About us

A little more about us

We have been assisting clients for over 30 years, arranging their affairs and protecting their families to ensure that as much as possible is passed on to your loved ones.

We review the Prepaid Funeral Plans market so that you don’t have to and we can then give you sound advice on choosing  the right plan for your unique circumstances.  There is no charge, no obligation.  

We also prepare your Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney documents so that you can have the complete later life package.

Below is a brief description of the services we offer

Funeral Plans

For many making arrangements for when they pass away isn’t something that is usually at the top of their list of things to do. The cost of the funeral is increasing all the time and many people are worried that they wont leave enough money behind to cover the cost of their funeral. Family members are then left to cover the costs personally which can be a struggle. 

 

Wills

We deal with all aspects of Wills and are able to provide an efficient and cost effective service. To die Intestate (without having made a will) can create untold problems for those left behind. Did you know that 1 in 4 Wills that are written are never found? Without a Will, the State decides who gets your money and property and your spouse will not necessarily inherit everything. An unmarried partner may receive nothing from your estate.

 

Trusts

For your absolute peace of mind all legal documentation is drafted by qualified solicitors and returned to you in the shortest possible time. It is our belief that having one of our Family Trusts and associated documents drafted will provide you with the peace of mind that comes only with the knowledge that you have tied up all the loose ends and protected your assets properly, for the benefit of the next generation.

Power of Attorney

If you’re in good health and of sound mind, it’s hard to imagine a time in your life when you will no longer be able to manage your own affairs. But at some point in the future, illness, disability or mental impairment may stop you from handling even a bank account.
If you lose your mental capacity and haven’t arranged for anyone to act for you, your assets will in effect be frozen (and this includes joint held bank accounts).

Storage

If you have made a will or have title deeds, especially unregistered title deeds, it is important that they are stored securely. If title deeds are lost accidentally you may have difficulty proving where the boundaries lie and what your rights are in relation to the property. If your will cannot be found after your death the law will presume that you have destroyed the will because you wished to revoke it.

Probate

The granting of probate is the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under a will. A probate court decides the legal validity of a testator’s (deceased person’s) will and grants its approval, also known as granting probate, to the executor.
