Writing a Will
Having a will is important to ensure assets are distributed according to wishes, name beneficiaries and executors, make guardianship arrangements for children, and prevent confusion and defaulting to the crown.

Probate can often be a complicated process that comes at a time when you are already dealing with a devastating event in your life. You should seek help from an experienced Probate Solicitor or Probate Lawyer.
Our wills and probate Lawyers have dealt with probate transactions across the UK and can support you, your family and your loved ones through this process and will provide an understanding and sensitive approach, ensuring that matters are completed quickly and efficiently.
Lasting Power of Attorney
A lasting power of attorney is a crucial document that authorises someone else to make decisions on your behalf if you lose mental capacity due to illness or injury. It isn’t just for older people, accidents and illnesses can strike at any age, leaving you unable to manage your affairs.
There are two types of LPAs: one called a health and welfare LPA, which covers decisions about medical care and living arrangements, and one for property and financial affairs. The latter gives authority over finances, like paying bills or selling property. Remember, setting up an LPA while you still have mental capacity is essential.
Depending on your individual needs and circumstances, trusts can be set up during your lifetime or as part of your will after death. Trusts aren’t just about passing on wealth. They also offer ways to reduce inheritance tax payments and provide asset protection against future risks such as insolvency or divorce settlements.
