Free Legal Surgeries in West Cumbria

Free Legal Surgeries in West Cumbria

Burnetts is running a series of free legal surgeries in West Cumbria. 

Burnetts is running three new Saturday sessions from its recently opened Cockermouth office, starting with a surgery for buy-to-let landlords on 21st June. 

The landlords’ support session will be hosted by Cockermouth solicitor Sian Spencer and Head of Property Recovery Rob Winder. Free thirty minute appointments are being offered to landlords with queries on issues such as tenancy agreements, tenancy deposit schemes, non payment of rent and problem tenants. 

Following the landlords’ surgery in June, Head of West Cumbria Tracy Stainton and the employment law team will be running a surgery on 19th July focussing on employment problems. On October 18th, Medical Law solicitor Lynne Hall will be opening the doors for people with concerns about the care they have received from medical practitioners. 

Tracy said, “We continue to run a full programme of briefings for businesses, but we also want to make sure that individuals can access the specialist services we provide for them. Earlier in the year we ran surgeries for wills and probate, family law and agriculture – for every event we had to bring in extra solicitors to cope with the demand. There is obviously a need for accessible legal advice so I’m confident that our next three sessions will be equally popular.”

Each of the Saturday surgeries takes place between 9.30am – 12pm. Half hour appointments are available. Whilst booking is not essential, it is recommended.  Appointments can be made by calling Suzanne Thompson on 01900 510366 or by emailing events@burnetts.co.uk. Further information on the surgeries and Burnetts’ other West Cumbria events, can be found at www.burnetts.co.uk/events
