I just want to say how delighted I am with the service I have received from St Helens Law relating to my recent property purchase.

Leanne was not only professional and efficient, she was pleasant courteous, and went absolutely above and beyond.

As you know we moved house and had a baby at the same time, so it could have been quite stressful. Leanne was smashing. Please could you pass on my sincere thanks.

Prescot Free Clinic

At St Helens Law we pride ourselves on helping ordinary people gain better access to justice and to the legal system. With all the adverts on the television and worry of hidden costs, it's no wonder people are often left confused.

For years we have offered free intial consultations to the community on all matters in our St Helens office. However, with the recent demise of the Prescot Citizens Advice Bureau, we have now decided to extend this service to the community of Prescot and will hold a FREE legal clinic every Wednesday at Prescot Town Hall.

A solicitor will be there to answer your legal queries covering:- Conveyancing, Wills & Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Matrimonial and Family disputes, Landlord and Tenant disputes, Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence enquiries between the hours of 2:30-4:30PM.

There are no hidden charges to pay. Appointments are encouraged to avoid disappointment. Simply telephone 01744 454433 or e-mail prescot@sthelenslaw.co.uk for more information.

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013

Are you aware that these regulations came into force on the 13th June 2014? They apply to the provision of services to individuals. 
 
The regulations make certain terms in a contract mandatory and will make contracts in some cases unenforceable against the individual if they are not included. This would be the case even if you have already provided the service. They simply won't be asked to pay if the matter goes to Court and the deposits (if any) paid would be reimbursable by you. 

Imagine providing a wedding breakfast and then being asked to repay the deposit and not getting paid! 
 
Imagine providing accountancy services and then being told that they are not paying! 

It affects nearly all of us. St Helens Law will for £450 plus VAT look at your terms and ensure that this will not happen to you!

 

Mediation – A Way of Leaving Something for the Beneficiaries

The number of wills that are now being contested seems to increase day by day. Once upon a time the prospect of being asked to argue over the content of a will was remote, but the public now are far more aware of what their rights are and more and more actions are being taken by beneficiaries - and some relatives who are not beneficiaries as well!

People are living longer and there are more issues around incapacity than there used to be. Testators make a will and then develop some form of incapacity from, say, dementia and then have their capacity to make that will challenged at a later date. 

The Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 has led to a lot of actions being launched by dependant spouses or children not provided for in their view under the terms of the will. 

The great difficulty facing litigators over arguing over a will is that the costs will eventually, on some basis, come out of the Estate. There are ways of minimising the risk by well-calculated Calderbank offers or by Part 36 Offers, but the Estate is at risk of being plundered by litigators leaving very little, if anything, for anyone to benefit from.
