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. 
So, you’ve suffered a personal injury. You’ve instructed your local personal injury solicitor in Preston, Lancaster or Garstang, but you and your personal injury solicitor have reached an impasse with the ‘at fault’ party: i.e the MDU in the case of a claim for medical negligence are not settling the matter, or in the case of an accident at work, the employer’s insurers are refusing to see sense, and make sensible offers in settlement of your claim. 
 
In this instance, as any personal injury solicitors in Preston worth their salt will tell you, it’s time to commence legal proceedings. 
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. 
Have you ever sold a property? Well, as many of our client’s will vouch, it can be a VERY stressful time! However, some would argue that, to take some of that stress away, you could always … raffle your property. 
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. 
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.
