Wills & Probate
We can provide an efficient friendly service in the drafting of your Will. There are many complicated matters involved in the drafting of your Will. Many people are unaware of the importance of making a Will, for example if a couple are unmarried and have children and have not provided for guardians and transfer of assets to each other then this could have huge repercussions in the absence of them having made their Wills.
If you are married your wife may not automatically inherit the whole of your estate if you do not have a Will.
We provide a friendly interview giving full advice and arrange for the drafting of your Will to your satisfaction.
In matters of Probate and Intestacy (i.e. whether you have a Will or not), we provide a very understanding and sensitive approach and we can assist with the complete probate or intestacy case. Alternatively, if required by the Executor or personal representative, we can just advise and assist in the preparation of the appropriate oath that is required to obtain the grant of probate or letters of administration, leaving if required, the other paperwork to the Executors or personal representatives to keep costs to a minimum.
We can also advise on Powers of Attorney. A Power of Attorney allows you to choose a family member or friend you trust to make decisions on your behalf.
There are two types of Power of Attorney and the decision to make one, must of course be decided while you have the mental capacity to do so.
A Property and Financial affairs Lasting Power of Attorney covers the important decisions about your property and finances. This is why you need to choose a family member or friend that you completely trust and can rely on.
The second Power of Attorney covers vital decisions about your health and personal welfare. Again you must choose the relevant Attorney wisely.
