- Price Transparency Era - Toward the end of 2018 The Solicitors Regulation Authority introduced new rules to ensure clients have the best possible information on solicitor’s fees at the outset. Law firms are now required to publish price and service information on their website for the following areas of law; residential conveyancing, probate and employment tribunal claims to name a few. The aim is to provide greater transparency to clients enabling them to make informed decisions about their legal matter.
- Grants of Representation - A Grant of Representation is the document required to confirm your authority to deal with the estate of an individual who has died. A Grant of Representation can be necessary whether or not the deceased left a Will.
You may feel that a planning dispute is preventing you from creating your dream home, or that someone else’s plans are affecting the value of your property. Our solicitors can help you solve issues like these, whilst always seeking to maintain friendly relations with your neighbours.
Planning disputes can quickly become emotionally charged, which can make it difficult to remain objective and see the best way to move forward. This is where a solicitor with many years’ experience can really help to make the difference. You may want to seek our expert advice on issues such as:
- Altering listed buildings
- Planning objections or applications including JR
- Enforcement of boundaries
We offer services to homeowners, commercial property owners and landlords, whether they are applying for or opposing a wide range of planning matters. We work with other professionals in the field to liaise with local authority planning departments to gain the best result possible from these procedures, which can be very slow.
The experienced solicitors at Parrott & Coales will help you navigate this broad and complicated area of law. If you are planning to embark on a large project such as an extension or a self-build home, we can provide an overview of your rights and how your project could affect any neighbours. If a new development has an impact on you or your property, then we can advise you of your rights and how to take appropriate action. This should help to avoid lengthy, stressful and expensive court cases. It is important to remember that the earlier you seek advice, the better your chances are of a favourable outcome.
