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. 
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. 
A very Happy New Year from MG Legal, your solicitors in Lancaster. It is at this point of the year at which we ponder over what the upcoming year will bring. At MG Legal, your Lancaster Law Firm, our team of conveyancers are also considering what the year may bring in the conveyancing world. 
 
There have been a number of recent observations, which place emphasis on the need for transparency within the conveyancing sector. This is, in particular, in terms of fees, the process and time scales. MG Legal, your Lancaster law firm, are already one step ahead in addressing these points to ensure the best experience for our clients. 
So, following our post last week explaining the A-F of Common Legal Terms, Solicitors in Lancaster, MG Legal, are back again to give you common legal words that fall under the letters G to K. We know, it seems like we’re taking baby steps getting this alphabetical legal guide to you, but it’s almost Christmas and there’s just too many words for one post! So, stay with us, and we’ll get there eventually – we promise! 
 
And, as last time, if there’s a word not on the list that you want explaining, drop it in the comments below and we will do our best to assist, or give us a call on 01524 581 306 for some guidance. 
When you are creating Lasting Powers of Attorney, one question that you will be asked is: How should my Attorneys Act? 
 
There are three different ways: Jointly, Jointly and Severally or Jointly for some decisions, Jointly and Severally for others. Your nearest solicitors, MG Legal, explain what the terms mean, and how the decisions will subsequently be dealt with. You can appoint up to four Attorneys initially, and up to four replacement Attorneys to act in the event that one of your Attorneys in unable to do so. MG Legal, your nearest solicitors for Wills, would suggest getting in contact via email to enquiries@mglegal.co.uk for advice specific to your situation. 
It is usually a topic that you wouldn’t really consider when getting divorce: what happens if your spouse (or recently ex-spouse) passes away. Unfortunately, it is a more common event than people would expect and it can, in some cases, change the outcome of proceedings in a dramatic way. 
 
In the case of WA v Executors of the Estate of HA & Others [2015] EWHC 2233 (Fam), WA, the wife of the deceased, appealed against a Consent Order on the basis that the Husband committed suicide 22 days after the Order was made. She argued that this constituted a Barder event, and she should therefore be entitled to claim back the sum already paid to the Husband.
