A Will sets out who is to benefit from your property and possessions (your “Estate”) after your death and can appoint guardians and trustees for any minor children.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

A power of attorney is a legal document that allows you (the ‘donor’) to appoint one or more people (known as ‘attorneys’) to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf.

Administration of Estates


We understand that dealing with the administration of an estate can be very emotional and distressing, which is why we handle the process with compassion and efficiency.

Co-ownership of property (Declarations of Trust)

A Declaration of Trust is a legally binding agreement which records the financial arrangement between owners. It can set out who put in what and who pays for things such as the mortgage, bills, home improvement and costs and how the proceeds will be divided upon sale.
