O'Hare Solicitors - Wednesday, November 22, 2017

From 22 November 2017 first time buyers paying £300,000 or less for a residential property will pay no Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT).

First time buyers paying between £300,000 and £500,000 will pay SDLT at 5% on the amount of the purchase price in excess of £300,000, a reduction of £5,000 compared to the amount of SDLT they would have previously paid,

A first time buyer is defined as an individual or individuals who have never owned an interest in a residential property in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in the world and who intends to occupy the property as their main residence.

First time buyers purchasing property for more than £500,00 will not be entitled to any relief and will pay SDLT at the normal rates.

Medical negligence case settles

O'Hare Solicitors - Tuesday, September 13, 2016

In a recent case involving Parkfield Hospital trading as the Birkdale Clinic and others, the Plaintiff had been transferred to the clinic for private treatment under the NHS in respect of knee surgery.  An operation and post-operative treatment was unsuccessful and our client was required to undergo further surgery to correct the failings of the earlier surgery.  Proceedings were issued and the case subsequently settled in the sum of £40,000.00, together with costs.

The case was further complicated by the fact that the Birkdale Clinic had gone into Receivership.

Despite these complications, this was a very successful outcome for our client with the significant award of damages compensating him for the personal injury and loss sustained following the initial operation.
