Wills & Powers of Attorney


Wills & Powers of Attorney

When a person dies without having left a valid will, the law sets out rules which determine how the deceased's estate is to be distributed. Did you know that, if you are married and have not made a will, your spouse may not receive the whole of your estate? By making a will with us, you can be certain that the items of value to you are left to those you love and that your money and assets which you have spent your whole life acquiring are left to the people you choose. We can assist you with the following:-

Letters of Wishes
Severance of Joint Tenancy
Lasting Powers of Attorney
Advice on Care Home Fees
Inheritance Tax mitigation

We can also advise you on, and incorporate into your will, a trust which will enable you to split the value of your property, for the purpose of reducing inheritance tax and care home fees.




If you have been named as an Executor in the Will of someone who has died, or if you are the next of kin to a person who has died without leaving a Will, we can help you with the legal and practical obligations involved in dealing with the deceased's affairs, from obtaining Probate, to assisting you with death registration and funeral arrangements. And if you are struggling to manage any day-to-day, household tasks that may have been carried out by the deceased, we can also provide practical assistance to you personally, or put you in touch with specialists who can help you overcome any immediate difficulties. We can provide fixed fees and help you with:

Obtaining the Grant
Completing Tax Forms
Notifying Organisations
Post-Death Variations
Your own Welfare
Property Transfers
Sale of Property
Arranging House Clearance
Storage of Belongings
