Our Wills and Probate Practice group has a vast amount of experience dealing with all issues relating to Wills, Probate, Trusts, Lasting Power of Attorney’s and Estate Administration matters.

Our Wills & Probate Solicitors can assist you in protecting your interests and give you the peace of mind knowing that your Estate is taken care of when you pass away. Our Wills & Probate practice offers a personal and friendly approach assisting all our clients, especially the recently bereaved, in planning and managing their affairs most effectively in a wide range of family, financial and business situations. We will discuss your family and financial situation with you and advise on the suitability of executors, guardians for your children and trust provisions, anticipating changes which will inevitably occur over the years.

Why Do You Need a Will?

  • To make sure the right people receive what you want them to receive
  • So that you get the funeral that you want
  • Your children have the right guardian 
If you are living with your partner and not married a will is essential to make sure your partner can stay in the house after you die and receives the money you want him/her to receive. A well-considered Will can also reduce the amount of inheritance tax payable on your estate and will also try to anticipate future problems or challenges and be written so as to make absolutely clear your instructions on such matters.
 
We offer both flexible pricing and or fixed fees for all of our Will writing services.
 
We offer wills drawn by solicitors at fixed prices:
Single Will (Basic Will) *£300.00 plus VAT
Wills for couples in identical or near identical terms *£500.00 plus VAT
 
Complex Wills will be charged on an hourly rate of the solicitors. Please complete the enquiry form for a quote.
 

Lasting Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection

Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA’s) came into force in 2007 to replace Enduring Powers of Attorney, and are designed to make appropriate arrangements for family members or trusted friends to be authorised to make decisions on the Donor’s behalf when they are unable to do so (for example following a stroke, or suffering from dementia) They are divided into LPA’s for Business, Property & Finance and Health & Welfare, thus covering every aspect of the donor’s life should they become temporarily or permanently unable to make decisions for themselves. They MUST be made whilst the Donor still has the ability (the “capacity”) to decide to whom to give the powers, otherwise a different process must be followed, applying to the Court of Protection for Deputyship Orders. These are made after a person has lost the capacity to make decisions and are necessarily more complicated and time consuming. Our team of solicitors can assist you with either application, advising you as to the best options regarding choosing who your Attorneys are, and how they should act.

  • Wills 
  • Disputed Wills
