Re: Probate: bills before grant

Do the deeds get changed into our names somehow or do we wait for probate to complete then contact the Land Registry to register in our names? Also would this be joint names or just my sister who is the executor?

You can sell the [more]

Re: Any ideas

Except for the one about no smoking anywhere in the resort. :-)

It says "No smoking" second down on the list of amenities.

Re: Probate: bills before grant

Our solicitor has been quoting £350 per hour and reckons £3500 - £4500 in total

Is he perchance a partner in Messrs Cloud, Cuckoo & Land?

That's frankly absurd for a simple probate matter, much of which [more]

Re: Probate: bills before grant

Should we make our own private payments to these utilities and settle up later? Or should we ignore them and wait for the grant of representation?

Just ring them and let them know of your mother's death. They have dedicated [more]

Re: Britain's housing before BTL

What you appear to brush over, is that your council accommodation was subsidised accommodation - in other words - at other peoples expense.

So what would you call privately owned housing let to tenants who receive Housing Benefit? [more]

Re: Transfer of ownership

There are no real legal issues - transferring the bungalow is very straightforward. However, there may well be issues of another sort, mainly to do with the risk your father is taking in transferring such a valuable asset.

The risk is that [more]

Re: Edgar Mitchell passes

I totally agree. When I'm dealing with estates I regularly get phoned by a firm who have some sort of deal with utility companies to collect outstanding utility bills from ex-customers.

They have a peculiarly oleaginous approach when they [more]

Re: First Job Screw Ups

I remember another screw up occasion that was long before my first `proper' job. When I was about 16/17 I occasionally used to do some work for the chap who lived across the road. He was a tree surgeon, or as he preferred it, a `lopper, topper and [more]

Re: Child exploitation ??????????

The offer is simply that she is to start work on Monday 7th Feb and will work with zero wages for 3 months, after which the shop/store will pay her National Insurance payment?

I would say that this is in reality a job offer, and that [more]

Re: Hidden cost of ground rent

So, on careful reading of the lease, the initial £250 ground rent is backdated to 1961 and doubles every ten years. Since 1961, the rent has doubled five times and is now £8,000 a year. Over 12% of the guide price! This compounding means [more]

Re: Child Allowances Accross the EU

I suspect a direct comparison is difficult because of way such benefits are structured in different countries E.g means testing, tax allowances, cash payments etc......

I quite agree - the systems of assessing child benefit vary [more]

Re: What would you do?

I can see her point, but it seems to me that she's taking quite a risk. The cop that she admonished must be hugely embarrassed, and has probably got a severe bo**ocking off his boss. He won't be happy, and I suspect his chums won't be too happy, [more]

Re: Share trading in Austria

From the experience of overseas clients who have attempted this it can be difficult, though the fact that you're in another EU country and not somewhere like Nigeria or Russia should simplify things.

Re: New Top Gear

Expect TG to be a lot more female friendly: my daughter (19yo) immediately said she would watch it now.

As a traditional (i.e. grumpy middle-aged man) TG watcher this fills me with a profound sense of gloom. It was bad enough that [more]

Poll: Has Google triumphed?

By way of an update on a question asked by Mike4 in 2009, I'll repeat his question.

So my question is: If you needed to find a plumber, electrician or similar tradesman, where would you go first?

By way of comparison, in 2009 [more]

Hope this helps

It might well have done - 7 years ago!

You're replying to a poll that was set up in 2009, but it's a useful prompt to ask the same question again and see how it's changed. I suspect that the votes for Yellow [more]

Yes, though I think they were just `Talking Heads' without the `the' ;-)
