Family law: Agreeing if your child should receive the Covid-19 Vaccine

September 21 2021

At the time of writing, the government has announced that children aged between 12-15 and 16 and 17 years can have the Covid-19 vaccine.  It should also be noted that if taking a child abroad for a holiday you will need to check the entry requirements for that specific jurisdiction. Currently in the UK, the only children aged 12 or above who have a very high risk of exposure and serious outcomes have been invited to have the vaccine until now. It may therefore be a possibility that in the near future you may have to decide whether or not your child should have the Covid-19 vaccine (or any other kind of vaccine).

Probate disputes and how to avoid them

Probate disputes arise when there’s a disagreement over the administration of someone’s estate when they die. This could include a dispute over the value of assets, the interpretation of a Will or dealing with difficult executors.

Probate disputes are on the rise and there are a number of reasons for this:

  • With an increase in second marriages, families are now more diverse than ever. Where couples have separated and then merged with new families, the cross-over can cause conflicts
  • An increase in life expectancy means people are making Wills, or changing them, at an older age. This can lead to concerns that they weren’t in the right frame of mind at the time
  • With property prices higher than ever, people’s estates are worth more. Generally, the more money there is at stake, the greater the likelihood of a dispute

Property disputes: evicting a residential tenant

Whether you are a landlord with a property portfolio or you have a second home to rent out to tenants, property can be a great way to make an income.

Just like any business, however, renting property is not without its challenges. One of the more stressful aspects is dealing with evictions. Nobody ever wants to be in the position where they are forced to evict a tenant but sometimes, you are left with no choice.

If you do need to evict a residential tenant, it’s important to follow strict procedures. Failure to do so could result in you being found guilty of harassing or illegally evicting tenants. Read more on checking whether you have grounds to evict your tenant
