Joint Property Ownerships: The potential problems

Let’s first explain what joint property ownership is. If a property is held jointly with right of survivorship, when the first owner dies, the surviving joint owners in the normal course automatically become the owner of all of the property. So let’s say a brother and a sister own a house together. They each have two children. When the parents have both passed, they will each own a quarter of the property. There are potential problems with this though, and it’s usually due to a conflict of interests. If one individual want to keep the property but the others want to sell, the property will be sold, unless the one that wants to keep it can buy the others out, but of course a price needs to be agreed one. That can be the case if two want to sell, they can force the sale, so really it’s just a case of an individual or a couple of individuals in this instance feeling as though they’re losing control, and this can often cause disputes.

The basics of writing a will

Will writing is a very complex task and that’s why seeking professional legal advice is recommended. For simple wills, writing it yourself is okay, however for more complicated wills hiring a professional will help the process run more smoothly. If you have many possessions, such as property, vehicles, jewellery and cash, you will need to have a clear plan to whom these will get passed on to.

If you have a large family that you wish to add into your will, it is very important that it is clear on who gets what. Which such a lot to consider, you should use a solicitor or a professional will writing service to make sure your will follows the correct guidelines. You would never want your will to be void due to a silly mistake or error, so seeking professional assistance is highly recommended. There is no correct time to write a will, however if you have possessions that you wouldn’t want to lose then writing a will is always recommended.

Things To Remember Before Buying Legal Expenses Insurance

Legal expenses insurance is a worthwhile investment for those who want the financial assurance in regards to future legal costs. However, this often expensive insurance is already included in other polices.

Are Already Covered?

Before buying legal expenses insurance (or any kind of insurance) make sure your car and house insurance policies don’t already include it. Some professional companies also offer free legal advice, so check to see if you are able to receive that too

Make Sure Not To Over-Insure

When purchasing legal expenses insurance, make sure not to over-insure. Certain policies ask for classification as ‘you’ being the person named as the policyholder in the schedule. However, many policies often include partners and members of the family while only asking for the name of one policy holder. For these policies you and your partners and/or family will be covered, so you won’t need to take out other policies to cover them.

The Decisions That Need To Be Made When Selling a Business

On average, a house will sell within four months of its listing. However, it may take nine months to a year to sell a business. When an offer is made to buy a business there are several choices the seller can make. The seller may accept the offer, make a counter offer, or reject it entirely. The agreement becomes a binding purchase offer once all parties agree to the terms and conditions.

There are some decisions that need to be made when making a sale, they include the following: Will seller financing be offered, will the business be sold entirely or as assets, will any assets be kept by the seller, will a majority stake be kept by the seller, and will a year of transition time be put into place after the business is sold?

It may serve the buyer to do due indulgence by inspecting all aspects of the business operation, and that all contingencies are removed.
