Wills, Probate & Trusts

Wills, Probate & Trusts

The death of a family member is one of the most traumatic events we will ever have to cope with, and we understand how important it is for clients to feel confident that they will receive prompt, sympathetic and professional advice at this time. We can deal with applying for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration to enable you to wind up an estate following bereavement, and we will be able to guide you through the requirements of Inheritance Tax.

We recommend that all our clients make a Will, to ensure that they can leave their property and possessions in accordance with their wishes, rather than as determined by the government, and to minimise wherever possible, their potential liability for Inheritance Tax. We can advise on the appointment of Guardians and Trusts for your children in the event that death occurs before they
become adults.

With a growing elderly population, many people are concerned about the effects of conditions which may cause loss of capacity, such as Alzheimer’s, dementia and strokes will have on their future, and what might happen when they are unable to make decisions for themselves.

One of the most effective solutions is to set up a Lasting Power of Attorney, which empowers you to have a say in issues that might affect your life, even when you don’t have the capacity to do so. We can advise and assist in the drawing up of the Power of Attorney.

We can offer safe and secure storage for your Wills and Deeds free of charge.

Philip Armstrong heads the Department and is based at the Bawtry Office where he is assisted by Josh Hawkes. Matthew Sharpe, Stephen Dunn, Stephen Carey and Gareth Day are based at Retford and Charles Daysh is based at Ollerton.
