House hunters should be looking to secure a new home at a bargain price before house values start to rise and encourage other would-be buyers back into the property market.

The ELPG group of leading property solicitors says that, as the property market will be the first area to recover from the effects of the recession, house buyers have a limited time to purchase a home at a knock down value and face less competition for properties.

The group, which consists of Warners, Neilsons, Drummond Miller, Leslie Deans & Co and the Lints Partnership, highlights that the property market has historically been the first area to recover during previous recessions in the UK.

The way care services are organised in Scotland needs to adapt, not the people using them, according to Jacquie Roberts, chief executive of the Care Commission.

In a speech to the Care Commission Forum, Dignity in Care, Ms Roberts will argue against a one-size-fits-all approach.   Care services must be better designed around the needs and rights of those in care rather than people having to adapt to the way care services are run.

Supported by the Scottish Human Rights Commission and the Equality and Human Rights Commission in Scotland, the event highlights that everyone using care should be treated equally and fairly as an individual, have their rights respected and be allowed to live their life to their full potential.

The Government should act now if it wants to safeguard the affordability of property for key workers, according to one of Edinburgh’s leading property solicitors.

Responding to the latest research by the Bank of Scotland – which claimed key workers such as teachers and police officers could now afford to buy in 39% of Scottish towns – Warners said that it was likely that prices could become less affordable once the Scottish property market recovers.

The firm added that the Scottish Government should be considering ways to address affordability issues for key workers now, as it could be too late to do so when property prices start to rise in the future.

Scott Brown, Estate Agency Partner with Warners, said: “Housing is becoming more affordable for everyone, as prices have fallen over the past 18 months or so. However, it is important for the wellbeing of our communities that those in essential services can afford to live near their work if they wish to.

28-MAY-Dementia-ReportCare homes across Scotland need to significantly improve the care they offer to people living with dementia.

A joint report – Remember, I’m Still Me – by the Care Commission and the Mental Welfare Commission highlights a range of concerns, most notably the excessive use of drugs used to control behaviour and the lack of regular medication reviews.

The report also highlights a lack of staff knowledge about the life history and individual needs of people in their care and tells how many people rarely leave their care home – all of which highlights the importance of not ‘forgetting’ the person inside dementia.
