Some legal issues you can anticipate and prepare for. Andrew & Andrew can offer you general advice on taking care of your interests when we are acting as your solicitor in Portsmouth.
Make a will
If you want your estate distributed in a way that is fair to all of your loved ones then it is essential that you make a will. If you do not, your estate will be divided according to the law. This can often leave out partners, step-children, close friends and anyone else who is not covered by the legal process of estate division. A will is the best way to ensure that everyone is taken care of after you’re gone.
You do not need to be daunted by the process. When we make your will with you, we go through all of the right questions to ensure that everything is covered and accounted for.
Get a survey done when you are buying a house
We see a lot of house sales here at Andrew & Andrew. We offer an efficient conveyancing service for one of the biggest transactions that most people will take part in during their lives. That’s why we can offer advice on the whole process.
There is a minimum survey level that is usually required by your mortgage provider in order to proceed with your purchase. However, it is strongly advisable to have a higher level than this done in order to flag up any potential issues. How deep you want to go depends on the type of property you are buying. It can be a disaster if you take on a building that is not sound.
We perform a number of property searches for you when we are acting as your solicitor in Portsmouth for similar reasons. It’s just good sense to be sure of what you are buying when you purchase a property.
