If you care about what happens to your property after you die then you should make a will. It is particularly important to make a will if you are not married to your partner because the law does not automatically recognise partners as having the same rights as husbands and wives.
Making a will is usually simple and inexpensive. It provides peace of mind and reduces the likelihood of family disputes later.
We can help you prepare a tax efficient will; and if we have already prepared a will for you, we offer a no cost review to help you identify whether any changes would be beneficial.
Being a personal representative has heavy responsibilities and can be legally difficult or personally distressing. We will relieve you of the burdens of obtaining probate and will wind up the financial affairs of the person who has died, whilst ensuring that their wishes are followed.
We can help in many other ways. For instance, we can prepare an Lasting Power of Attorney so you can choose who is to manage your affairs if you become mentally incapable of doing so yourself. Our specialist solicitors have a long record of helping elderly clients, particularly with practical problems such as the arranging and funding of residential care.
Regardless of the problem, the success of Hallett and Co in Ashford since 1830 has been due to our policy of putting the client first. This has led to many satisfied clients recommending our probate, trust and tax department to their families, friends and work colleagues, giving us one of the best reputations in the South East.
