Q: My daughter has come back home after recently splitting with her boyfriend. They were saving for a house but on her own she does not have quite enough for a deposit and is unlikely to get a big enough mortgage based on her salary. I am in a position to buy a house for her, but I need a return on my money. Although I could just charge her rent I would prefer the house to be in her name. I am however conscious that I would need to protect my interest in the property as her circumstances could change in the future. Would formally setting up a private mortgage provide this protection?
Q: Now they have stopped legal aid for divorce cases, is there any reason why my estranged husband and I can't represent ourselves in court without using Solicitors? Our separation is quite amicable.

Anthony Danvers joined our Llangollen office in 2010, where he specialises in Will drafting, Wealth Management, Elderly Client Services and Probate work. He also handles some residential conveyancing work in both our Llangollen and Wrexham offices.
After gaining his first degree in Geography at Edge Hill College, part of the University of Lancaster, Anthony went on to read for the Common Professional Examination in Law at the University of Central Lancashire and later attended the College of Law in York. In 2000 he began work as a Paralegal with Countrywide Property Lawyers before starting a two year training contract to qualify as a Solicitor whilst managing the conveyancing department of a local high street firm.
Originally from Leicestershire where he helped his father on the farm in his spare time and was a keen member of Young Farmers, Anthony’s knowledge of rural and farming communities plays an essential part in the legal work he now does in North Wales.
Both Anthony and his partner are keen gardeners and enjoy travelling, particularly to Spain and to Egypt where Anthony can indulge his passion for Ancient Egyptian history. They also enjoy the Welsh countryside with their border collie, Ruby, and eating in and out with friends as well as the theatre and cinema. To counter his food indulgence Anthony is a member of his local gym, albeit, by his own admission, a somewhat lazy member.
