Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Probate and Elderly Client Work

Wills

Everyone should have a will to ensure that assets are distributed in accordance with the wishes expressed in a Will. If a person dies without a Will, their wishes may not be carried out and they can leave complicated problems for their family to deal with. We offer a fixed price service for single Wills and mirror Wills.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Appointing attorneys to help deal with your affairs at the point at which you are no longer able to, is something that everyone should consider. Attorneys can be appointed to look after your property and finances; and to make decisions relating to your health and care. The role of an attorney is to act on your instructions, or if you no longer have capacity, to act, as if they were you; and always in your best interests. We offer a fixed price for setting up and registering Lasting Powers of Attorney.

We are happy to make home or hospital visits if you are unable to come to us.

Probate

We can deal with all aspects of Probate work.

Dealing with even the most straightforward estate can be daunting and can generate large amounts of correspondence with asset holders and government departments.

We offer a range of services from a stand alone grant of probate application to full estate administration, which includes winding up the estate, distributing assets and dealing with any taxation aspects.

How much will it cost?

We charge £250 + VAT per hour for Probate and Intestacy work. We do not charge an uplift for care and conduct or value elements. Typically for small to medium size estates, total costs on average are between £1,500 and £5,000 + disbursements which average £250. These figures exclude VAT. Normally an estate can be fully wound up within 12 months.

All types of work in this area will be carried out by Dominic Kelly, or Jill Owens, both Directors in the firm.

Please contact Dominic Kelly, Jill Owens or Valerie French by email or telephone for further information or to arrange an appointment.
