The Bank of Mum & Dad

After recently returning to Bartons after a period of maternity leave, Kristy Giles, Associate Director and Head of the Kingsbridge Property Department, has reflected on the changes to the legal profession in the last 20 years since she began as a junior. The Bank of Mum and Dad is now more prevalent than ever before and when mixing business and family it is important to take legal advice to ensure that future family harmony stays intact. Kristy can advise of the implications of entering into such an arrangement. Due to the increased use of technology, fraudsters are taking advantage of this and you will have read the reports of money being diverted away from its intended recipient. The advice from Kristy is to never transfer money to anyone without first speaking with them to check bank details. One of the benefits of instructing Bartons is that you can pop into our reception and check our bank details face to face and we can do likewise when sending money to you. Kristy can be contacted on 01548 855991 or for further advice.
