Wills, Probate, Elderly Client Care
Making a Will
If you have specific wishes about what happens to your money or property after you die then we recommend that you make a Will.
It is particularly important to make a Will if you are not married or are not in a registered Civil Partnership (a legal arrangement that gives same-sex partners the same status as a married couple). This is because the law does not recognize cohabitants (partners who live together) as having the same rights as husbands, wives and civil partners. As a result, even if you have lived together for many years, your cohabitant may be left with nothing if you have not made a Will.
Our costs start at £90 for a single Will or £160 for Couples (Mirror) Wills.
For more complex documents we can provide a comprehensive quote tailored to your needs.
Elderly Client Care
Our Mr. Robert Clarke is able to advise the elderly and in particular can answer your questions or concerns about the affairs of an elderly relative or friend in your care - this includes Lasting Powers of Attorney and Wills.
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document which allows you to appoint a relative, friend, or professional person to hold a Lasting Power of Attorney and act on your behalf.
We offer comprehensive advice on making a Lasting Power of Attorney, and can assist with the registering of the LPA at the Office of the Public Guardian.
