GRAMMY®-nominated and Stellar Award-winning Christian hip-hop artist/songwriter Canton Jones makes an appearance on a remix version of The Showers 2015 Billboard Top 15 radio hit “Better,” and 2016's Billboard Top 25 song “Immediately” gets a revisit – both songs were written and produced by acclaimed musician Deon Kipping (Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Marvin Sapp). BET’s Sunday Best Season 6 champion and two-time Stellar Award winner Tasha Page-Lockhart adds her vocal production prowess on the track “Love,” produced by Stellar Award-winning producer Sean Keys (The Showers).

UK Expat Mortgages

Liquid Expat Mortgages

If you’ve previously looked at mortgages for UK expats you may have discovered that they were somewhat difficult to obtain.

When I first started Liquid the only options for UK Expats were big international banks. None of them had any real competition and as such they tended to cherry pick their customers”

— Stuart Marshall

OLDHAM, GREATER MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM, May 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — If you’ve previously looked at mortgages for UK expats you may have discovered that they were somewhat difficult to obtain.

What was also true was that they were thought of as expensive, not available to everyone and only a few larger lenders or international banks were willing to offer UK Expat mortgages.

Times however have changed and many people still are not aware that UK Expat Mortgages are available to a higher number of Expats than ever before and what’s more the choice available to them is wider and at the best value it has ever been in terms of rates and Loan to Value.

A UK Expat mortgage is a mortgage product for a British citizen who’s currently residing outside the UK and more often than not is usually working abroad.

So what’s changed?
Well a lot actually as a UK Expat could only get a UK mortgage –whether investing in a buy to let property in the UK, a UK family residential mortgage or a UK remortgage by taking out a bespoke expat product as a ‘normal’ UK mortgage required the borrower to be resident in the UK.

When the former chancellor George Osborne changed mortgage interest relief in 2015 many UK resident investors decided to buy property within limited companies. So as the personal Mortgage market started to shrink many lenders who didn’t lend to limited companies ended up creating new products and finding new product channels.

Stuart Marshall, founder and Managing director of Liquid Expat Mortgages has seen these significant changes and feels they have greatly benefited UK Expats worldwide.

“When I first started Liquid the only options for UK Expats were big international banks. None of them had any real competition and as such they tended to cherry pick their customers and the options they had were booth limited options and offered uncompetitive interest rates. We started to approach some smaller banks and building societies and showed them there was a market out there for products with high earning and high achieving customers who ultimately have proved to be excellent security.”

Since then Liquid Expat Mortgages has acquired more than 50 lenders all with exclusive UK Expat products. “There are over 5 million UK Expats living and working all over the world “Stuart carries on to say “and many of them have a foothold back in the UK such as an existing property, or they want to invest in the UK for a number of personal reasons.” Whatever your requirement there is undoubtedly a product that will meet your criteria.

Liquid Expat Mortgages have helped open the market to UK Expats and have helped lenders revamp their expat products. This now gives customers a wider choice for their individual expat mortgage requirements.

Recently, the New Jersey Supreme Court touched on issues related to PTI restitution and indemnification agreements. Jared Stolz, Esq. wrote a review of the case

Stolz & Associates, LLC (N/A:N/A)

for a restitution order to be proper, the court has to carefully examine the defendant’s ability to pay. Because the purpose of PTI restitution is at least in part rehabilitative …”

— Jared Stolz, insurance lawyer in New Jersey

FLEMINGTON, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, May 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New Jersey Supreme Court addressed issues arising from an indemnification obligation established as a condition in a pretrial intervention, in a case involving arson and subsequent insurance litigation. Insurance law attorney Jared E. Stolz reviewed the case in a published comment, available on his blog at https://jaredstolz.law.blog/

“Third-party defendant Dr. George Likakis was charged with aggravated arson and insurance fraud after a fire destroyed a residential building that he owned.” As part of the pretrial intervention process (PTI), Likakis was ordered to pay approximately $11,000 to Providence Mutual for payments it had already made to RSI Bank, the mortgage holder, and to indemnify Providence for undetermined future liability to RSI arising from the arson. Likakis paid the specified restitution amount during the one-year PTI period, but did not satisfy the indemnification provision as the litigation between Providence and RSI Bank had not yet completed. “With the prosecutor’s consent and with no discussion of the indemnification provision, the PTI court terminated Likakis’s PTI supervision and dismissed his indictment.”

In subsequent civil litigation, Providence sought to enforce the indemnification provision against Likakis in its third-party complaint. After settling the claim with RSI for $353,536.90, Providence sought to recover $243,890.60 on the basis of the indemnification provision. Trial court enforced the indemnification and appellate division affirmed.

Likakis’ argument at all stages of the appeal was that trial court lacked the jurisdiction to enforce the restitution order and that only the PTI court was authorized to enforce.

The Supreme court addressed two points in particular. First, in order for a restitution order to be proper, the court has to carefully examine the defendant’s ability to pay. Because the purpose of PTI restitution is at least in part rehabilitative, the restitution amount must take into consideration the ability to pay. Here, the open-ended order of indemnifying Providence’s losses obviously does not evaluate whether Likakis actually could pay such indemnification amount. Further, the record was entirely devoid of any examination of Likakis’ ability to pay the indemnification. In addition, the PTI proceeding terminated without any mention of the outstanding indemnification at the end of the one year period. Thus, the supreme court concluded, that Likakis had no obligation to make further restitution payments arising from the PTI agreement. The Supreme court also noted that PTI indemnification agreement was not admissible evidence in a civil litigation anyway. Therefore, trial court’s ruling was reversed and remanded.

The case presents many issues to consider for insurance law practitioners in cases involving PTI restitution and indemnification agreements, notes Mr. Stolz.

The case is RSI Bank v. The Providence Mutual Fire Insurance Company, (A-079116)

Women Elected as Speaker and Deputy Speaker by the TGTE Parliament. Rudrakumaran Re-elected as the Prime Minister!

TGTE's Elections Commission conducted Internationally Supervised Elections around the world to elect new Members of Parliament to its 3rd Parliament.

TGTE is the only transnational and elected Tamil political formation, to continue the Tamil National Struggle through democratic and diplomatic means and in a transparent manner.”

— Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE)

PHILADELPHIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, May 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) inaugurated its Third Parliament by convening its first Sitting on 17.19 May 2019, at the historic National Constitution Centre situated on Independence Mall in the city of Philadelphia. Members also joined the Sitting via technology mediated conferencing from venues in London, Dortmund and Sydney.

Following a solemn opening ceremony on the morning of the 17th dedicated to the memory of those who perished in Mullivaaikkaal 10 years ago at the hands of the Sri Lankan military, the Parliament completed the business of Members taking the Oath of Allegiance and the election of key officials. Secret ballots were conducted for electing the new Speaker, Deputy Speaker and the Prime Minister.

Dr (Mrs) Sarveswarythevi Thevarajah (USA) was elected as the Speaker and Mrs Rajanithevi Sinnathamby (Switzerland) was elected as the Deputy Speaker. Mr Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran was re-elected to lead the TGTE as it’s Prime Minister.

It is notable that the TGTE completed its Second term at the end of 2018 and its Elections Commission conducted the process of internationally supervised elections in different countries around the world to choose the Members for the new Parliament.

It is also noteworthy that the TGTE returned to the same venue in Philadelphia where it was inaugurated on the same day in 2010, as the first and only transnational and elected Tamil political formation, to continue the Tamil National Struggle through democratic and diplomatic means and in a transparent manner.

The 5th Annual Mullivaaikaal Memorial Lecture was delivered on the evening of 18th May coinciding with the Tamil Eelam National Day of Mourning to remember Genocide of May 2009. This year’s Lecturer was Ambassador Ladu Jada Gubek, former Chairperson of Sudan People's Liberation Movement’s USA Secretariat, former Chairperson of Southern Sudan Referendum Task Force USA, and currently the National Salvation Front (NAS) Diplomatic Representative to the USA and UN.

Amb Ladu gave an impassioned speech on the virtues of universal human values and the merits of the Tamil Nation to continue the struggle in its search for freedom with justice, drawing on his lifetime experience of being a freedom fighter, civil rights activist and an ambassador.

A number of scholars as well as activists addressed the Assembly and working sessions as well as a Town Hall event took place at the venue. Some of the themes taken up for discussion at the Sitting included The Easter Sunday bombings and Consequences to the Tamil Eelam National Struggle, creating new arenas for justice, Nation Building in the Diaspora and the Homeland, ‘Yes to Referendum’ People’s Movement and secession in international law. An evaluation of the pathways undertaken by TGTE to date in the search for Justice and Sovereignty was also discussed as background for the work ahead for the Third Parliament.

The TGTE Parliament unanimously passed a Resolution urging the UN Secretary General to request Sri Lankan Government not to use the current security situation after the Easter Sunday Church bombings as a pretext to commit human rights abuses against the Tamil people. A further Resolution calling on the Indian government to remove the ban on LTTE

The Prime Minister extended a special welcome to all women and youth who have come forward to join the movement and work for Tamil freedom and justice. As the TGTE moved into the third term, it’s democratic credentials as well as it’s performance in the many astute, transparent and timely projects in the political arena are here for all to see, he added, while impelling all to invest their energies and expertise towards the Tamil National cause.

The place of the city of Philadelphia in the spirit of American freedom and the reconvening of TGTE at the National Constitution Centre which serves as a national town hall for constitutional dialogue and civic learning, inspired TGTE to announce the setting up of a series of Tamil Genocide Memorials, on this 10th year of Mullivaaikaal. These would serve not just as memorials but as active spaces for learning for all Tamils, transnationally and trans-generationally.

That way, we would give further meaning to the words ‘We, the People….’ from the American Constitution, imprinted on the wall of the National Constitution Centre in Philadelphia, and rich in relevance to the Tamil People in their struggle for freedom.
