I say Leasehold you say….? If you have come across this term, then you’ve potentially come across it due to the bad press Leasehold Properties received before we were swamped with Brexit news. The horror stories and steady stream of newspaper articles about developers charging first time buyers thousands, buyers finding themselves stuck with a property they cannot sell and villainous Management Companies making their millions. MG Legal, Property Solicitors Preston, look at why despite mounting public concern Leasehold properties might not be on their way out yet. 
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. 
In a world where social media filters are used on a daily basis to hide how we really look, and HD TV shows all our wrinkles and defects, many of us don’t feel too comfortable out there in the real world, and we decided to have a nip or a tuck, botox fillers, or even dental braces, to give us the perfect smile. 
In any sport, from boxing to ballet and beyond, there’s always the chance that any one of us, can, and will be injured. 
 
According to a recent survey, the most common sporting injuries are, in no particular order: shin splints, sciatica, pulled hamstring, torn cruciate ligament, concussion, and the good old-fashioned groin pull. And yet it may not always be the person partaking in the sport that gets injured, MG Legal, accident injury solicitors in Lancaster, have also successfully helped those just spectating, receive an award of compensation, too! 
Many people don’t consider themselves as needing a Will. However, Lancaster Solicitors explain that having a Will in place is important for everyone. Whether you consider yourself to have a large estate or a small asset pot, your Lancaster Solicitors can draft your Will, tailored to your circumstances, all for a fixed fee. 
When a person passes away, if they have left a Will, their estate will most likely need a Grant of Probate obtaining. Solicitors in Lancaster, MG Legal, can help the executors of the Will (the people name in the Will as being ‘in charge’ of the deceased’s estate) to apply and obtain a Grant of Probate
Sounds weird doesn’t it? 
 
“How do you want to own your property?” 
 
“I just want to own it.” 
 
When you purchase a property with someone else it is called “co-ownership” and all cases of co-ownership tend to give rise to a trust of land. 
 
With any form of co-ownership all of the legal co-owners must join in any future disposition of the property. If there was a dispute which when to court, for example, then the Court may make whatever order it sees fit but the Courts will generally take into account why the property was bought. 
Apparently, the passing of the Civil Liability Bill will stop insurance fraud arising from road traffic accidents. Aviva, insurers of 1 in 4 motor vehicles in the UK, will say that last year, 2017, it detected £59 million pounds worth of fraudulent injury claims (the writer is unsure if this sum relates also to vehicle damages, credit hire, and solicitors’ costs, arising out of the road traffic accident claims). Aviva, obviously jubilant in the knowledge that the Civil Liability Bill has passed though the Commons, and the Lords, will say that they are presently investigating more than 17,000.00 road traffic accident claims they believe to be fraudulent, and that motor insurance accounts for 60% of all fraud detected by their offices. 
Let’s tell it exactly as it is- representing yourself in court, or when drafting legal documentation, is not a good idea. The rules (Civil Procedure Rules 1998, as we are talking about road traffic accident solicitors, in this instance) are not ‘watered down; for the general public, and there is no special dispensation afforded by the courts to those injured in road traffic accidents who do not have the means to instruct a solicitor dealing in road traffic accidents. And yet, despite the obvious pressures put upon the court system (trust us when we say, it’s already busy, and complicated enough), and the lack of parity for those representing themselves, the Civil Liability Bill is coming to a legal system near you in April 2020. 
Following Solicitors in Lancaster’s blog on Food allergies and the dangers of incorrectly labelled food (which you can read here), ITV News has recently published an article which Solicitors in Lancaster found very interesting - Researchers have conducted a landmark study into Peanut allergies, and the ability to build up a tolerance to them in children.
