There are many Dublin solicitors, but at Anthony Joyce we believe we’re one of the best. We can help you with any legal matters you encounter. We are experienced in dealing with:
- Buying or selling property
- Wills and probate
- Personal injury compensation claims
- Employment law
There are other matters Dublin solicitors like us could help you with, and generally it’s safer to use our expertise than try to deal with a legal situation yourself.
The Training Of Dublin Solicitors
It takes a lot of hard work and commitment to become one of the best Dublin solicitors. Even a law graduate has three more years training after university. If they graduate in another area then the training can take four years. If you’re not a graduate then you are facing six years of hard work and studying.
Once qualified as a general solicitor you may decide to specialise in a specific area of law, and this can involve more studying. This is where students with a law degree can have an advantage, because they get a closer look at all the different aspects of legal work, giving them a better insight into what area they may want to specialise in.
A few will decide they want to progress even further and take on the challenge of becoming a barrister. This requires extra subjects to be studied, they also need to work with a Master (an established barrister) for at least 12 months, in which time it’s very unlikely they’ll earn any money.
It might feel as though solicitors in Dublin charge a lot for their services, but all of the training they have to undergo makes using even a newly qualified solicitor a much better proposition than trying to navigate the legal system yourself.
Many people think they can prepare their own will simply by writing their wishes down and signing the document. However, to ensure everything goes exactly where you want it to, and to limit the financial implications for your heirs, estate planning is an essential part of how you organise your will.
There can be lots of legal consequences of an inheritance, whether it’s actual money, property or other assets. Wills and probate planning will not only ensure your heirs receive as much of their inheritance as possible, but will put a plan in place to handle all the legal matters when the time comes.
The whole area of wills and probate law can be a minefield, and the stress of losing a loved one is more than enough for the parties involved to deal with. Using one of the best solicitors Dublin is the best course of action to help ease the burden of what will be a difficult time.
Purchasing a property might seem an easy prospect, but it can be full of dangers that could end up costing you a lot of money. It starts off easy enough. You search for properties till you find one in your price range in the area you want to live. Then you have to make sure you have the money in place. Have you got the cash or are you raising a mortgage?
Then it starts to get a bit more complex. Is the Property leasehold or freehold? What sort of title does it have? Are there any access issues? Has a Planning Search been completed to find out if there are any building proposals in the pipeline? Has a Compulsory Purchase Order Search been completed to make sure the local council is not about to take the property from you?
All these things need sorting out before the contract is prepared in case there are any potential issues. If everything is okay you can progress to the next stage, preparing the contract, which should only be done by an experienced professional. Once that has been agreed and you reach the day of closing there are more searches that need to be carried out as late as possible, including:
- A Land Registry Search
- A Judgement Search
- A Bankruptcy Search
- Sherriff and Revenue Searches
- Registry of Deeds Searches
If all these searches are returned without any problems, you are almost ready to move in. There will be costs involved other than the property purchase that will have to be paid. You will have to pay stamp duty, which is dependant on the value of the property, as well as search fees, registration fees and solicitor’s fees. Dublin solicitors are very competitive in the market, as well as having the experience and expertise you need for a smooth property purchase.
