Wills: Who should make a will? What does a will need to contain? Can a Will be used to avoid payment of inheritance tax?
Probate: What exactly is Probate? When is Probate needed?
Intestacy: What happens if there is no will? Who inherits under the rules that apply?
Powers of Attorney: What are the changes made in 2007? How do I go about creating a lasting Power of Attorney? When should a Power of Attorney be registered?
Someone leaving a will is said to be testate. It may be necessary to apply for a Grant of Probate. If there is an intestacy (no will) an application to the Probate Registry for Letters of Administration may be necessary. Legal advice may be required about Inheritance claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.
LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that allows someone to choose other people who they want to make decisions or take actions on their behalf in case there comes a time when they lack mental or physical capacity.
We can provide advice and assist in the making of an LPA that deals with property and financial affairs. Before an LPA can be used it has to be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian. We can deal with the application procedure and ensure that any appropriate notices are properly served. If you have any concerns about the future management of your property and financial affairs then we will be happy to assist.
