Property disputes can be a nightmare. Not only do you stand the chance of losing a massive amount of money if you cannot prove that a property is rightfully yours, but you also are at the threat of having to uproot your life if you have developed and settled on the property in question. At the onset of a property dispute, your first course of action should be to try to have a mature conversation with the individual you are having the dispute with and possibly carry out a land survey to determine your property boundaries.
Welcome! My name is Jessica, and I work as a legal aid secretary. I am in awe of the lawyers in my office and the variety of cases they cover. From injury compensation to family court matters, they need to understand the law in a broad range of areas. As a legal secretary, it is often my job to research particular points of law or find certain cases for reference. It is a fascinating job and I work hard to keep up with the constant changes to our laws and legal processes. Friends and family often ask me for direction on legal matters and whilst I explain that I am no expert, I usually manage to provide sound advice. This blog is for people who share my passion for the law or who want to understand more about our legal system. I hope you find it engaging and useful.
