It’s never too early to draft a Will. However, it may prove costly if it’s left too late. If you don’t have a Will when you die then the State will decide how your assets are distributed, which can lead to increased costs and time consuming arguments on your death.
With a carefully drafted Will your estate will pass to the beneficiaries you choose and will be administered by the people you trust. Having a Will correctly tailored to your circumstances may also save you Inheritance Tax.
At a traumatic time we provide a sympathetic and efficient service dealing with all aspects of estate administration. We will complete the tax returns, apply for the Grant, collect in the assets and pay the liabilities. We will also prepare the estate accounts and distribute the estate to the beneficiaries.
When estate administrations are becoming increasingly complex in an area of ever changing law why take on the nerve-wracking task of administering an estate when we can do it for you in a timely and professional manner.
As we get older there are often important life decisions that need to be made. If you lose your mental capacity will anyone have the authority to deal with your affairs on your behalf? If not, an application to the Court of Protection will need to be made which could prove costly, time consuming and stressful for the family.
We therefore advise on the making and registering of Lasting Powers of Attorney so that you have the security of knowing who will look after your affairs and make decisions on your behalf should you be unable to do so.
