Informal Wills on the Way?

16th January, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

We have written on numerous occasions of the danger of either failing to leave a will or of not taking professional advice when making your will. Among the difficulties that can arise with DIY wills are challenges by family members who have been excluded from benefit, a failure by the person making the will to be sufficiently precise regarding the identities of beneficiaries – for example when leaving bequests to charities, or provisions that create unforeseen tax issues. Many more problems can occur and, in part, that is because of...

Solicitors Are Under a Lifelong Duty to Guard Client Confidentiality

11th January, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

One of the advantages of placing your trust in solicitors is that they owe a lifelong duty to maintain the confidentiality of any information you give them. That point was underlined by a High Court case in which a solicitor was banned from taking instructions that could conflict with the interests of her former clients. The solicitor had, for about a year, worked as an in-house lawyer for a property company. During that period, she had access to confidential information concerning the company's assets and its financial and legal affairs....

Minor Drafting Error Corrected – £1 Million Saved

10th January, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

Under Inheritance Tax (IHT) law, certain types of trust have a ten-yearly charge to IHT on the value of the trust assets. The legislation, which imposes IHT of 6 per cent on the 'relevant property' in the trust settlement, was introduced in 2006 and applied from 2008, so the first periodic charges are now in point. When a wealthy family created two trusts in 2000 and 2004 and settled more than £18 million in them, the relevant legislation had not been passed. The current trustees of the trust were appointed...

Council Must Consider Planning Application

8th January, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

People who seek advantage by going beyond the bounds of planning permission they are given can expect to be taught a very expensive lesson by the courts. However, the law does guarantee the right of a person to have a planning application considered, as was illustrated by a recent case involving the submission of a revised planning application after a flagrant breach of the terms of an earlier application. The council had granted planning permission for a property that was to be used for storing vehicles, and a building was...
