For many people making a Will is something to be done when you get older. Often it is left too late and your loved ones are burdened with resolving your property and personal affairs.

Making a Will enables you to:

  • Ensure that your property and possessions are inherited by the people you choose
  • Appoint Executors to deal with your affairs
  • Appoint guardians to care for your children and create trusts for them
  • Possibly reduce Inheritance tax on your death

We can also help with the preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorney should they be required during your lifetime to appoint individuals of your choice to assist you with property, investments and bank accounts and if needed health and welfare. Click here for more information

If you are dealing with the affairs of a loved one who did not make a Power of Attorney, we are help you with the complicated process of applying to the Court of Protection for a Deputy Order.
