It is important to make sure that your affairs are managed in a way that ensures your family are looked after when you die or when you are no longer able to manage things yourself. We can help.
It doesn’t matter what age you are, or whether you have any assets, it is important that you make a Will to ensure that when you die, your family is taken care of, and your wishes are followed. We offer a specialist Will writing service for a competitive fixed fee and our service includes advice on tax saving.
Our Private Client team understand how upsetting and difficult it can be to sort out a family member’s affairs after they have died. Often, there are complex legal issues that arise, and sometimes disputes that need to be resolved. Our team have many years of experience so you can feel reassured you are being advised by a sensitive professional.
When you have capacity, you can make decisions about your own affairs, but what happens when you lose the ability to make these decisions? We can help you put a Lasting Power of Attorney or a living Will in place, so that you know your wishes will be fulfilled and decisions about you will be made by someone you trust.
We will provide you with the advice and guidance you need to have the peace of mind of knowing that your personal affairs are in order should anything happen to you.
We offer home visits to any clients who are unable to visit us at our office.
If you die without having a will, your estate will pass in accordance with the rules of intestacy. This means that your estate may not pass to those who you want it to. We can help you put arrangements in place to ensure that your estate passes to the people who are important to you.
A lasting power of attorney is a way of giving someone you trust the power to make decisions about your financial affairs and/or health and wellbeing if you encounter difficulties that mean you cannot make those decisions yourself. A Last Power of Attorney is an essential document and we can help you put one in place.
