading to a minefield of confusion, worry, and lack of knowing where to turn. 
At the end of June, our Lancaster solicitors team wrote about a Supreme Court Ruling relating to Civil Partnerships and Marriages, whereby a couple, Steinfeld and Keidan, wanted to enter into a Civil Partnership (read our blog, here). 
 
The final ruling made by the Justices was that the appellant’s rights under article 14 and article 8 of the European Convention of Human Rights was breached by the continuing legality of the Civil Partnership Act 2004 following the introduction of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013. 
 
At MG Legal, your property solicitors Preston, we understand that the term ‘Japanese Knotweed’ would be the last thing on your mind when moving home. To your conveyancing solicitor Preston, however, this is a term of high importance within the conveyancing process. 
 
The Office for National Statistics has found a range of trends over the years in relation to time of the year that marriages take place, and on what day. For example, with over 800 weddings usually taking place on a regular Friday, the 11th November 2011 (11/11/11) was a Friday, and it saw the number of weddings almost doubling to 1,529! Another date which is not at all popular is Christmas day. With an average of only 5 couples per year tying the knot on 25th December (an average number taken from 1970 to 2013), it would appear to be one of the quietest days of the year to get married*. 
 
Whether you choose to get married at the start of the year (a quieter time to choose, apparently!) or on a busier occasion such as Valentine's Day, it is always best to make sure that you are prepared legally for your marriage, such as considering a pre-nuptial (or pre-marital) agreement.
