How much of the property is worth, how much mortgages outstanding and how much is the bridging finance outstanding?
Is this a solicitor that you know are just one recommended by the bridging company?
Is there any possibility that you can pay the charges off and resolve the whole issue?
It is difficult to understand why you are not able to mortgage the property and hence, the background detail to the property the charges would be useful.
Then we need to know exactly what you want to know about this?
There is no Alan Lynch who is a solicitor at that firm listed on the Law Society website.
It may be that he is a new employee paralegal or legal executive but it would be worthwhile finding out his qualifications.
There is no legal reason why there needs to be sale to split the titles but the Land Registry may refuse to do it because they are extremely busy at the moment and they would see it is not necessary which in most cases it is not necessary.
With the application therefore you would need to justify exactly why this needs to be done.
The last email from Alan Lynch seems to confirm that he is able to do it.
If you were assured back in January that splitting the titles wasn’t going to be a problem and that it could be done without a sale, and if for some reason now it’s become problematical, then you have a claim against the solicitor for the advice that you received back in January.
Legally, there is nothing to stop you seeing your partner even with the child, and even while you are on the sex offenders register.
However Social Services would object to it and could threaten to have the child removed unless you were no longer part of the child’s life while you are still on the register. It is the nature of the offence which is problematical. The SOR covers a whole variety of offences not just to do with children.
If the family take exception to this, they can refer the matter to Social Services who can make things very awkward for you and your partner because they are, to be frank, paranoid. The child could be put on a Child Protection Plan or still removed.
I’m afraid that just because you are no longer on the register doesn’t mean that you are immune from monitoring or action although with 17 years of no further offences. Just make sure you and your partner cooperate fully with Social Services.
It might be an issue that you want to raise with them before the family start making accusations.
Beware that there may be an element of “fabrication” with any reports they make to Social Services.
With regard to the fact that you may no longer be on the register but the family have found out, there is actually no action that you can take in that respect.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Please don’t forget to rate the service positive.
It’s an important part of the process by which experts get paid.
It doesn’t cost you extra but helps me greatly.
We can still exchange emails with you with.
