There are many reasons why it is important to make a Will. Our specialist solicitors will help you make a clear and comprehensive Will in which you appoint a trusted person or people to carry out the wishes expressed in your Will. You can choose the most appropriate people to receive your various possessions and the residue of your estate generally, and you can provide for any animals which you may have and which may outlive you. You can also indicate the reasons why you may not be including someone as a beneficiary.
Our experience can help you take advantage of the various ways Inheritance Tax may be minimised using exemptions, tax free gifts and trusts.
We can help in the administration of estates which is often a long and complicated process. This would include arranging for mail redirection, the clearance of furniture, valuations of assets, calculating and settling Inheritance Tax, arranging for the sale or transfer of shares and other investments and property.
Deeds of Variation are still available to families in cases where Wills have not been particularly tax efficient by the time the person who made the Will has died, or when family circumstances have changed, or the law has changed. Our experience of dealing with these matters can be valuable to you.

There are several different types of Trust that can be used to protect a fund of money, or to protect a vulnerable individual financially, or to mitigate Inheritance Tax. We can advise on Trusts and help you establish a Trust Fund, and assist with drafting Settlements and by helping with their management.
If you are unable to come to the office one of our specialist solicitor will bring our advice to you, where you can discuss your needs in the comfort of your own home. As well as helping with all the above, we can also advise on Powers of Attorney and dealing with the Office of the Public Guardian.
