Wills and Probate
Please select from the following services:
1. Drawing Up a Will
Making a will enables you to choose who will inherit
your estate. Not doing so may mean that your assets and belongings
are distributed in ways that you would not want.
To instruct us to draw up a will you need to either contact us
for an initial consultation or download the questionnaire attached
to this site for completion and forwarding to us. Initially you
should consider who you wish to benefit from your estate including
any specific gifts you wish to make. You also need to consider whom
you want to deal with your affairs in the event of your death.

2. Power of Attorney
You will need a Power of Attorney if you wish to grant another
person legal authority to act on your behalf now, or once you can no longer manage your own affairs.
To arrange such a Power you will need to contact one of our Solicitors
to arrange for the document to be prepared and signed. The person
who is giving the Power of Attorney will need to be mentally
capable of understanding its terms and effects at the time of granting the power.

3. Acting as Executor
Should you be appointed by the will of a deceased person
to deal with the distribution of his estate you will find yourself
'Acting as an Executor'. If no will has been made, you may wish to apply for a Grant appointing you as Administrator of the estate. There are rules laid down by the Court,
which you will have to follow in administering the estate.
Alternatively you could instruct a solicitor to act on your
behalf. To arrange this you will need to make arrangements to
discuss the matter with the solicitor and provide certain information.
