MSB Blog - The Verdict
On the first Friday of every month, a member of our dispute resolution team attends a drop in service at our local Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) in Liverpool city centre.
 
At the drop in service, we provide free advice to consumers in relation to an array of legal issues.
 
We recently met with Mrs M who had a dispute with Harveys The Furniture Store (Harveys) in relation to a defective sofa.

We recently received last minute instructions to defend a claim brought by Lowell Portfolio 1 Ltd (Lowell’s).
 
The claim was based on an alleged agreement between our Client and HFC Bank Limited which was regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (CCA 1974).  The agreement was subsequently assigned to Lowell’s.
 
Prior to the assignment of the alleged agreement, our Client submitted a request for information pursuant to section 77 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974.  The request was accompanied by a signed cheque for the sum of £1 representing the requisite statutory fee.

Crowdfunding is here to stay

Mark Forman is commercial partner at MSB Solicitors in Liverpool and deals with commercial law; commercial litigation and employment matters.

As any entrepreneur will tell you, getting a business idea off the ground isn’t easy - there are challenges along every step of the way. Who are my audience and how can I best communicate with them? How can I anticipate, and importantly achieve growth? And of course, how can I finance my business through the early stages?

In 2009, a new concept grew from the US and gave entrepreneurs and business owners across the globe an alternative option for raising investment. Crowdfunding affords enterprising individuals a platform to access millions of would-be investors, and enables individuals to group together to invest into a business opportunity that they would not otherwise have been able to.

Statistics indicate that around 95% of business plans are thrown out when they reach the investment phase, with creative, artistic and charitable sectors being among the most affected. The crowdfunding model then, was much welcomed by many.

Landlords beware!

Landlords in England are being warned that changes set to come into play from Monday (6th April) must be incorporated into all existing and future tenancy notices and agreements to ensure they are properly protected in respect of rights to possession, according to Section 8.

This means that from this date, any notice must be served using Form 3 of the Assured Tenancies and Agricultural Occupancies (Forms) (England) Regulations (SI 620/2015).  A copy of the regulations can be found here http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2015/620/pdfs/uksi_20150620_en.pdf
