We will guide you through putting your Will in place or advising you on updating of your existing Will and inheritance issues and options available to you in dealing with your estate to ensure that your assets pass to the correct people on your death.

We understand that the times following a bereavement can be distressing and we offer sensitive and practical assistance, whether the deceased had a Will or died intestate. We also assist clients in dealing with the administration of the estate after probate has been obtained and the release of assets for the beneficiaries.

We assist clients in putting in place Lasting Powers of Attorney. These appoint an attorney (donee) to deal with your property and affairs, including your healthcare and welfare should you lose your mental capacity to mange your finances. We provide advice on the implications and the use of Lasting Powers of Attorney and assist in the preparation of the necessary documentation and registration with the Office of Public Guardian.
Where there are no Lasting Power of Attorney in place and where your loved one has lost his/her mental capacity to manage his/her own financial affairs, we can assist the family member(s) in making an application to Court for the said member(s) to be appointed as the deputy(ies) to manage the finances, property and affairs of the mentally incapacitated loved one.
