Wills, Probate and Elderly Care

We understand that it can be stressful to even attempt to begin working on a Will or planning for your own future care or helping a close relative plan for their care.  Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney have strict rules to comply with and there are many laws affecting the inheritance of wealth and the administration of estates. If you do not make a Will at all, your estate will be inherited according to the arbitrary inheritance rules set by the Government and in default of a qualifying beneficiary it goes to the estates of Prince Charles.
