Where there’s a Will, there’s a way! At your local solicitors for Wills, we are familiar with advising clients who find themselves in the midst of a separation or divorce on the best way to ensure that their ex-spouse does not benefit from their estate. Sometimes, a Will itself is not enough, and it can be prudent to include a bit more information for your executors so that, if necessary, the Court can see your intentions behind your final wishes. 
 
However, for one Surrey man, Mr Hendry, this was not necessary. Following the breakdown of their relationship, Mrs Hendry filed for a divorce in November 2016, however these proceedings were brought to an end when Mr Hendry died in February the following year. 
When your loved one passes away, quite often you will need to obtain a Grant of Probate, commonly just known as Probate. 
 
This process normally involves making an application to the Probate Registry Office, including details of the deceased’s financial position and their Will. If their Will is not available (or in some cases, if they did not have one), you would need to apply for Letters of Administration. 
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. 
Solicitors in Lancaster, MG Legal, offer services in the following:-

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
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. 
When buying a property in joint names, your solicitors in Preston Lancashire will require confirmation as to how you wish to hold the property. This is for entry within the Transfer Deed (TR1), which effectively transfers the ownership of the property from the seller to the buyer. This Deed is submitted to the Land Registry for entry within the Register, it is, therefore, important that this is correct before signature and submission. 
Many parents of minors who suffer from a lack of mental capacity often forget that the automatic rights given to them by way of Parental Rights protections, including all financial and medical decisions, are diminished somewhat when their child reaches adulthood, often leading to a minefield of confusion, worry, and lack of knowing where to turn. 
At MG Legal, Solicitors in Longridge, Solicitors in Lancaster and Solicitors in Preston, we understand how overwhelming in can be to approach a Solicitors firm. Even for something which can be portrayed as minor by some solicitors, for example making a Will, at MG Legal we aim to make every client feel as comfortable as possible.
