There can’t be too many of us who haven’t had to chase for the £100.00 we lent a ‘friend’ for a night out. Obviously, the friendship soon ends and you realise (probably) that, to quote Polonius, it’s probably easier to avoid the wrath of your significant other, to follow the adage of ‘neither a borrower or lender be’. You live and learn. 
 
I mean, you’d never serve a friend with a Statutory Demand.. would you?  
 
Well, actually, no. At least not for a hundred quid. But what if they owed you in excess of £5,000.00- this being the threshold for which you can start serving your Statutory Demand against an individual. 
 
Tell us what a Statutory Demand is, then. 
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. 
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.
MG Legal, local divorce Solicitors, are constantly keeping up to date with various case law and judgements so that they can have a greater understanding of how the Court’s current policies, decisions and views could affect the outcome of your hearing. 
When a loved one passes away, there can be so much to do it can be overwhelming. MG Legal, local solicitors for Wills (and Probate!), have put together a list of useful information to remember, and things that you need to try and do for your loved one. 
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? 
A guide for the time in between exchange and completion: - 
 
How long have you got? 
 
Historically; people used to have approximately a month between exchange and completion. Now its normal to have a week but sometimes turn around can be as quick…same day kind of quick! The good news is that you have a say in the time you leave between exchange and completion so think about how long you want. You will need to decide this before the exchange takes place. 
 
If you want to remain calm, sane and organised we advise avoiding an exchange and completion taking place of the same day. Despite the massive temptation we at MG Legal, Lancaster law firm, recommend that you avoid at all costs! 
Usually, when you prepare a Will through your local solicitors for Wills, MG Legal, we would ask that you attend the office to sign, and two members of staff would be able to act as your witnesses (we’ve witnessed so many Wills, we’ve started to dream about it!). Sometimes, we even visit people at their properties and act as witnesses there. It all depends on how able you are to travel to our offices.
