Clients come to us for Wills for all sorts of reasons. Some of them have substantial estates and need tax efficient Wills, or they are concerned that their assets should remain within the family. Other clients have smaller estates and are worried about the impact of care fees.
Some clients are not concerned about financial issues but have complex family arrangements. One thing that all clients have in common is that they want to have their affairs in order.
We will give you clear and practical estate planning advice. Not only do we draft Wills, but we also administer estates and trusts when people have died. Accordingly, we know how things work in practice and are able to provide you with options to suit your needs.
We do not expect our clients to have knowledge of Inheritance Tax or the laws relating to the administration of estates; that’s our job.
We also make it our job to ensure our clients fully understand the implications of their Wills, both in terms of tax and within the family. We use plain English Wills and will talk them through with you in detail before you sign.
Our Wills Solicitors are very flexible when it comes to arranging meetings and consultations. We need to have a face-to-face meeting with our clients, both to check that the person who is giving us instructions is, in fact, the person making the Will, and to check for any mental capacity issues which might affect the validity of your Will.
However, we can offer Skype or FaceTime meetings if it’s difficult for you to get into the office. If you live within 5 miles of the office, we may be able to visit you at home.
All the information which you provide to us is confidential. Our advice is followed up in writing for you to retain for future reference or for you to share with your family if you so wish.
We are experienced in drafting and administering trusts and can also act as professional Executors and Trustees.
We can also witness your Will signing and store the Wills on your behalf.
We specialise in bespoke estate planning advice and provide a personalised service rather than drafting your Will on an instruction and execution basis.
Our Solicitors are trained in dealing with vulnerable people or those who have early stages of Alzheimer’s.
We are a member of Certainty, the National Will Register. Endorsed by the Law Society, Certainty is the largest provider of a National Will Register and Will search service. Registering your Will is a useful part of the Will making process.
