Nobody likes to think about a time when they won't be able to make their own decisions, but it can help to be prepared. Incapacity can happen at any time and come completely out of the blue from a serious accident or stroke, to a long-term illness.

That is why it is so important that everyone has a Power of Attorney, as well as a Will, in place. A Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows someone to make decisions for you, or act on your behalf, if you’re no longer able to or if you no longer want to make your own decisions.

Buying a house is the biggest expense and most important transaction most people will ever enter into. It is an exciting time, but often buyers focus on the dream of their new property rather than the reality of what they are purchasing.

This is equally true for buyers and sellers.

When Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin split a few years, their press announcement that they were going to “consciously uncouple” was mocked in the media, but the idea of divorcing happily is not just for the rich and famous among us.
 
Using alternative dispute resolution methods to resolve the issues arising from a separation is something that Macnabs encourage many of their clients to try. Around 42% of first marriages across the UK now end in divorce. The end of a marriage or relationship can be difficult enough, and the traditional (and confrontational) divorce action often adds to the pain.
