Using our specialist knowledge of property, trust and tax law, we can cater for a number of different possibilities and prepare the will to maximise the benefit to your chosen beneficiaries and give you peace of mind that they’ll be taken care of financially.
We take a proactive approach to will writing, acting in our clients’ best interest at all times, to prevent potential issues arising further down the line, and we fully involve the client and their other advisers in the process to ensure everything is joined up.
We understand that all families are different and our advice is individually tailored to your specific circumstances. We are also able to advise on protecting vulnerable beneficiaries, whether they are adults or children, from previous relationships whilst also giving protection to a current partner.
We are proud to be members of Certainty, the national will register, and are able to offer registration of the location of your will on this national register to ensure that it can be located and acted upon after death.
Have you considered who would manage your affairs if you became mentally incapable of handling matters yourself? The simplest way to ensure that someone of your choice is able to take care of matters on your behalf, if you are unable to do so, is to draw up a power of attorney.
What happens if your relative has lost mental capacity, but there is no power of attorney in place? You need to apply to the Court of Protection for deputyship.
The specialist solicitors in our wills, probate and trusts team can take away the burden of obtaining probate and help you ensure the wishes of the deceased are followed.
