Legal Definitions by Ford Banks Irwin Solicitors - The Property Lawyers in Manchester

Please note: Not to be used or relied upon without legal advice. These notes are for illustrative purposes ONLY

Joint and Several Liability

Commercial Law Solicitors and Lawyers prefer to impose Joint and Several Liability on the parties to the Agreement.  This makes each individual liable to perform the Contract in its entirety.  


Joint Tenancy (cf. Tenancy in Common)

Property Law Solicitors and Conveyancers will discuss with the clients how they wish to hold the Property as Legal Owners. Tenancy in this context has nothing to do with Rent or Renting a Property. It only applies if there are Joint Owners.  Individual Owners of Property need not make this decision.  It affects who will get the Property if one of the Joint Owners dies.  If Joint Tenancy is chosen it means the Property will automatically pass to the surviving Owner on death.  If Tenancy in Common is chosen it means each person's share will pass in accordance with the Will or Rules of Intestacy in the event of death. The Solicitor will discuss with you the option of severing the Joint Tenancy at a later date if circumstances change.  

Judgment 

This is another word for the decision of the Court. Claimant and Defendant Solicitors will present the case or use Barristers for the advocacy.  The Judge may give his Judgment at the end of the Court Hearing or reserve time to consider the case and provide a written Judgment sometime later.  


Judicial Review

This is a procedure used by Solicitors and Lawyers to review the decision of public bodies.  See also Rule 54 Civil Procedure Rules. There are very tight time limitation periods applicable for Judicial Review Proceedings.  You need to consult your Solicitor as soon as possible.  

Jurisprudence 

Theoretical analysis of Legal Rules.  This is a good way to start a conversation with any Solicitor or Lawyer. 

Justice of the Peace

A Judge sitting in the Magistrates Court.  Solicitors and Lawyers often present cases before Magistrates in Criminal Law Cases and Family Law Cases.
