WILLS

  • Making a Will is vital if you want to be certain that your wishes will be met after you die.
  • A Will is the only way to make sure your savings and possessions go to the people and causes you care about.
  • You can decide in your Will who will take care of your children should you die whilst they are still young.
  • If you die without a Will your loved ones might have to pay unnecessary tax.
  • If you have a difficult family situation, we can advise on solutions to provide you with a fair and effective Will.
  • We have a wealth of experience particularly in dealing with Wills for people with complex land holdings or business interests.


LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY

  • Making a Lasting Power of Attorney allows you to choose someone to make decisions about your finances, property and personal welfare should you become unable to make decisions yourself.
  • Becoming incapacitated without a Lasting Power of Attorney could involve your loved ones in a time consuming, expensive application to the Court of Protection with ongoing requirements such as paying the Court regular fees and submitting an annual report.


COURT OF PROTECTION

  • Making an application to the Court of Protection may be necessary if a person is unable to make decisions about paying bills, managing finances or property when there is no-one with legal power to act.
  • An application to be appointed as a ‘Deputy’ for someone who has become mentally incapable of managing their affairs ensures a family member or friend is able to help and be involved in important decisions.


CARE FOR THE ELDERLY

What sets our private client team apart is that we are prepared to go that extra mile for our older clients. We provide home and nursing home visits. We are prepared to act as executors and attorneys for those without suitable family or friends or for clients who just prefer a professional to handle their health and welfare, financial and property matters efficiently.
