Recent research, finding that many prefer online contact as opposed to meeting with face-to-face with their solicitor, has come at a shock to MG Legal’s team.

More often than not, by the time clients come to instruct a property solicitor, they have a buyer in place, and already know how to sell a property.  
 
However, as a busy Lancaster law firm, our property team deal with a variety of property sales- be that by way of sale on the open market, traditional auction, modern auction, part exchange, home equity release or quick cash sale companies, and are extremely well-placed to give selling advice
“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”.

Ever seen the Despicable Me when the Minions start saying “blah blah blah”? If you haven’t then the reference will probably make as much sense to you as some of the terminology used in Conveyancing. If you have then you’ll know that when Solicitors start talking then often, they may as well be saying “blah blah blah” for all then sense it makes! Well never fear for a (wanna be) Superhero is here to explain the terminology of the contract to you (ha! Bet you thought it was going to be something way more exciting!) 
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.

As a conveyancing client, the use of the Land Registry will, in all probability, not be something you are familiar with. This is, however, a very important part of the conveyancing process for your Lancaster law firm to deal with. The Land Registry are proposing big changes which, when effected, will not only affect your solicitors in Lancaster, Preston Law Firm, or your nearest solicitors, but will also affect your conveyancing Lancaster transactions. 
Imagine you’ve found the perfect pair of Louboutin shoes. The bright red soles that shine the red of holly berries as you walk with its slim stiletto and classic pointed toe. Now imagine that you make the momentous decision to spend £455.00 to buy a pair of shoes even though you can buy a similar pair for £20.00 from “Primarnie”! You make all kinds of promises to yourself; about how you’re only buying them to wear to that job interview, they’re an asset, if you get the job then technically you’ve made money on them, they’ll be lucky when you take them on that date, after all Louboutin’s are a symbol of excitement for women the world over.
