Welcome to our autumn newsletter.

In this edition, we are pleased to tell you about how Turbervilles has been awarded the Law Society’s prestigious Conveyancing Quality Mark, meaning that the high standards of our residential conveyancing service have been independently recognised. We would also like to introduce our three newest staff members, who form part of our ongoing plan to expand our business to offer an even better service to our clients.

We report on how the Government is considering views put forward by the public about planned changes to inheritance tax, and how a court has ruled that a widow is entitled to a house from her partner’s estate.

A husband has lost his appeal to get more than £5m in a divorce settlement, and a court has ordered that a girl must live with her grandmother rather than her parents. We also see why a mother has been prevented from taking her children to Canada.

One in 20 people move home because of problems with their neighbours; we look at ways to settle disputes amicably.

We hope you find these articles interesting. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like more information about the issues they raise, or any other legal issue affecting you or your family.
