Jen­nifer Cur­tis, who is a Solic­i­tor at spe­cial­ist fam­i­ly law firm James Maguire & Co, recent­ly blogged about the options avail­able for deal­ing with prop­er­ty upon divorce.

In sum­ma­ry, on divorce, there are two main options available:
1. Sell the prop­er­ty; or
2. Trans­fer the prop­er­ty to one party’s sole name.

Depend­ing on cir­cum­stances if the par­ties can agree, or the court orders, there may be a third option:
3. Delay doing any­thing with the house until a trig­ger event”

Clear­ly, this con­text requires a degree of sen­si­tiv­i­ty between par­ties and a good com­mu­ni­ca­tion between the var­i­ous Solic­i­tors. Our col­lab­o­ra­tion with James Maguire & Co has been suc­cess­ful for over three years & we work togeth­er on relat­ed work to assist clients with­in the wider legal context.

Using two law firms’ offers clients the oppor­tu­ni­ty of using spe­cial­ists in dif­fer­ent legal areas, rather than one firm that cov­ers all. This con­cept was the rea­son­ing behind the North West Solic­i­tors Group which assists clients to find an expert more eas­i­ly & efficiently.
