Making a will is an important decision but it is surprising how few people make one, despite the impact of how dying intestate can have on family and dependents. Our solicitors are experts in drafting wills for a wide range of personal circumstances and can help ensure your estate is left to the persons of your choice.

Lasting Powers of Attorney are important to have to ensure that should you ever lose capacity someone of your choice can make decisions on your behalf. Life is full of ups and downs and in the event of an accident or serious illness you will be assured any decisions about your health, welfare and finances are taken by someone who knows you and whom you can trust.

Every year billions of pounds are paid over to the state through inheritance tax. Forty percent of every pound above the inheritance tax threshold could be given to HMRC unless you take steps to avoid this consequence. It makes sense to give this money to the beneficiaries of your estate rather HMRC. Our inheritance tax planning solicitors have years of experience in assisting people with estates of all sizes and complexities to minimise inheritance tax, capital gains tax and income tax upon death.

After someone has died, the executors of the will need to make an application for a Grant of Probate (where there is a Will) to enable them to realise the financial value in the estate and pay off any debts before distributing to the beneficiaries.

Where there the deceased had a Will, the process of administering the estate of someone who has died is called probate. It can be a difficult time for the executors of the will because they are often family members and passing through a period of grieving. Probate can also be a complex process over significant timeframe. Our private client solicitors have experience in dealing with all aspects of probate on behalf of the executors and can take out all the associated stress.
