Wills, Probate & POA Services
Whether you are planning for later life, need help supporting your loved ones, or are recently bereaved, Nairnsey Fisher & Lewis will give you the right legal help when you need it.
Making a Will
Making a will is one of the most important things you will ever do and it is a worrying fact that nearly 3 out of 4 people die without having made one.
If you die without having made a will, the way in which your money, property, treasured items and other assets will be dealt with is done strictly in accordance with the intestacy laws which are very strict and take no account whatsoever of your wishes or particular family circumstances.
Setting up a Lasting Power of Attorney
Many people are concerned about what will happen to them in later life in the event that they cannot make decisions for themselves through loss of mental capacity. With a growing elderly population, people are much more aware of the possible effects of Alzheimer’s, dementia, strokes and other conditions which can cause loss of mental capacity. A Lasting Power of Attorney enables the person making it (the donor) to give someone else (the attorney) the legal right to deal with his or her affairs.
Our Probate team can help you to deal with the estate of a loved one who has passed away. This can range from simply applying for Probate to dealing with complex estates involving the payment of taxes and the distribution of assets.
