Wills, Estates & Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) in Essex

Nobody wants to think about their death or being unable to manage their own affairs but failing to plan for such events can often have unforeseen and expensive consequences which can be extremely distressing for those closest to you.

These matters need careful consideration and our Wills, Probate and Powers of Attorney Solicitor will be happy discuss your circumstances and requirements to make the process as easy as possible.

Making a Will is a quick and easy way of documenting your wishes. A will can ensure that only those you wish to inherit will receive gifts under your estate, and in the most tax efficient way. You can also appoint suitable guardians for your children in a will.

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) appoints someone to look after your affairs and make decisions on your behalf in the event that you lose the ability to do so.  The key is to enter into an LPA before any problems arise; delaying until you can no longer manage your affairs means an LPA may no longer be appropriate and will inevitably add to the complexity and cost of sorting out your arrangements later on.

Both Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney  should be reviewed periodically to ensure that they still carry out your wishes and intentions. If your life undergoes any significant changes such as marriage or divorce, your will and any LPA should be reviewed and if necessary modified to suit your new circumstances.

We can also help if you are dealing with someone’s Estate once they have died.  We can ensure that the Estate is administered in accordance with the Will and the relevant laws and we will guide you through the next steps you will need to take.
