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”. 
At MG Legal, your Lancaster law firm, we are proud to be accredited by the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Standard (CQS). You may, however, ask what this means and why it is important? 
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. 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. 
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. 
According to a recent speech by Andrew Walker QC, the thread that binds the legal process together, the Rule of Law, (The authority and influence of law in society – the main pillar of the Rule of Law being that all members of a society, including the government, police, and any other powers, are considered equally subject to publicly disclosed legal codes and processes), is under threat as a result of cuts being made to legal aid relating to family law and those in need of their nearest solicitors dealing in criminal law. MG Legal’s team of solicitors in Preston, and many other local family law solicitors have noticed that the much of the public are unaware of the cuts, and our solicitors in Lancaster, Lancashire still receive requests for legal aid from clients on a daily basis. 
What are Covenants? 
 
Covenants are important matters, contained in the property’s title, that affect the land and can be either positive or restrictive. 
 
They can be found within the Official Copy of the Register of Title. The Official Copies may contain a schedule which will outline the covenants for your solicitors in Lancaster Lancashire to study. The Official Copies may also refer to specific documents which contain covenants. Your solicitors in Lancaster would then request copies of such documents to gain clarity on what the covenants are and what they mean for their client.
