Placing Trust in a Family Member Proves Unwise (Again)

23rd February, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

Even the most apparently trustworthy people can sometimes turn out to be anything but and that is one good reason why it is sensible to appoint a solicitor as executor of your will. In one case that proved the point, an ex-police officer took advantage of his position to steal his disabled cousin's inheritance from her father. The cousin was vulnerable to financial exploitation and, in the belief that the officer was well placed to protect her interests, her father appointed him as his executor. Following her father's death, however,...

ISAs in Estates to be Tax Exempt

21st February, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

One of the issues that proves difficult for executors of deceased persons who have Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs) is that the interest on them is taxable once the owner has died. Many of these accounts are small and, given that interest rates have been very low for years, the effort associated with the necessary tax compliance is disproportionate. The Government has recognised this and a statutory instrument, the Individual Savings Account (Amendment No. 3) Regulations 2017, has now been enacted which exempts ISAs from Income Tax for deaths after 5...

Cohabitants Entitled to Bereavement Damages

20th February, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

The legal implications of cohabitation are often poorly understood by those who choose to live together outside of marriage or civil partnership, and the lack of protection for cohabitants often comes as an unpleasant surprise to many, especially when a relationship ends or one of the partners dies. Given that there are more than three million cohabiting couples in the UK, this lack of awareness produces dozens of court cases annually as long-term cohabitants find they must fight to try to realise their expectations of their legal rights. However, a recent...

Victims of Crime and Compensation

15th February, 2018 By Alireza Nurbakhsh

It is normal for victims of crime to think that the conviction and punishment of the criminal marks the end of the process entirely. However, that is not always the case as, when appropriate, compensation can be sought from the criminal. A good example is a recent High Court case in which a woman in her 50s who had been the victim of sexual abuse for many years when she was a child achieved a settlement of more than half a million pounds in damages after taking professional legal advice. The...
