As local Somerset solicitors, we can offer a face to face meeting at your convenience either at our office in Taunton (which is easily accessible and has plenty of parking) or, if needed, in the comfort of your own home.
We offer the following services:
Wills and Tax Planning - No one likes to think about death, but we do owe it to our loved ones to ensure that when the inevitable happens our estate is in order and they will be properly provided for. By making a Will (or updating an existing Will) you can make financial provision for the people and causes you care about. Vulnerable beneficiaries can also be protected from care home fees and more importantly the impact of Inheritance Tax can often be reduced.
Administration of Estates - For those left behind, having to administer someone’s estate can make a difficult time even worse, especially if there are complexities and tax problems to deal with. We provide a sympathetic and caring service that takes all the stress and worry away from you. We can obtain the Grant of Probate, sort out the tax affairs, settle the liabilities and distribute the assets. Inheritance tax advice can be given and by varying the Will thousands of pounds can often be saved. As an established South West law firm our experience in dealing with farms and businesses means we can work alongside our colleagues in the agricultural and commercial departments to give the very best service.
Charities and Trusts – We can assist with the creation, management and administration of trusts. We can also advise on the very specialised field of establishing and administrating a charity.
Care of the Elderly and Court of Protection:- We have experience in all aspects of dealing with the Court of Protection and preparing Lasting Powers of Attorney. We pride ourselves that with our caring approach and specialist knowledge we provide peace of mind for our clients.
