Wills

If you wish to ensure that you those you leave behind you on death are financially provided for then contact us about making a Will. This is something which people are still reluctant to deal with. We can provide an inexpensive and straightforward solution to your concerns or worries in this regard.

As your lifestyle changes and your family grows up, it is most important to review your current Will to reflect your current circumstances.

Administration Of Estates

The existence of a Will allows your estate to be administered as per your wishes. This is a very difficult and emotional time for all involved. The Probate team headed by Partner Karen McQueenie can sympathetically deal with the administration of your loved one’s estate. Her experience can assist with the practicalities required like paying bills, assessing liability to Inheritance Tax and transferring property.

When there is no Will in existence we can give you the necessary guidance and assistance to administer the intestacy.

Powers Of Attorney

An Enduring Power of Attorney ensures that should mental incapacity arise that the person of your choice has legal authority to handle your assets and in your best interests.

A Power of Attorney must be drawn up and signed in a prescribed format. This is not an expensive or difficult thing to do but can save money and problems in the future.

Elderly Clients

As we are all aware the prospect of living longer is something we all need to consider. This can give rise to a number of concerns for the whole family. We can advise in a sympathetic and straight forward matter as to how to give you peace of mind in relation to the following:-

– ability to pay nursing home fees
– loss of mental capacity

We are pleased to provide Home Visits for elderly clients by arrangement.

Controlership Applications

Visits to home, hospitals or residential homes are all possible by arrangement at all times.
