AFTER over 170 years in nearby offices in Warwick Street, Leamington Spa the Partners of Field & Sons and Overell & Swain decided to amalgamate to form the new firm of FIELD OVERELL. We believe our fees are reasonable and competitive and will be pleased to provide a free written quotation concerning conveyancing matters and Wills, on request. We can explain more complex matters at our initial interview. In relation to civil litigation it may be possible for us to undertake the work on a contingency or conditional fee basis. Please ask us for details of this. We would be happy to explain.

We appreciate the stresses and concerns caused by an accident and we aim to do our best to provide sympathetic legal advice and make the claim as easy and simple to understand as possible. Our team has extensive experience in the field of Personal Injury and our Mr. McCusker is an accredited Law Society expert Personal Injury Panel member. Mr. McCusker is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. We do not accept instructions from the type of claims management companies that you see advertising on TV and in shopping centres.
Whether buying a property and/or business or taking a lease either directly from a Landlord or from an existing Tenant we will guide you from start to finish so that your transaction is completed smoothly. Leases and tenancy agreements cover a range of situations including medium term leases of commercial premises such as department stores, office blocks and factory premises, shorter term leases of shops and offices and domestic leases for the letting of a house and short term tenancy agreements, agricultural tenancies, tenancies of allotment gardens and licences to occupy.
Everyone should consider putting in place LPAs to make sure that if you lose capacity to make your own decisions, others can make them for you. If you don't have a valid LPA and lose capacity, normally your loved ones would need to apply to court for a deputyship order to be able to manage your affairs. This can be an expensive and time consuming exercise, and the people that the court choose to act on your behalf might not be those that you would have chosen yourself! Many people also create an LPA to allow others to make decisions for them, not because they have lost capacity, but because it is difficult perhaps for them to get out of the house or if they find it all "a bit too much".
We can assist you with drafting employee contracts, informing you of your duties as an employer and advising you on the appropriate course of action in disciplinary matters. We can draft compromise agreements whereby terms of settlement are reached with an employee and you are protected from future claims. Employment claims can be extremely costly even if the employer is eventually successful and the stigma attached can affect the success of your business in the future. It is therefore important if you become the subject of a complaint by an employee that you attempt to resolve it expeditiously.
We are qualified in all areas of property law and can help you to avoid potential problems and protect your interests at every step. Whether you are buying or selling a property it is important to contact a solicitor at an early stage as there is always preparatory work which can put in hand which will facilitate the transaction and save time. We will obtain your deeds, which may be with the building society, bank or other lender so that we can let the buyers solicitors have a copy. This is to show that you have title to the property.
When someone close to you dies somebody has to deal with their "estate". A person's estate is considered to be made up of the money, property and any possessions they had at the time of their death. The process ‘Probate' means collecting any money that they are owed, settling any debts due (including outstanding taxes) and dividing the estate amongst the respective beneficiaries. This consists of establishing what the assets and liabilities of the estate are, obtaining a Grant of Probate (or Letters of Administration in the case of intestacy where there is no will) to authorise the executors or administrators to deal with the estate.
If you require a confidential consultation please contact Sverine Vincent on 01926 422101 or visit our contact page. Alternatively you can send a message directly using the contact form. If you cannot resolve matters amicably or through mediation, once the divorce has been issued, you may wish to make an application to the court to resolve the finances. The court will consider a number of factors and decide what would be a fair division of the assets. It may well be that your husband's share will be tied up in the property until your youngest child reaches the age of 18.
Field Overell LLP tailor make each and every will so that it is as unique as you are. We take into account your personal financial circumstances, family commitments, inheritance tax and any other complications that may arise. By making a will you will also have the peace of mind that your estate is administered with sympathy and efficiency as you can choose who is to have the power to deal with your personal affairs. We will cover the main issues in person with you either at our offices or if you are unable to attend our offices in the comfort of your own home.
