Following the case of Owens v Owens, which has made headlines on more than one occasion in recent months, the Government are proposing making changes to Laws surrounding divorces, to minimise the stress and anxiety it causes the parties involved. 
 
MG Legal Lancaster Solicitors have summarised the main points of the report, to help you understand what it entails. 
Exchange of Contracts is often referred to as the ‘point of no return’, this is because, by Exchanging, you are giving authority to your Solicitors in Lancaster to complete on the agreed date, which makes the transaction legally binding. As you can see, this is why your Lancaster law firm aim to proceed to this stage of your matter as soon as is possible. 
 
As per Section 2 of the Law of Property (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1989, the Contracts are to be identical and include all relevant terms. Your Solicitors in Lancaster will draft the Contract for sale and send this to the buyer’s solicitor for their approval. Once approved, with any necessary amendments, the Contracts can be Exchanged. 
When you are making a Will (for a fantastic price of £50 plus VAT! – No-brainer, right?) with your Preston Law Firm, MG Legal, they will need to know who you want to leave your estate to (or who you don’t want to leave it to, in some cases!). The common word for this is your beneficiaries.  
 
However, something that you may not have considered is who you would want to benefit from your estate should your initial beneficiaries predecease you. 
Whilst reports spiral about £400 million divorce rumours, spats between celebs would not normally trouble us. Caveat.. they wouldn’t normally trouble MG Legal, family Solicitors Lancaster, they do bother me…love the celeb gossip! 
Now, quite often things can become heated over Christmas. Quite a few people consume alcohol, and, well let’s face it, it’s a long time to spend with family consecutively – regardless of how much you love them, right? 
You’ve been injured at work, injured in a road traffic accident, or bashed your head after tripping over a defect in the local high street. So what do you do? Well, before contacting your nearest personal injury solicitors, you attend A&E, your local Accident an Emergency Department, where, most of the time at least, you’ll be extremely well looked after, by everyone from the receptionist, to the triage nurse attending upon you. 
When your loved one passes away, quite often you will need to obtain a Grant of Probate, commonly just known as Probate. 
 
This process normally involves making an application to the Probate Registry Office, including details of the deceased’s financial position and their Will. If their Will is not available (or in some cases, if they did not have one), you would need to apply for Letters of Administration. 
“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”. 
Keeping up-to-date with case law, may not be fun for you. However, as your local divorce solicitors, we don’t just switch off at 5pm and head home – we are here to keep in the know on your behalf! In doing so, we’ve stumbled upon a recent case whereby a husband sought to argue that the wife’s financial claims had been finalised during Judicial Separation Proceedings, and that she was not entitled to make a further claim during the Divorce proceedings. 
When liability is disputed, and the parties to a road traffic accident cannot agree who was at fault, then sometimes, your local personal injury solicitors will advise you to issue legal proceedings against the motorist you believe to be at fault. 
Two cars, one black and one blue, that have collided - the blue one having crashed into the rear of the black car.
