Your local solicitors for Wills, MG Legal, understand that it can be hard to know whether your Will is still valid after a life-altering event.  
 
However, not all events call for you to make changes to your existing Will. As our solicitors in Preston would explain, if you do not have a Will in place already, we would recommend booking in with our solicitors for Wills to discuss making a Will – we currently have an offer of Wills for £50 plus VAT (until 20th March 2019). 
The Jiff Lemon Case (officially known as Reckitt & Colman Ltd v Borden Inc [1990] 1 All E. R. 873) is a leading House of Lords decision (now the Supreme Court!) on the tort of Passing Off. 
 
Passing Off is a common law tort created by judges. Passing off is a type of unfair compensation claim made by holders of registered trademarks to stop or prevent others from copying the mark or packaging of a certain product. The owner of the trademark can receive remedies such as damages or injunctions. 
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! 
As a conveyancing client, the use of the Land Registry will, in all probability, not be something you are familiar with. This is, however, a very important part of the conveyancing process for your Lancaster law firm to deal with. The Land Registry are proposing big changes which, when effected, will not only affect your solicitors in Lancaster, Preston Law Firm, or your nearest solicitors, but will also affect your conveyancing Lancaster transactions. 
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! 
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. 
What are Official Copy Entries? 
 
Official Copy Entries are a form of document which your solicitors in Longridge can download from the Land Registry. This document will show all of the records the Land Registry hold about the property, and includes information for your property solicitors Preston to review and investigate accordingly. The records are held under a specific title number, unique to that property and are accompanied by a Title Plan showing the physical boundaries of the property. 
As the pound suffers its worst day since 2016 it would seem to be a bleak Friday indeed. This news comes as, according to the BBC, analysists are advising that homes are taking longer to sell than they were a year ago. Since 2016 the markets have appeared little affected by Brexit however as the March 2019 departure date approaches it seems that the figures are being affected. This news is not helped by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors forecast that house prices are at the lowest they have been since 2016. Currently; it is estimated that housing transactions are down twenty percent however on the whole house prices are still on the rise.
