WILLS, PROBATE & LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY
WILLS
Making a will can be a daunting prospect. At Symons, Gay & Leland our will writing department will ensure that the process is easy and straightforward.

Symons, Gay & Leland’s Solicitors will advise you on the best way to ensure that your wishes are carried out and your Executors will know what you want them to do.

We will also advise you on inheritance tax and potential pitfalls.

It is particularly important ot make a will if you are not married or in a registered civil partnership, this is because the law does not automatically recognise cohabitants as having the same rights as husbands, wives and civil partners.

Drafting a will ensures that you have a legally binding document which clearly defines who is to benefit from your property and possessions after your death.

We appreciate that not everyone can attend the office, should you wish someone to attend you at your home, hospital or nursing  please contact the office and appointment will be made at a time suitable for you.

For further information please contact
Jacqueline Stringer or Nathan Clarke.
LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY
From 1st October 2007, Enduring Powers of Attorney have been replaced by Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Lasting Powers come in two forms – Property and Financial Affairs Powers and Welfare Powers

Neither of the powers will be effective until they have been registered at the Public Guardianship office – but you don’t have to register a Power immediately if you don’t want to. If it isn’t registered then your Attorney can not use the Power.

Registration at the Court does not mean that some one lacks the capacity to act for themselves

If you want a power of attorney immediately that doesn’t mean you have to make a lasting power. You could make an ordinary power of attorney, but the ordinary power will not be effective if you lose capacity.

PROBATE
When a person dies it is an extremely distressing time and the subsequent responsibility of dealing with the administration of the estate can be very difficult.

Symons, Gay & Leland have specialist solicitors who can give advice and support on dealing with the estate. We will deal with your matter as stress free as possible.
