Wills & Probate
When somebody close to you passes away, knowing how to deal with their finances and their affairs can seem impossible. Our friendly, experienced team will be able to guide you through this, and provide you with the help you need at what can be a traumatic time.
If your loved one has not left a Will, the law dictates who will inherit their estate, and we will be able to explain what this entails.
Of course, to avoid any uncertainty as to who inherits your estate, and to make sure that those people you care about inherit your assets you should make a Will. We can help you with this process to avoid any problems for those closest to you when you pass away.
You may not know that if you are no longer able to make your own decisions about your finances, or about your own welfare, your family and friends will not be able to help you if you have not made a Power of Attorney. We can help with this and with an application to the Court of Protection if your loved one is not able to make their own decisions any longer.
Both Helen Wood and Rachel Cook would be pleased to help you with any of these areas and can give you initial advice to guide you.
