Wills, Trusts & Probate

We understand that even the thought of preparing a Will can be quite daunting, but preparing a Will is one of the most important and positive things that you can do in your lifetime and is the best way to ensure that your wishes are carried out as you might intend after your death. A Will protects your loved ones and minimises the financial worry during what is an upsetting and stressful time.

Allowing you to plan ahead

 

Planning ahead during your lifetime means that you can ensure that your estate is distributed properly and in the most economically advantageous manner. There are many types of trusts available for those who might wish to employ the same and we can advise on which is best suited to you, the tax implications and how a trust might be managed.

When a loved one dies, it can be difficult to address the practicalities of the situation, such as arranging the funeral. The time-consuming exercise of extracting probate, collecting in the assets, paying off debts and distributing remaining assets are all matters which we can resolve on your behalf.

 

Our Probate department offer a range of services, including:

 

  • Drafting and amending wills

  • Administration of estates

  • Powers of attorney

  • Trust administration

  • Grants of probate
