Solicitors’ aid buyers

A Matlock solicitor has issued a warning to home-buyers who “buddy up” with a friend or relative to buy their first home.

Lovedays Solicitors, in Bank Road, says failing to plan for all eventualities, even death, could leave you in difficulty in future.

Richard Roberts, Partner at Lovedays Solicitors said: “There is a high possibility that one party to the joint ownership’s circumstances could change.

“It is vital to consult your solicitor early on to cater for every possible change in circumstance.”
