Probate:

 

When someone close to you dies we know it is an extremely distressing time for you.

We have many years experience in administering estates and we are here to help.

We will always try to provide an accurate estimate of the likely cost involved from the outset and, if instructed, will deal with the process of winding up your loved ones estate as smoothly and painlessly as possible.

 

Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection:

 

We can provide you with a simple Will from £95 plus VAT.

Making a Will provides you with the piece of mind that after you’re gone those people who you want to benefit will inherit your estate.

Arguably everyone who makes a Will which will deal with your assets after your death should at least consider making a Lasting Power of Attorney which will enable someone you nominate to deal with your property and affairs while you’re still alive if you reach the stage where you are unable to manage your property and affairs yourself.  You can also appoint someone to deal with your personal welfare should you reach the point where you lack mental capacity.

Unfortunately once it has been established that you lack mental capacity the only way anyone can then step into your shoes to deal with your financial affairs is by being appointed as a deputy by the Court of Protection.  This is a much more complicated and costly procedure than granting a Lasting Power of Attorney.

We can provide you with a fixed fee quotation starting from £375 plus VAT to provide a Lasting Power of Attorney for you.   Please note this does not include the fee payable to the Office of the Public Guardian to register the application.

Power Scott has a contract with the Legal Aid Agency for the provision of publicly funded services.

Legal Aid may be available – please ask.

In addition we operate a free legal surgery each Tuesday and Wednesday between 4.00 and 5.00 p.m. and Thursday 10.00 a.m. until 11.00 a.m.  Please ring to make an appointment.
