The wonders of employment law

Everyone involved in the care sector has been anxiously waiting the outcome of a Court of Appeal case regarding a care worker, Clare Tomlinson-Blake, who worked for Mencap and whose job involved a sleeping in role. She was paid a flat rate of £29.05 plus one hour’s pay at £6.70 for an overnight shif...

Re: Who is responsible for advising purchasers that a road is private/unadopted?

it says this is a private road, which is news to me. Our solicitor did not mention it to us when doing the conveyancing. Is it not the solicitor's responsibility to do a search on the road and advise the potential purchaser accordingly? The short answer is `yes' - they should certainly have brought...

This sort of stuff is happening more frequently - understandably really. Pretty difficult to write something original now isn't it. It's been happening for decades. I remember over 40 years ago being told by someone in in the music industry, "Where there's a hit there's a writ!" (It must ...

Re: Returning faulty item

As most normal people don't keep receipts for trivial amounts of expenditure it's unreasonable of Sainsbury's to insist on one, though some evidence would be helpful if it exists at all. However, this is the situation in many legal claims, and very often the only evidence is a statement from the par...

Re: DIY conveyancing

The estate was left to both of us. The house wasn't specifically mentioned. In that case, I'm afraid most of this thread has been a waste of time! As has been mentioned, the executors hold all the property in the estate on trust to distribute it in accordance with the Will. The general discretion v...

Re: Director Divestment

Provided it's a genuine gift - i.e. that no consideration of any description is received for the shares - then there would be no stamp duty payable, so HMRC would never even be aware of the transfer. I'm assuming from your original post that the shares have no significant value. However, if they do ...

I'm rather late to the party here, having been away from LF for a few days, but the first question that occurs to me is whether your father left the house specifically to you and your brother or whether he merely left his estate generally to you both.

OK, it's not really a practical issue, but it is related to a legal issue, namely the extent to which parties in civil actions lie when giving evidence.
