Most people in the UK do not have an up-to-date will, but wills are an important document in ensuring everything you own, including property, money, and other possessions, is handled the way you wish upon your death. With expert advice and guidance from Kingly Solicitors the drafting of your will, and the handling of your estate upon your death, will be easy to manage and less stressful than doing it alone. We aim to always provide a high-quality and friendly legal service when dealing with wills, probate, and related areas.
PROBATE AND ESTATES
Whether you have been named as an executer in someone’s will, or somebody has died without a will, Kingly Solicitors can guide you through all the steps of administering an estate, ensuring everything is inherited as the deceased wished it to be. We can also advise you in cases where you believe a will to be unfair.
PROBATE AND WILL DISPUTES
There are certain disputes that can be made over wills, such as when somebody challenges its validity, or when there are disagreements between co-executors over how an estate is managed and divided.
Kingly Solicitors can advise executors of wills if such a challenge occurs, or provide advice to those disagreeing with the will or how an estate is being managed.
COURT OF PROTECTION DEPUTIES
If a person lacks or loses the mental capacity to handle their property, financial, or personal affairs, the Court of Protection can appoint one or more deputies to fulfil the role.
Anybody over the age of 18 can apply to become a deputy, but they must declare any past bankruptcies or criminal convictions.
LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY
Unfortunately, not everybody is able to handle their financial and property affairs if they become mentally or physically ill.
Kingly Solicitors can help you draft the Lasting Power of Attorney legal document in which you can appoint a person you trust to look after your financial affairs when you are no longer able to.
We will look after your important documents, and make them available to the person you nominated in the Lasting Power of Attorney, as and when needed.
It is worth noting that you can only make a Lasting Power of Attorney while you have the mental capacity to do so.
