We have substantial experience in this area and we advise on all aspects of Wills and Probate Law.
It is important to prepare your Will because it ensures that your property and assets (your “estate”) are distributed in accordance with your wishes when you die. If you do not have a Will, your estate will be divided according to set rules, which may not reflect your wishes. A Will also enables you to direct who will be Guardian of any children, and to plan your estate in a tax efficient manner. It is also significantly cheaper and faster for those left behind to administer an estate where there is a valid Will.
Administration of Estates- Grant of Probate, Letters of Administration etc.
We advise on the administration of a deceased person’s estate, and we take a practical and sympathetic approach to dealing the deceased’s Legal Personal Representative and relatives. We provide clear guidance and assistance to help them through this difficult time.
Enduring Powers of Attorney
We have significant experience in preparing Enduring Powers of Attorney, which allow you to appoint a person or persons that you trust to take decisions on your behalf if you become mentally incapacitated. If you do not have an Enduring Power of Attorney and become mentally incapacitated, the Courts can appoint a Committee to control your assets on your behalf. The benefit of having an Enduring Power of Attorney is that your property and assets can be managed in your best interests by the person(s) of your choice while you are alive but do not have the mental capacity to deal with them.
