When contacting your solicitors in Lancaster, and purchasing a new property with the assistance of our Lancaster law firm, one of the last things on your mind may be whether or not the property has solar panels. Well, think again, as a new Scheme for residual energy, produced by solar panels, may be slowly creeping up your new property’s ‘wish list’. 
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. 
Ok, the answer to this is one isn’t simple. As your local accident injury solicitors, or solicitors in Lancaster will yell you, the ‘at fault’ party’s insurer do have a few tricks up their sleeve. 
 
For example, any road accident solicitor will be able to tell you about certain insurer who used to accost clients on their doorstep, and badger them into accepting a low offer, subject to payment being made on the spot. Fortunately, those days are gone, and your local personal injury solicitors, MG Legal, will always advise our clients to wait for the opportune moment.. 
The Health and Safety Executive, HSE defines stress as ‘the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them’. 
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.

Currently divorce law is based on a statute enacted in 1973 and it is argued that this law is hopelessly out of date. Certainly, there have been attempts at reform and more recently there have been requests for launching a campaign for ‘no fault’ divorce. Sir James Munby making his support for a ‘no fault divorce’ clear “The simple fact, to speak plainly, is that….the law which judges have to apply and the procedure which they have to follow are based on hypocrisy and a lack of intellectual honesty”. Read on to discover the current law. 
I am painfully aware that I am writing this in January. Ever the optimist I am going to concentrate on the fact that it is 57 days until Spring and in my mind, it is sort of Spring…ish. I mean Christmas is out of the way. And there is no doubt about it, everything just feels better in the Spring…everything looks better in the Spring too which is why most people choose to sell in Spring. The gardens look pretty, the daffodils are blooming, and everything feels fresh so let us have a look at the Conveyancers guide to gardening. Which isn’t so much a guide to gardening rather look at Japanese Knotweed and the messy horror it causes (that took a dark turn didn’t it!). You may have heard… it cost £70 million to clear the blight at the London Olympics in 2012!
