The Return of the House Purchaser

It's official, the majority of people in a position to do so, are considering purchasing a new house over the next two years. This is obviously good news, for not only the construction industry, but also the government, and professions such as architecture and law. It would seem to be the case that potential purchasers feel that the housing market has not yet hit the floor, if it hasn't, I believe it's fairly close to it. Newspaper reports suggest that the purchasers will return to the market once they perceive value in same. However, all this optimism will come to naught unless the banks in Ireland, start doing their job and start lending to people on reasonable terms. It seems a shame to me that many first-time buyers with solid employment are encountering...

National Children’s Hospital

Tallaght Hospital, is a vital resource to not only the community of Tallaght, but the greater Dublin community. On occasion we are asked to visit the hospital to prepare wills for gravely ill patients or swear documentation for sick people who cannot attend the local solicitor, we are happy to provide the service. Each time I visit the hospital I'm impressed by the care, professionalism and optimism of the staff who no doubt are working under increasingly difficult circumstances. If we are to have a new National Children's Hospital, and I believe that this will happen, surely the Tallaght Hospital site proposal should be considered....

I'm delighted that Tallaght and District Credit Union have agreed to allow me place a link from our website to theirs, I hope to have this in place in...

Business Agreements

Business Agreements

It never ceases to amaze me how businesses big and small do not carry out appropriate searches on customers before entering into accounts with them. You'd be surprised how often business clients come to my office seeking to recover debts from delinquent account holders without even basic information regarding the legal status of the account holder to begin with. It also seems to be usual for businesses to enter into accounts with limited companies without obtaining a personal guarantee from the directors of the company. In short, if you are considering supplying any business, it makes sense to carry out searches on the business, including credit searches, one should also have well drafted terms and conditions signed by the proposed...
