Wills and Probate
A properly drafted Will enables you to say exactly how your property, possessions and savings are to be shared out after your death, and who should handle those affairs. In the absence of such a Will, the Government will make those decisions!
You can also say who will look after your children as guardian, and who should look after any money that you put in Trust for young or disabled beneficiaries. A significant benefit of having an expert solicitor from Bird & Lovibond to help with a Will is that tax-saving measures can be incorporated with the potential to save tens of thousands of pounds on inheritance tax (sometimes called death duties).
At Bird & Lovibond we can also advise on setting up a Power of Attorney for an elderly or disabled relative so that their future healthcare and financial needs can be managed by a trusted family member, friend or professional adviser. Our experienced solicitors can also help to remove the burden of applying for Probate and the distribution of the deceased’s estate. We aim to make every procedure as simple and straightforward as possible and will be happy to meet you to discuss your requirements.
So, whether your need is to write a Will, set up a Trust, minimise Inheritance Tax, take out a Power of Attorney, or have someone deal with a Probate issue please contact your local Bird & Lovibond office in Middlesex at Uxbridge, Greenford, or Ruislip.
