Making sure your money and property are distributed to the correct people after your death is only possible with a Will.
We can prepare a Will and organise your affairs in the most tax efficient way.
We can obtain a Grant of Probate and help with the administration of a deceased's estate, specifically resolving all claims and distributing the deceased property and money under a valid will.
If the deceased did not make a will then they are deemed to die intestate. We will obtain Letters of Administration and deal with the distribution of the deceased estate.
Claims under the Inheritance Act
You may have a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, if you can show that you were dependent on the deceased at the time of death. If you are successful, the Court can make a variety of orders, which effectively rewrite the Will or the Intestacy Rules to ensure that reasonable financial provision is made for you.
We can also act for you if you are to defend a claim.
Lasting Powers of Attorney
Lasting Powers of Attorney enable you to choose someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf regarding your finances, property, health and welfare, should you lose your mental capacity.
Court of Protection
We can assist in making an application to the Court of Protection for people who lack the capacity to make specific decisions due to reasons such as dementia, disability, stroke, mental health or head injury.
Leases, Lease Extensions,
Business Contracts and Purchases
We are able to advise on a range of disputes. If negotiation fails we look at the possible benefits of mediation or some other form of alternative dispute resolution and as the last resort a formal application to the relevant Court or Tribunal.
We advise on:

Possession proceedings/occupation of land
Disputes over Wills and claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975
