Wills and Probate
Our partners, Paul Aynsley & Mark Boon are experienced solicitors who will guide clients to a solution as quickly and as sensitively as possible.
They are assisted in the department by Jane Sixsmith who has a fountain of knowledge, understanding and patience for her clients.
It is never too early to make arrangements and manage your business affairs in the event of your death. Making a Will now can save further heartache for your loved ones and stop any disputes arising between them ensuring that your affairs are managed exactly how you wished.
Our Probate lawyers provide a full Wills drafting service and are able to advise you on basic tax planning matters and Inheritance Tax and the various ways in which you can hold property to maximise your tax allowances.
We also offer an estate planning service and as our Mr Boon also specialises in commercial property, he is able to ensure that any business that you own will also continue to be led by the people you have chosen.

Do not put off making a Will. It is as important for young people to make a Will as it is for older people. Do not assume that if you do not bother making a Will, your Wife or Husband will inherit everything. She or He may not and if the estate goes to other members of the family there may be Inheritance Tax to pay which could leave your spouse with financial difficulties.
There are many reasons to make or update your Will. Questions to consider:
As well as providing Will Services and preparing Lasting Powers of Attorney, we also provide specialist legal services on registering Enduring Powers of Attorney and on full applications to the Court of Protection where a person loses mental capacity but there is no Lasting Power of Attorney in place.
More and more people are now becoming proactive in terms of planning for their old age and we are happy to be part of that planning process. We work closely as a practice with the local branch of Age UK (formerly Age Concern) and we provide advice on Inheritance Tax issues, gifts of property, protecting the home and minimising residential home or nursing home fees.
