We are available when you are and where you are. Including weekends and evenings, your home or ours.
Dealing with the estate of a loved one when you are only just starting to grieve is a very daunting process, for most people.
We give clear and immediate advice so that you can spend your time concentrating on the more important things, such as looking after yourself and being with your friends and family.
No one estate is the same, so it is important that we keep you up to date and informed throughout the process. We will also deal with the estate in as fast a time as possible, even if it is complex.
We offer a comprehensive advice, estate planning and Will drafting service.
A Will is a very powerful document which can serve for many years into the future, with little knowledge of your surrounding personal circumstances at the time of your death.
It is vital, therefore, that you take the appropriate steps to ensure that you have received accurate and relevant legal advice to enable you to make the best available decisions, which will have considerable impact to those you leave behind.
We make sure that we look at your own individual circumstances and those of your wider family, to ensure that your estate plan is not only tax efficient but practical and long lasting, as well.
Whether you already have a Trust in place or are looking at setting up a Trust, we can advise on the legal and administrative requirements.
We also advise as to the range of options available, the pro’s, con’s, pitfalls and of course, ultimately, if it is sensible for you to be putting a Trust in place, at all.
We can put in place any Trust documentation, including setting up, administration or termination of Trusts. We also complete Court applications in relation to Trusts and Trustees.
Lasting Powers of Attorney, in particular, have become an essential part of forward planning for any person, regardless of age. We provide full advice on the implications and practicalities to make sure that the documents work for you and your Attorneys, as and when the time comes when they may need to be used.
Putting your Lasting Powers of Attorney in place helps protect against future fraud and we advise on other steps to help protect you and your assets.
We specialise in capacity, provide assessments and practical advice to help you and your loved ones. This can be especially supportive where a family member or friend is losing or has lost their capacity and you do not know where to turn.
We deal with all other aspects of Lasting, Enduring and Ordinary Powers of Attorney, including Lasting Powers of Attorney for Business.
It is unfortunately becoming an increasingly common event that a person has not made appropriate provision for losing their mental capacity in the future.
They require assistance to be able to look after themselves and deal with day to day issues. The person taking over responsibility must have the legal authority to do so.
Applying for a Deputyship Order, Statutory Will or alike can be very intimidating, particularly as you are already likely to be spending a great deal of your time caring for that person.
We advise, draft and complete the process for you so that you are able to obtain the relevant Order as quickly as possible.
