Life can get busy and complicated really quickly. If you should find yourself in a predicament it may not be possible to sort it so easily or quickly. If that’s the case then not everyone can sort these complications out for themselves, this is where you may need a solicitor to help you. They can give you both professional and confidential advice and will get the best possible deal for you.
Here are some of the reasons you may need to seek help from a solicitor
Buying or Selling A House
The process of moving can be a both lengthy and costly but having a solicitor to tie up all the loose ends will definitely make the process so much easier. They will deal with all the contracts and change over dates and if you have a chain of sales they will also help to speed up any delays that may occur.
Also, if you’re a landlord you may want to seek legal advice if you have tenants that are refusing to leave. Solicitors can act on your behalf to start eviction proceedings and guide you through any court case that may arise. On the other hand, if you rent a property and your landlord is being unreasonable with you, you are within your rights to seek legal help to see if there is anything that can be done to resolve any issues.
Making A Will
If you have a family you should make sure you have a will in place so that any loose ends can be sorted easily. If you already have a will please make sure that it is up to date so that should the unthinkable happen your requests can be carried out. They say that a death in the family always makes people show their true colours especially when money and property are involved and things can turn really nasty quickly. Families can also be complicated especially if they’re other siblings/partners involved from past relationships.
If you’ve been in a hospital and your operation went wrong or you were misdiagnosed then you may be able to seek compensation for medical negligence. I don’t like to speak badly of our health service as they do amazing things but even they get things wrong that can leave someone with life-changing conditions.
After An Accident
If you’ve been involved in an accident and it has resulted in you being off work, needing medical attention or left you unable to carry on with your life as before the accident you may be able to claim against the person or persons who are at fault. Solicitors will act on your behalf to ensure that you get what you are owed.
When you get married you don’t expect to get divorced but should your marriage breakdown then seeking legal advice is probably a sensible option. More often than not divorces are a messy affair and having mediation and professionals helping to deal with a fair outcome for everyone can really help. Similarly, if you have recently separated from your partner and have children together you may want or need to seek legal advice to arrange fair visitation rights if you can’t agree to something between you.
If You’re Going To Court
Having a solicitor when going to court is a must unless you are able to represent yourself efficiently. Having a solicitor will help you understand all the legal jargon as it is presented and they can fight your case when they know all the facts they are given.
