Wanting to transfer ownership of property from my mum to me.

Called a solicitor for help cos the paperwork seems quite complex

"That will be Β£300 + VAT"  

 

Said he charged Β£180p/h

 

No wonder people break the law when it's the law blatantly ripping you off from the start!! 

Disgraceful Sainty

Everything legal carries a massive fee for little actual work and maybe not that much expertise.  It's a closed shop in a way that is no longer allowed in most industries.  Many MPs are drawn from the legal profession so naturally want to protect that closed shop. They're vipers!  In around 8 years all this stuff will be done by artificial intelligence.  There's going to be a massacre of middle and upper-middle-class jobs.

I've probably got on my soapbox before about this but can I add the overuse of the word "Guru"?  My local newspaper described local driving instructors complaining about a new bypass as "driving gurus".  Driving instructors are only "gurus" to learner drivers! People who can actually drive, couldn't care less about what they think!

 

My first (pretty rubbish) driving instructor used to puff on a ***** cigar while instructing me.  Second-hand smoke cancer guru, maybe but "driving guru", Nah!

There being an 'app' for everything!  I want to do something that will be a 0.02% influence on my life like Tesco Club Card Points or Ring security.  Ok, I get that these things provide a helpful service but back in bygone days, if you knew how to use Windows, Word and Excel then you were "IT literate", now you have to navigate yourself around endless narrow purpose badly designed apps and their settings which may or may not provide the outcome you want.
