Probate - Making A Will
We offer a professional and confidential service to discuss all aspects of making your will and planning for your estate. We emphasise the importance of making a will as without one your Estate will pass in accordance with the Rules of Intestacy possibly excluding partners, unmarried co-habitants and step-children.
By making a will:
1. You decide what happens to your property on your death;
2. You can appoint guardians and trustees for your minor children;
3. You can change your will if circumstances change;
4. It gives peace of mind;
5. When making a will you can avail of the opportunity to seek tax advice or estate planning.
It is often a topic that people choose to ignore or postpone. However, we believe that it is an issue which people should give serious consideration to. We will guide you through the relevant details such as tax, statutory entitlements of next of kin and trusts. Wills can be changed at any time and we advise clients review their wills to take in changed circumstances.

Where the property of a minor or a person with reduced capacity needs to be protected it may be advisable to make that person a ward of Court. We can advise and make a Wardship application where necessary. It may be also necessary to make such an application where a person becomes of unsound mind without having created an Enduring Power of Attorney.
Enduring Power of Attorney
We have encountered countless problems facing loved ones where a person loses the capacity to manage and control their own affairs. We offer an efficient and confidential service in preparing an enduring Power of Attorney allowing you to appoint those whom you wish to manage your care, property, finances and affairs when you become incapable of making these vital decisions for yourself.
