Investment property

I had planned to buy some agricultural land in 2006 but I did not proceed as the price of land at the time was excessive. I believe that prices are now at a reasonable level and I would now like to buy some agricultural land. I would like some advice on the likely taxes I may have to pay. I bought 10 acres of land several years ago and I paid very high stamp duty at a rate of 9 per cent, has this changed? Are there any other taxes I should be aware of, eg Capital Gains Tax?

LEGAL MATTERS

I live in a busy local town and I am increasingly irritated at the excessive level of parking on footpaths. Whilst walking my young children I am obliged to leave the footpath and walk on a busy road because of the careless and inconsiderate behaviour of the vehicle owner. Is it illegal to drive on and park on a footpath? Please advise.

Employment law

I read recent media reports about an insolvent business which closed, leaving its employees short on wages. I fear that I may be in a similar situation shortly as my employer’s business is very weak at present. My colleagues and I are owed several weeks wages and I am concerned that my employer will simply be unable to pay my colleagues and I what we are owed. Is it true that a Government-backed fund exists which would come to my aid if my employer closes leaving me short on wages?

Payment Protection Insurance

Please explain Payment Protection Insurance to me. I took out a bank loan a number of years ago and I also availed of Payment Protection Insurance which the bank offered me. I was under the impression I was obliged to take out this insurance at the time. I recently lost my job but I am having difficulty in claiming through my Payment Protection Insurance.

Personal injury on holidays

I travelled abroad for my summer holidays this year on a “package holiday”. I was seriously injured following an incident at the apartment where I was staying. The lift in the apartment block failed causing it to fall suddenly and I sustained serious injuries as a result. Given that the incident occurred abroad can I claim compensation for my injuries? Am I obliged to issue legal proceedings abroad?
