Our Elderly Legal Services
Legal processes are not straight forward and there is an increase in the reliance on technology. These factors can make undertaking any legal transaction particularly daunting and difficult for people of the older generation. Our experienced solicitors will explain the process and the options available clearly.
We offer advice tailored to the particular clients’ needs and circumstances so that they get the best service possible and a solution to suit them.
Mental capacity is an issue relevant to us all and our solicitors are used to dealing with vulnerable clients and their family members where the question of capacity arises. Our team always deal with matters in a practical and sensitive way.
Our office is easily accessible with onsite parking and ground floor meeting rooms. If necessary, we are able to make home visits within a 5 mile radius of our office.
We can advise on how to manage your affairs if you should lose mental capacity during your lifetime the best way to structure Lasting Powers of Attorney and to build in protective measures against financial abuse. We will assist with preparing and registering your Lasting Powers of Attorney for both finances and health.
We can help you plan how to distribute your estate through your Will, mitigate Inheritance Tax and to protect assets through the use of trusts after your death.
In the event a person has lost mental capacity, we can assist families with an application to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship order or a Statutory Will if the person is unable to make a Will or Lasting Power of Attorney.
We can advise on gifting assets or property and using trusts as well as care home fees. No-one wants to think that their estate might be swallowed up in care fees. But there are so many schemes around it’s hard to tell what will genuinely help, and what the risks are. We regularly advise clients who are worried about care fees. We can explain what your options are and the various pitfalls. Then you can make an informed decision about the way forward.
Our Experience with Elderly Legal Services
Our experienced team can deal with the whole process for you starting with your options and the advantages and disadvantages of each method before you make an informed decision whether to proceed. If we do not feel that a particular option is suitable for you, we will tell you so that you are not wasting your money.
We will not make false representations of what can be achieved. We will work within the parameters of the legal framework set out and in accordance with best practice set out by the Law Society.
