Wills, Probate, and Powers of Attorney at Wakefield Law
No one knows what the future will hold for them. There are many of us who will put off making a Will year after year. The importance of making a Will cannot be over emphasised. At the end of the day, it is your house, your savings, your nest egg, your pension and your decision as to who should inherit.
Wakefield Law offer wholly independent expert and confidential advice. By consulting and working with us, you will have the peace of mind of knowing that all of your affairs are in order, and that you will have made provision in your Will to look after those who are most dear to you.
PROBATE AND ADMINISTRATION OF ESTATES
Wakefield Law also provide a compassionate, professional and expert service in dealing with Probate and the Administration of Estates. The legal formalities of the winding-up of the Estate of a Deceased have to be dealt with, even though it is the worst possible time for the bereaved next of kin. Wakefield Law will do their very best to shoulder that burden and to make the process as stress free as possible. Wakefield Law will deal with the process of administering the Estate, establishing what assets exist, and who is entitled to what. They will then gather in the assets, settling outstanding debts, and distribute the proceeds according to the Will or, in the event of an Intestacy, in compliance with the Statutory Rules of Intestacy.
POWERS OF ATTORNEY
Wakefield Law can also assist with Powers of Attorney, to include Lasting Powers. Wakefield Law can undertake the necessary legal work to enable you to appoint someone to act on your behalf, in the event of your becoming mentally incapable, at some time in the future, of managing your own financial affairs. The Lasting Power can be drawn as widely or as narrowly as you choose. Wakefield Law will fully advise and ensure that these matters are dealt with in absolute compliance with your instructions.
