Wills & probate

Making decisions about the future of your estate and how your loved ones will be provided for is something many people put off. Dealing with the estate of someone who has died can be just as intimidating. In both cases, it is essential to have specialist legal support to avoid unnecessary stress and ensure you make the right choices.

We have a team of specialist Wills and Probate solicitors at our Bognor Regis office. They can assist with all aspects of your lifetime planning as well as with estate administration following a death.

Wills

A detailed Will is of paramount importance. It ensures your estate goes to those you would wish to benefit in the unfortunate event of your passing. Having a Will in place can give you peace of mind, knowing your loved ones will be cared for and covered when you are no longer here. 

Our Wills solicitors in Bognor Regis are fully qualified and at hand to offer support with your first Will or amends to your existing Will. We will ensure no issue is overlooked, providing certainty for you and your loved ones.

Probate & estate administration

Estate administration and probate refers to the process of dealing with a person’s money, property and possessions in the aftermath of their death. This task is often left to the deceased’s loved ones to carry out, yet with so many factors to think about, it can often become a rather complicated process to deal with. 

Our probate and estate administration solicitors in Bognor Regis can offer advice and practical support for Executors of an estate and the next of kin. We aim to enable a much simpler administration of the estate during what is likely to be a very difficult time. 

Trusts

Trusts can be a very effective way of protecting your assets from Inheritance Tax. They can also be used to ensure your loved ones will be provided for, no matter what the future brings. This can be especially beneficial when you have young children or vulnerable dependants.

We have strong expertise in many different types of trusts. This allows us to offer tailored advice on the best type of trust for your circumstances. Our trust lawyers in Bognor Regis can help with establishing a trust as well as providing advice for trustees and trust beneficiaries.

Inheritance Tax planning

Inheritance Tax can seriously reduce the value of your estate that passes to your next of kin when you are gone. Fortunately, there are various options that can be used to legitimately reduce the Inheritance Tax burden on your estate. This includes proper use of nil-rate bands and tax-efficient vehicles, such as trusts.

Our Inheritance Tax planning solicitors in Bognor Regis will be pleased to discuss your options with you, helping to make your estate as tax-efficient as possible.

Powers of Attorney

In the unfortunate circumstance that you were no longer able to make decisions for yourself, it is crucial to have a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in place to ensure someone you know and trust has the authority to make those decisions for you. 

Speak to our qualified Powers of Attorney solicitors at our Bognor Regis branch to discuss an LPA that covers your personal welfare, your property and your affairs. Our solicitors will walk you through the process and discuss your wants and needs before drafting the legal documentation that puts your LPA in place.

Court of Protection

When someone has lost the capacity to make decisions about their finances, property, health and wellbeing, it can present a serious problem for their loved ones. If the person did not leave a Power of Attorney, then it may be necessary for a loved one to apply to the Court of Protection to become their deputy. This will empower the loved one to make essential decisions on behalf of the person without capacity.

Our Court of Protection solicitors in Bognor Regis can assist with applications to the Court of Protection. We can also advise those acting as deputies and anyone with concerns about the conduct of a Court of Protection deputy.
