People are living longer than ever before and the need to protect accumulated wealth for your own use, or to pass on to your heirs, is vital. House price inflation has resulted in many home-owners falling into the Inheritance Tax net and with more and more people buying second homes, in the UK or abroad, there is increased need to use specialist advice to protect Estates. We can advise on the drafting and updating of Wills, Inheritance Tax planning and the use and drafting of Trusts and Lasting Powers of Attorney. We also provide elderly client services and can deal with the administration of Estates on death, including Probate.
We do not charge a percentage of the Estate (which would include the value of any house/flat) in addition to our fees like the majority of firms and only charge for work actually done when administering Estates.
When purchasing or selling a property or after divorcing where we have acted for you, David Long will discount his fees for the preparation of a Will by 40%. The same discount will also apply if we have advised and assisted you in settling a personal injury, clinical negligence or professional negligence claim.
