Cadastral – Word of the Day


Source: Cadastral – definition of cadastral by The Free Dictionary

Not sure if this counts as jargon – is a word jargon if it is specific – and not used in mainstream speech (unless one is a lawyer or surveyor, land agent or other linked professional).

Seen in the following context

if the correct Portuguese formalities specifically identifying the property in the testamentary or other disposition by its cadastral references  have not been complied with, there will be an issue there.


Information sheets

I’m thinking about putting up some basic information sheets – these are the sorts of things that do not give specific legal advice, but more generic ones.

Sometimes it feels like I am explaining the same thing over and over again – and that although suitable for each client, it is not unique to each client.  It’s rather like saying “you need to wear a jumper, a cardigan or a coat”  rather than “you need to get a light blue silk scarf with images of cornflowers measuring x by y”.

Should there actually be any readers of this blog out there, by all means say what helpnotes you would like to see (that relate to wills, inheritance tax, and that sort of thing)  I am thinking about putting them up as separate pages on the side of the screen here.
