When it comes to leasehold property advice, a question we are often asked is – when is the best time to extend a property lease and how should you go about it?
We advise that if your flat has a lengthy lease with between 70 and 90 years you should possibly apply for an extension, simply because without one you may have more issues selling or getting a mortgage.
When a landlord grants a lease it is for a fixed number of years, but once the years have completely elapsed the lease ends with the property going back to the landlord. Read More
The lives of the rich and famous can be a subject of fascination to many of us and it’s fair to say that Tara PalmerTomkinson was one such person who made the headlines.
There was a time, not so long ago, this socialite lady was almost a permanent fixture in newspapers and on TV.

As the wheels of commerce start grinding back into gear following the festive break there will be many looking on the new year as a fresh start.

A new report has shown that almost half of conveyancing clients complain of a lack of communication during the property selling/buying process. However, two-thirds of conveyancers believe they keep clients fully informed.
A majority of home-movers (55%) found themselves frustrated by a lack of control in the conveyancing process, according to a survey of 1,000 people by conveyancing software company InfoTrack.
The report showed nearly half of them (47%) wanted “regular digital communications” from their conveyancers, while more than a third (36%) also stated they would like the ability to track the progress of their transactions, including searches. Read More
As we have said many times here on our blog, there is a real inequality in the way that the law treats unmarried people, but the victory of a woman over her partner’s passing shows that a change is possibly in the offing.
In the past few weeks, Jakki Smith, a Lancashire lady, won her legal battle for better rights for unmarried people who lose their long-term partners. She took the government to court for breaching her human rights in denying her bereavement damages.
As things currently stand, a fixed sum of £12,980 is paid out if a person dies as a result of negligence – but it only applies to spouses or civil partners. Read More
