Charges and fees: on the 6th December 2018 our regulator, the Council for Licensed Conveyancers, will require us to clearly provide on the website, and on demand, information as to what our charges may be and, where it may not be possible to give a fixed fee because of the nature of the case, how our charges will be calculated. We welcome this transparency as it helps you the consumer. We will be publishing this information in due course when the CLC has let us know what they require in detail.

Inheritance tax: from 6 April 2017 a new family home allowance for deaths on or after 6 April 2017 when a residence is passes by death to lineal descendants. Savings of Inhertitance Tax will usually be available where an estate is taxable. The allowance is worth £125,000 in 2018 to 2019; £150,000 in 2019 to 2020; £175,000 in 2020 to 2021.

Property Fraud: the Land Registry has introduced a Property Alert service to reduce the risk of fraud where a property is owned by you but it is not your residence. Register at propertyalert.landregistry.gov.uk/

The changes to who inherits what under the intestacy rules: there are great benefits in making a Will to avoid unforeseen consequences where someone has not made a Will.

Lasting Powers of Attorney: can now be completed online. However this may not be practicable or you may want advice on them. We can see you at your home if it helps you.
