Making a Will

Why should I make a Will?

•  To leave your affairs in order for your family

•  To appoint guardians for your infant children

•  To ensure your wishes are carried out

•  To take opportunity of reviewing the Inheritance Tax Implications

•  To ensure the people that you wish to administer your Estate are appointed.

•  Care Charge planning.

How long will it take?

Making a Will usually involves one appointment to discuss your wishes and take your instructions. We then draft the Will prior to your next appointment when we will ask you to approve the Will and if acceptable we will engross the same and witness your signature.

We can either forward your original Will to you or we can hold the Will free of charge in your Will store and we will forward a copy in an envelope which will say where your original is held.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Lasting Powers of Attorney relate to Property Affairs and Personal Welfare. They can used due to the donor being out of the Country, being ill or unable to sign documents on their own behalf or just physically not being able to attend in person in matters relating to their Affairs. The Personal Welfare LPA relates to medical care, social care and ongoing treatments which enables your family to make decisions for you if you are not in a position to make them yourself.

We are happy to discuss any concerns you may have either by phone or by appointment.

Estate Administration

We administer estates for Executors and act as Executors for our clients who require this service. We cover all aspects of application for Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration, either carrying out full administration or making just the application on your behalf. Louise is happy to advise you in all aspects of estate administration, guiding Executors and beneficiaries alike. During the full administration we manage properties, arrange removals and arrange property and assets to be sold if required. The firm is happy to tailor our service to your requirements and are prepared to work to a fixed fee.
