There is a train of thought that solicitors should give more advice about leaving money to charity when discussing wills, and it is something that certainly needs bringing to the public’s attention.
After all, the general consensus when it comes to wills is that your lifetime’s legacy will be given to friends and family, but many wish to make more of a difference rather than making loved ones lives that bit more comfortable. Read More
The old saying goes that blood is thicker than water, meaning families come together when things get tough to support each other.
However, whilst blood ties are important, the sad fact is that every year families are involved in disputes that can tear them all apart. Read More
The death of a loved one is unquestionably one of the most traumatic events that we all have to contend with.
At a time of grief, the administration of an estate is something that many find very difficult to endure.
It’s understandable, as probate, which is the administration process of the estate following the owner’s death, is often both time-intensive and complex. Finding yourself in a position of responsibility for the family can be daunting, and it can be draining on top of dealing with one’s own grief. Read More
As many will know only too well, buying a property is far from the most straightforward of tasks.
It’s exciting but fraught with worries, delays and frustrations, but ultimately your stress levels can remain more stable by starting out with quality independent conveyancing advice as a first port of call.

Pre-nuptial agreements can be a thorny subject, with many seeing them as a very unromantic start to a life together.
However, the appeal of Prenuptial Agreements as a way to protect wealth going into a marriage is expected to gain in popularity after a woman lost her case for an equal share of her ex-husband’s assets.
Karen Hart had wanted half of her husband’s £9.4m fortune, but at the Court of Appeal, Lord Justice Moylan, agreed the £3.5m, out of total resources of just under £9.4m, in a financial remedy order made in June 2015, was the right decision. Read More
It is with intrigue that we have read recent research from Countrywide Estate Agency showing that one in 20 offers on properties in the South East that were originally accepted by a seller in 2017 were then rejected in favour of a higher one from a different buyer.
It showed the number of properties on which gazumping has occurred is up by 35% on 2011.
The gazumping tactic is a fraught business when a buyer has an offer accepted on a property, they then naturally start to emotionally move in.
It is a terrible disappointment when an estate agent rings to tell them that someone has made a higher offer and the seller is now going to accept the other buyer’s offer.
