Wills & probate

Dealing with an estate can be very complicated, whether it is your own or that of someone who has passed away. There are lots of decisions to make and legal processes to complete, so specialist legal advice can be highly valuable.

Our Wills and Probate solicitors in Chichester can help plan for the future of your estate as well as guiding you through administering the estate of someone who has died.

Wills

Making an effective Will is an absolute necessity if you want your estate to be passed on to the loved ones of your choosing, and for your wishes to be followed when you pass away.

Our Wills solicitors in Chichester can work alongside you to draft a Will that takes your entire estate into account, amend an existing Will and advise you on other related matters, such as minimising Inheritance Tax.

Probate & estate administration

When someone passes away, their loved ones will usually be tasked with administering their estate. Without the right advice and guidance from expert estate administration and probate solicitors, this can prove to be a complicated process.

Whether you are an Executor of an estate or the next of kin, our probate lawyers in Chichester can provide practical guidance that allows you to effectively deal with someone else's estate.

Trusts

A trust can be used to protect assets from Inheritance Tax. It can also be used to provide for a loved one long-term e.g. children or dependant adults. There are many types of trusts to choose from and it is vital to have the right support at all stages.

Our Chichester trust lawyers can help you pick the right sort of trust for your requirements and get it set up. We can also provide ongoing support for trustees and trust beneficiaries.

Inheritance Tax planning

Making good use of nil-rate bands and tax-efficient vehicles such as trusts can mean your beneficiaries receive much more of your estate in the future. The right advice can help you ensure your estate is as tax-efficient as possible, maximising its value.

Our Inheritance Tax planning solicitors in Chichester can provide tailored advice on the various options you can use to minimise your estate’s Inheritance Tax burden.

Powers of Attorney

Should you ever lose the capacity to make important decisions for yourself, a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) will allow you to appoint attorneys to take on those responsibilities on your behalf.

Our Powers of Attorney solicitors in Chichester can help you to appoint one of your loved ones as an Attorney in relation to your Property & Affairs, Personal Welfare, or both.

Court of Protection

If a loved one has lost the capacity to make decisions about their finances, property, health and/or welfare, this can be very challenging. Unless they have an appropriate Power of Attorney in place, you will normally need to apply to the Court of Protection to be able to make decisions on their behalf.

Our Court of Protection solicitors in Chichester can assist with applying to become a Court of Protection deputy, one-off applications to the Court (e.g. to sell property) and ongoing advice to deputies. Our team are also experts in resolving Court of Protection disputes.

Services for business
