Solicitors Chester

With six children, fourteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, my Gran certainly had a very busy life.

She sadly died recently, at the grand old age of 90, and due to her many children and grandchildren, she didn’t leave a lot of assets.

We still need to find a solicitor in Chester to help us sort out her ‘estate’, especially as there are so many people involved.

My Gran did write a will a very long time ago, but that was before some of the grandchildren and great-grandchildren were born.

We all get along very well, and there is no reason for us to argue, but it is still best to get a solicitor in Chester to help sort it all out.

The main thing is that her house will need to be sold. Profits from the house will go to her six children, so that should be reasonably straightforward. It is then just a case of dividing up personal belongings, such as photographs and family heirlooms. I don’t think she would have spoken about things like this in her will.

None of us have any idea how this sort of thing works, so we will be relying on finding a solicitor in Chester to sort it all out for us.

Solicitors Nottingham

Young people often have a very romantic view of certain careers. They like the sound of being a solicitor, doctor, journalist, without really knowing what it entails.

Quite a few of my A-level students have said they are very interested in becoming solicitors, so I want them to find out a little bit more about the career. I need to paint a clearer picture for them, and I am trying to find a solicitor in Nottingham who can help.

I am sure the job of being a solicitor in Nottingham is a lot more involved and a lot more varied than my students think, so it would be good for them to see the whole picture.                                                                                                                     

Solicitors help people write their wills, buy a house, make a compensation claim, set up a new business and many more things. A lot of their work involves drawing up contracts and checking contracts and other legally binding documents.

I’m sure parts of their job are very exciting, and parts of their job just involve a lot of paperwork. I want a solicitor in Nottingham to talk to my students so they can make an informed decision about whether it is the career for them.

The more information we can give our young people, the better.

Solicitors Oxford

My husband has been working for someone and has not been paid.

We are going to have to find a solicitor in Oxford to sort the problem out for us.

He was working on a six-month contract when the man who commissioned him got behind with his payments. We are now under the impression he will not be paying up. He is saying he does not have the funds.

We are hoping a solicitor in Oxford will be able to help us get the money we are owed. Solicitors often specialise, so we are looking for someone who is an expert in this area.

My husband is owed quite a lot of money, so it is definitely worth pursuing, even if we have to pay fees to a solicitor.

It is hard to know how to choose the right solicitor in Oxford. It is not something I very often hear recommendations for, probably because most people I know don’t need to use a solicitor very often.

My husband isn’t confident talking to people he doesn’t know, so we need to find someone he finds it easy to communicate with. We might need to meet a few before we decide on the best solicitor for us.

Solicitors Leeds

My best friend is disappearing off around the world for a year, and I am so jealous.

She needs to find a solicitor in Leeds so she can hopefully rent out her house while she is gone.

I’m not sure how complicated it is to rent out your house while you are out of the country. Will my friend need to pay tax on the income from the house? What will she do if there are any problems?

A solicitor in Leeds should be able to answer all these questions and help my friend with all the paperwork.

Renting out a house involves organising legal documents, even when you are still living in the country. The lease agreement will need to be drawn up, with rent details and any restrictions on how many people can live there etc

My friend will also need to spell out how much notice she wants to give to end the agreement, for when she comes home. Hopefully a solicitor in Leeds will be able to sort all this out for her and hold all the paperwork while she is away.

Once her house is all organised, she just needs to pack her bags. I bet she can’t wait.
