Our car broke down and the garage picked it up.

I live with my partner who bought the flat before I was with her. I am wondering if I can be put out of the house if she dies. She does not have a will, is legally still married but her ex left her (i.e this was the marital home) before I came to stay. Does he - the ex - have a claim on anything?

Having spent the last six months rigourously training alongside his other commitments, Austin has finally run in the Belfast Marathon. Austin completed the 26.2 mile race race in an admirable 5hrs 52 minutes: To put the distance in perspective, if Austin had set off from his Giffnock office as the crow flies, he could have reached Stirling, Ayr, Dunoon, Aberfoyle or Whitburn!

A FRIEND of mine's mother is in a nursing home and the family now have to sell her home to pay for her care. I remember reading an article some time ago that you can put the house into a trust and therefore it cannot be sold to pay fees. Can you enlighten me as to how one goes about activating this.
