When you’re buying a car, what is it that you look for? Maybe it’s the tech gadgets (how would we be able to live without our Bluetooth?!), maybe it’s the safety features, or maybe you simply choose your car based on the colour (yes, I really need that bright yellow car, mum!).

When you’ve passed your test and you’re looking at insurance for the first time, it can be daunting. With insurance costs always seeming to go up (or is it just us?!), the costs for a first-time driver can now be over £2,000.00, even with a black box. One way of reducing the costs that many people consider, is listing their parent as the main driver on their car, and themselves as a secondary driver. Although this can reduce the costs of the insurance, insurance companies call this ‘fronting’, and consider it to be fraud. 
When your injured, it can be hard to know whether it is something that you can claim for. Fortunately, the best Personal Injury Solicitors in Lancaster, MG Legal are on hand to help you know where to start. 
You may have seen in a popular newspaper this week, the headline “Man, 64, selling 3-bed home in posh area for ‘£200,000 discount’ – but you have to let him live in it”. Whilst the Newspaper goes on to report this incident as if it is some bizarre unheard-of money-making ploy, local Conveyancers and Property Solicitors recognise that the Newspaper has just caught sight of a home reservation scheme. 
Currently, the only reason for divorce are that of “irretrievable breakdown”, on the basis of one of the five grounds, which can be found here. The eagle -eyed among you will note that we highlighted back in January that change was coming, with Sir James Munby making his feelings in respect of the “blame game,” couples must play abundantly clear.

Local Knowledge: - Local Solicitors = Local Knowledge.  
 
So, you found your dream home. The Seller hasn’t disclosed any issues with flooding and you aren’t aware of this being an issue either. You’ve decided not to have searches carried out, and the flooding issue hasn’t come to light. Your local Solicitor knows the area and knows to ask the Solicitor on the otherside whether there have been issues in this regard. Local Knowledge means that there is a much higher likelihood of accuracy when it comes to your transaction and it may also mean speed too. If the Solicitor has local -knowledge they may not have to waste time raising 1,000,000 queries if they already know the answer!  
 
Some property Solicitors in Preston, such as yours truly have dealt with transactions where they have bought the property for one party and are now selling the property so we know they questions that are likely to be raised and we can often pre-empt them! 
MG Legal, were surprised to read that Senior lawyers are urging members of the judiciary to learn how to interpret emojis. Whilst your local divorce solicitors know that many of you understand that emoji’s are the little symbols commonly used when texting which depict smiling faces, animals, food and the weather, to a typical high court Judge the use of such symbols can be somewhat confusing. 
Following on from our previous blog on the circumstances during which you should re-visit your Will, which you can read here, MG Legal’s local solicitors for Wills are here to present you with some shocking statistics. 
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.
