First Time Buyers and Budget 2017

By Frances Nash Tuesday, 11th October 2016 | 0 comments
This Budget should be welcomed by the majority of the Irish people. It is not so much an austerity budget and is more about spreading the "wealth" and not the "pain" (Using these terms loosely!!!). One of the major changes that stands our for our clients would be for First-time buyers and will involve a 5 per cent PAYE rebate of up to €20,000 over four years on new homes worth up to €400,000. Buyers of homes costing between €400,000 and €600,000 will also be entitled to the €20,000, though the percentage of the purchase price this equates to will be lower.  As the housing market grows and the demand for houses is on the increase (and obviously with it, the price) this benefit for first time buyers will encourage and assist purchasers to enter the market. This is a welcome change for first time buyers. Note however, this is not available to purchasers who are buying for over €600,000, it is not available to landlords, it is not available to joint buyers.  It is available to persons buying their own homes.  Backdated to 19th July. It is a good measure which can help to bridge the gap between the deposit requirement and the price of houses.  It should very much assist first time buyers and open up the market.

Book of Quantum, 2016

By Frances Nash Tuesday, 11th October 2016 | 0 comments
The Book of Quantum is a publication under which the amount payable for a personal injury due to the fault of another is set out. It is used by the Injuries Board to assess a claim that might come before them.  The Book of Quantum that was used up until last week had not been updated since it was first published in 2004.   The awards stated therein were said to reflect the assessments that had been made either in court or in settlements agreed with Insurance Companies.

Depuy Hip Joints

By omahony Friday, 26th April 2013 | 0 comments
 Carl O'Mahony & Co. act on dozens of Depuy Hip joint cases.  We proceed on the basis of the supply of a defective product rather than on the basis of Medical Negligence. In our experience most people who have been fitted with faulty depuy ASR hip joints do not blame their doctor or consultant and therefore we process the claims against Depuy International on a strict product liability basis.

Medical Notes and Records

By omahony Tuesday, 5th March 2013 | 1 comments
 Carl O'Mahony & Co have no problems getting hospitals to release patients notes and records.  In the case of a public hopsital you send a Freedom of Information Requeste signed by the patient and for a private hopsital, its a Data Protection Request.  On receipt of these forms the hospital will write a letter of acknowledgement and advise that tehy will deal with the request in due course.  You then need to ring the records department 2 weeks later to get a name of hte person dealing with the query and a phone call should be made to that person every two weeks.  We at Carl O'Mahony & Co. find that we can obtain Hospital Notes and Records within 6 weeks of making the request 

Circuit Court Examinership

By omahony Friday, 1st February 2013 | 1 comments
 The advent of Circuit Court Examinership which applies to smaller companies with a balance sheet of 4 million euro or less has been welcomed by Carl O'Mahony & Co Solicitors.  The High Court system was expensive for small companies and often trade creditors made the biggest sacrifices only to end up paying fees for barristers and accountants.
