I’m not going to apologise but I will give you fair warning that there is definitely a feminist angle to this. Ugh your eye rolls are almost audible but please don’t stop reading! I’m not about to insult your intelligence with a lesson on the meaning of glass ceilings, patriarchy or even that fact that in the 21st century there is STILL a massive gender pay disparity (which remains at around 30% difference between the genders). You probably already know this. 
It is well-known, often cited case law that a person should never be able to gain from illegality (Patel v Mirza [2017] AC 467). Property Law however is tricky. Read on to discover how the courts have assisted Mr Rashid (in the case of Farakh Rashid v Mohammed Rashid: [2017] UKUT 0332 (TCC)) gain from illegal actions. 
What does that even mean? The Solicitor said something about the thingy? MG Legal, Solicitors in Chorley, demystify Conveyancing jargon so you can concentrate of the important things. Like your other half talking gibberish about not moving on that day because “the football” or your mother telling you that the walls of your dream house should be magnolia white and your bathroom should, of course, feature snot green tiles. 
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. 
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. 
In the quest for perfect shoes the path never did run smooth. 
 
Picture the scene; its warm, you’re wandering the streets of Manchester, you’re channelling your inner Carrie as you wonder what you would do if Big had proposed to you. And then you see them…the perfect, flawless, sky high heels an ideal match for that dress you’ve been dying to wear. Their red soles glinting in the sun light, seducing you, tantalising you, teasing you. Without a thought you rush in, “Size 6?” you’re in luck, your breath catches as your foot slips in and the perfect shoe is a perfect fit. To top it off they’re in the sale. 
 
What. A Bargain. 
At MG Legal, your conveyancing solicitors Preston, we not only specialise in residential property, but also commercial property transactions. 
 
What is commercial property? 
 
Essentially, commercial property is property that is not designed or used for residential purposes. Primarily, commercial property deals with office, retail, leisure and industrial buildings. This is where the work of your property solicitors Preston come in. The main reasons for buying commercial property fall into the following: 
Although, as your property solicitors Preston will advise, there is a duty on the seller to disclose any relevant information about a property they are selling - the general rule is known as ‘Caveat Emptor’. Essentially, this means let the ‘buyer beware’, and stipulates that the buyer should make the necessary investigations prior to Exchanging Contracts when buying a property. 
 
This brings us to the responsibilities of your conveyancing solicitors Preston who are on hand to ensure the integrity of, and make the necessary enquiries about the property being purchased. 
When selling a property, MG Legal, your Preston law firm, understand that there can be a lot to take in and consider, in particular the amount of documentation you are required to complete. This is why your conveyancing solicitors Preston are on hand to help. 
 
There are a number of important documents your Garstangs solicitors will provide, however, you may ask, what are they for and why do they need to be signed? 
At MG Legal, we understand that the term ‘First Registration’ may mean nothing to you. However, if you are purchasing a property that is currently unregistered at the Land Registry, your solicitors in Lancaster will be required to carry out this process on your behalf.
