Wills are vital documents. If you need to make or change your will, we will be glad to assist you. Many of us shy away from making a will. Making a will can be a relatively painless exercise, with the appropriate legal advice and assistance. We will advise you on your obligations to your family members. If you have an underage child, you will need to consider the appointment of guardians. And remember, a will is never set in stone. You can review and change your will at any time.
If someone belonging to you has died, we will advise you on your rights and obligations in respect of their estate. If they left a will appointing you executor, we can assist you in getting a Grant of Probate authorising you to act as personal representative. If they died without leaving a will, you will need a Grant of Letters of Administration, and we can deal with this also on your behalf. When the appropriate Grant has been obtained, we will gather in the assets of the estate and represent you in the distribution of these assets to the beneficiaries in accordance with law.
Enduring Power of Attorney
An enduring power of attorney is a legal method of nominating the person you would wish to deal with your affairs, and perhaps look after you, in the event that you become incapacitated while you are still alive. By creating an enduring power of attorney, then if you become incapacitated, the person of your choice will have proper legal authority to deal with your property for your benefit. We will prepare and complete the enduring power of attorney for you.
