Partner Dan Evans considers how to avoid the re-letting headache

08 Apr 2019

As a commercial landlord, the re-letting process is likely to be a stressful time.  Letting voids can be damaging to the profitability of your investment and getting the property re-let in an efficient manner is key.  

There is sometimes a perception that agreeing the letting via agents is the end of it, but in reality that is only part of the process. The legal documentation needs to then be negotiated and agreed.

‘Digital Divorce’ - Beware the Pitfalls

01 Mar 2019

In May last year, it was announced that couples who want to begin divorce proceedings can now do so online, with the introduction of the fully 'digital divorce'. This means that rather than having to wade through a lengthy paper divorce petition, a Petitioner in a divorce can submit the paperwork online, as well as pay the Court fee. This is part of the government’s efforts to simplify the divorce process, making it more accessible to those wanting to divorce, and in turn, hopefully reducing some of the stress and worry for those involved.
