If you are involved in financial dealings with family members whether by way of loans or dealings involving real estate, you must ensure you have any agreement properly drawn up where each person actually receives independent advice on whether to proceed with the agreement.
We are presently involved in litigation in multiple cases where there is either no written agreement or there is an agreement that was not independently advised and the only certainty about those arrangements is that there is now litigation that is costing everybody involved hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees.
If you wish to avoid the expense and uncertainty of litigation, before you proceed with any arrangement or agreement with family members, please contact one of our Solicitors.
