The importance of having a will that is drafted correctly

It’s hard to think about death and leaving friends and family behind. Making a will can be the most important thing you do to make the period of time following your death as easy as possible for your loved ones. This is because in addition to providing guidance on how assets should be distributed, it can also direct them as to how you want certain matters addressed, when you are no longer there to provide instruction. 

Taking legal action when your solicitor acts negligently

There is no question that solicitors play an important role in a wide variety of legal transactions throughout the United Kingdom. People seek assistance from these professionals because of the expertise they have in matters that the average individual does not. Much of the time the guidance they provide results in a legal transaction being completed without any issues. There are times however where a solicitor may not provide the level of service expected from those in this position. This can manifest itself in many ways, depending on the nature of the legal matter they were hired to handle. 

Caution urged in buy-to-let transaction lending

The conveyance of property involves multiple steps. If just one of these steps is not completed correctly, it is possible issues could arise with the entire transaction. Through the rest of the month, a property risk expert is urging conveyances and mortgage lenders to pay even closer attention to lending risks. This is due to an expected increase in the number of buy-to-let property transactions. The anticipated rise in transactions of this nature is due to a stamp duty increase that takes effect the first of April.
