Ideally looking for a lawyer who is based in or around
Ideally looking for a lawyer who is based in or around Chadwell Heath. There are a number of issues. My mum lived in a house that was in my brother's name. My dad bought my brother out of the house 20 years ago and died soon after. My mum paid the mortgage for the next 20 years. The house though remained in my brother's name. Just before she died recently, my brother sold the house. He won't say what happened to the proceeds, other than a third of it was used to buy another smaller home which is now part of my mum's estate. I want my vulnerable brother, who lived with my mum to live there. My mum died without a will. Do we have to go to probate or can we reach a private agreement which would allow my vulnerable brother to live in the house bought with the third of the proceeds. My other brother is telling the vulnerable one just to move in. I want to make sure it is all above board. This brother is known to be financially suspect. I believe that my brother and his wife, who have lived overseas for 20 years, illegally claimed child benefit for their eldest child. It was paid into an account they held in the uk. The vulnerable brother used this money for living expenses. They are now telling him he is liable for that money.

My wife is part of an organisation called Neighbourhood
My wife is part of an organisation called Neighbourhood Watch. Around October last year she became stressed by the tone of an Email she received from the Chairman of what is called South Division (he is an Ex police officer and councillor). I Emailed him and said that she had been stressed since he was appointed Chair, and that he should contact me to help resolve the matter, something he has not done.Instead, he has been spreading rumours about my wife, and has in my opinion tried to steal my Intellectual Property in the form of a database containing names and addresses, and the funds from the local Ilkeston Neighbourhood Watch by saying that he is in control of them. The constitution of Ilkeston clearly states the conditions for funds transfer and at a vote the members voted not to transfer.Over the last few months, he has emailed and spoken with the area (called DNWAT) chair making accusations of harassment against my wife. I am also aware that he is spreading rumours at the St Mary's Wharf police station amongst his former colleagues.My Wife and I believe that any actions we have taken are not only legal, but are upholding relevant regulations.I feel that the rumours amount to harassment but she is worried about going to the police as they are involved.There is a meeting next week where a number of matters will be raised. I am not sure of the best way to advise her.Best RegardsPaul H. Riley
I handed in my resignation yesterday from my part-time job
Hello, I handed in my resignation yesterday from my part-time job at a graphic design agency (I work 3 days a week there). When I handed in my notice my boss completely lost his temper and told me he was going to fire me anyway and then accused me of being a thief. They have since instructed me that I need to work one month's notice and that I have to work from home for this month, and after accusing me of stealing from them (which I am still not sure of what I have stolen) they have now emailed me today to say they are going to email me files to work. I am wary that they may be sending me their files in an attempt to make it appear that I have taken files from the office. This is a graphic design company that I work for. My boss was extremely abusing when I handed in my resignation to the point where he even kicked a doorstop at me. Not sure if I have any options here so seeking some advice. thank you

Bashford I'm a self-employed individual working for a
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm a self-employed individual working for a company A full term basis eight hours a day five days a week. The company I'm working for have provided a vehicle and vehicle insurance I provide my own tools and equipment. I'll pay for my own fuel and parking also.Recently I had my vehicle broken into. Two men drilled a hole through the back door in order to open the door and steal some of my equipment. The small drill hole that they left in the door meant that anybody would be capable of opening the door, therefore the door needed to be replaced. The company that employ me provided a contractor that would collect my vehicle and replace the door. Following this I have been asked to play a £750 excess on the insurance which I was unaware of. My employer insisted that I signed an agreement stating that I would pay this excess when I joined the company. After having read through my contract I have located the signed agreement. It reads :I agree that if I cause damages that result in a claim under any of my companies insurance policies then I will be liable for any excess on the relevant policy.I just like you to advise as to whether I am liable to pay this, as it clearly states any damage that I make and I did not make the damage, I have CCTV footage of two men getting out of a Mercedes and making the damage to my van to which I reported to the police.Any help you can give me regarding this matter is well appreciated.Regards,James.

I run a doggy day care business. A guy who worked for me was sacked for stealing. Now he has set a business up at his partners home and has poached a lot of my clients. I'm sure the council do not know he is running a business as they wouldn't issue a licence for 15 to 20 dogs in a residential area. and I'm sure he is mainly taking cash. I don't wish him to know that I will be reporting him. As he is not a nice character and I fear consequences. Who do I inform, the council or tax man or both?What can be done?
I hope someone can help me, I am selling a property and have
Hello,I hope someone can help me, I am selling a property and have had it on the market since June 2017, I had 2 properties on the market with one agent (A) who successfully sold one but I had very bad luck with the second, time wasters etc. I had negotiated a fee of 1% for the sale of both flats with this agent as I had originally bought both flats from them. Unfortunately as I was being constantly let down by buyers and the contract was up with agent (A) I went along to another agent for the same fee... But told agent (A), they could still find a buyer but on a week to week basis they were fine with this....... Agent (B) provided a viewing and the viewers were very interested they on the other hand did not make an offer but said they would go away and think on it, a week later agent (A) arranged a viewing and not known to me was the same viewers who had viewed with agent (B).... Needless to say and to cut a long story short agent (B) is not happy!... Agent (A) has secured the sale, got an offer accepted by me and been in touch with solicitors etc but Agent (B) wants me to pay them and not agent (A).... To stop the squabbling between the agents I said I would be willing to split the fee between them at the original 1%.....but this is not what they want... Agent (B) wants a fixed fee of £2250!.....agent A has not harassed me at all and have told me not to worry as they will go to court with the other agent if necessary as the other agent cannot claim the fee as the laws have changed.......... The effective introducing agent who closes the sale is the one who commands the fee, not an agent who just does the viewing.... Please can you just advise if this is correct as I'm very worried.
I suspect 2 employees are planning to set up a rival
I suspect 2 employees are planning to set up a rival company. Unfortunately I haven't given them contracts. Both worked for me for over 2 years. Because of my suspicions I set up a covert listening device whilst I was away for a couple of days recently and my fears have been confirmed. I have heard numerous references to what they plan to do, including poaching customers, copying sensitive information from my computer and even stealing parts from my stock before they leave. Things have already gone missing. They talk aggressively about me and my family. Can I use the taped evidence to dismiss them? Thank you.
