Re: Lasting Power of Attorney

Is the solicitor just being difficult or have I misunderstood.

Neither - I suspect the correct answer is that the solicitor is just thick.

Final Top Gear

Just watched it, a great finale, it had me laughing out loud, which is extremely rare for any TV programme these days. It was also remarkably poignant for such a superficially laddish show. The elephant in the room joke was both funny and sad, and [more]

Re: Investing in cheap property to let

Have you considered putting some money into peer to peer lending, such as Zopa or Funding Circle? This seems to produce a fairly good rate of return by current standards (5% or so) and also seems reasonably safe.

It's certainly a great deal [more]

Re: Is insurance invalid after death?

Is there anything an executor can't get on and do without formal Probate?

Not in strictly legal terms, but in practical terms it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to deal with many assets, particularly land. This is [more]

Re: who is staying up? Can v Eng WWC

You still watching HYD...can we hold on?

HYD might not be but I stayed up, and I was glad I did - a great result and (from what I saw of it) an entertaining game. It's a pleasant novelty to hear the words "England in the last [more]

Calling Clitheroekid: And another thing. How many DVLA hoops and loops is it going to take before we can legally transfer this deceased person's car to a new owner? Will we have to wait for probate before we can sell it onward?

Re: Attack in Tunisia

I was listening to Any Questions this evening, and they made the mistake of having 4 MP's on the panel. It made me realise why so many people hold politicians in contempt, even though on an individual basis they are often decent, hard-working [more]

RIP Patrick Macnee

A good innings at 93, but another vaguely depressing reminder of old age creeping on. I can well remember the first series, which was 50 years ago - in fact I think the first woman I fell in love with was the incomparably beautiful Diana [more]

Re: Unacceptable scenes

Perhaps we should kill two birds with one stone. The EU could agree to bail out Greece in return for all the migrants being housed there.

As they clearly have considerable drive and ambition they would have the Greek economy back on its feet [more]

Re: Charge

My op was about terminology.

Another Fool referred to the Land Registry, but I hadn't, so I mentioned that not all charges have to be registered.

The snag with deviating from an op is that misunderstandings can

Re: Colour Laser printer recommendations

I've been running a Dell 1760NW and a 1765nfw for a long time now, and I'm very impressed with them.

I used to use inkjets for colour printing but they drove me mad with their dried up cartridges. I've never had any problems at all with [more]

Re: Swearing by comedians

I think Peter Cook (emphatically not Dudley Moore) was one of the greatest comic geniuses ever. But I don't find this sketch funny at all, and I think the [more]

Re: Buying leasehold

There's a big difference between buying a leasehold house and a leasehold flat.

Buying a leasehold house isn't massively different to buying a freehold house. You have to pay an annual ground rent (usually an insignificant sum) and there are [more]

Re: Charge

I'm intrigued as to what sort of charge it is that doesn't need to be registered. Certainly all conventional charges need registration, and it's very much in your interests that they are [more]

Re: US gun law

I found him very funny, and the points he was making were very well made. But I also thought he was using what we must coyly call the f word far too much, and in the end I switched it off.

Re: Leaseholder goes bust

If the tenant was Joe Bloggs Ltd then only the tenant is liable for the rent, and if the company is dissolved that's the end of it.

However, it's common practice for a landlord letting to a company with no trading record to require a [more]

Re: Are you as clever as Jo Nesbo?

The simple answer I arrived at after about 10 seconds of mighty cogitation was that it's the switch that doesn't produce any visible light.

It's vaguely possible that there could be a switch for someone on the ground floor to switch the [more]
