Expert advice on Wills and Powers of Attorney in Romsey
While you are healthy and able, be sure to create a Will and make a Lasting Power of Attorney to minimise stress and confusion should you ever be unable to manage your own affairs. At Kirklands Solicitors LLP, we specialise in Wills, Probates, Lasting Powers of Attorneys and Deputy Orders. Our experienced solicitors help you prepare for whatever life throws your way, ensuring you and your family are aware and protected. We work with clients across Romsey, Totton, New Forest, Southampton and Hampshire.
Wills are essential for everyone, especially if you own a property and/or have young children. Our experienced lawyers can help you create and rectify Wills, ensuring your wishes are carried out after your death. We assist by drawing up Wills, appointing legal guardians, advising on Inheritance Tax and arranging for signing, witnessing and safe storage. If you have an older Enduring Power of Attorney, we're also able to assist with Living Wills, intended to reflect your wishes in medical situations. We do recommend cementing your wishes under a Lasting Power of Attorney as it carries more weight.
Our solicitors are able to assist with the administration of estates and obtaining a Grant of Probate. A Grant of Probate is obtained by proving a Will in Court and may be required as part of an administration. We can assist and advise on any Inheritance Tax liability and liaise with HMRC on your behalf. As experienced legal professionals, we simplify the Probate process to minimise distress and confusion.
Lasting Powers of Attorney
Our legal professionals can advise and assist on the making and registering of Lasting Powers of Attorney. Appointed to act on your behalf if you are unable to, your Attorney makes decisions regarding your property and financial affairs and health and welfare under your Lasting Power of Attorney.
We’re also able to assist your relatives with a Court of Protection application for a Deputy Order should you not have made a Lasting Power of Attorney and you are no longer able to do so.
