RESIDENTIAL: Property sales and purchases, boundary, landlord and tenant disputes

Solicitor Richard Ainsworth is finding more and more house buyers knocking on his door.

He certainly has the expertise to help – Marsden Rawsthorn has dealt with conveyancing matters for well over 1,000 properties over the past year and Richard, who lives in Fulwood, has been a property solicitor for 20 years.

The firm’s Head of Residential  (back row, centre right) says:  “Feedback from clients suggest they welcome an experienced hand on the tiller when it comes to moving house and in response to this demand, Marsden Rawsthorn has expanded its team.

“We are well established and right on the doorstep for local people, with easy parking. The safest way to buy a house is by using an experienced professional for your sale and purchase.

 “If someone is buying a house, they want the keys as quickly as possible. We do our utmost to complete in the timescale our client wants but it depends on the length of the chain involved. Usually it takes four to six weeks but for a cash buyer you can probably get it done in a week.”

The firm helps with house sales and purchases, mortgages and re-mortgages, part-exchanges, boundary disputes, landlord and tenant disputes, parents contributing towards the purchase of a child’s house, joint ownership arrangements and more.

PRIVATE CLIENTS:  Wills, Probate, Trusts and Elderly Law

While it’s hard to contemplate what may happen in later life and beyond, making provision now is the only way to safeguard your family’s interests and ensure your wishes are acted on.

Solicitor Helen Gaskell, based at the Fulwood office, says: “We are here to help with writing a will, inheritance tax planning, probate and administration of an estate, lasting powers of attorney, a Court of protection application, asset protection and trust advice and preparation.”   Marsden Rawsthorn has a wealth of experience and not only understands the legalities but also the importance of trust, compassion and understanding. It is up to date with modern-day challenges for wills – ever thought what would happen to your online legacy, bank accounts, PayPal, social media, movie or music download accounts?  “We advise that somebody is authorised to handle the closure of digital assets just as with other tangible assets,” says Helen. Marsden Rawsthorn’s sensitive and practical approach brings peace of mind to issues that may affect you in later life.

FAMILY: Child isues, divorce and separation, domestic viloence, cohabitation issues

Sahida Ahmed became a lawyer because she cared about people. Now, several years on and the company director and Head of Family is even more passionate about what she does, having witnessed a vast range of family troubles and worse.

“You never have a dull day”, she says. “You do not know how things are going to unfold – you sometimes have to drop everything and attend court at short notice.”

Sahida and her team handle all matters relating to family breakdown, from divorce and separation to co-habitee disputes, financial issues arising from separation/divorce, pre-nuptial agreements and domestic violence issues.  She and her team deal with all financial and property matters relating to relationship and marriage breakdowns, including pension assests.
