Wills, Power of Attorney & Executries
Our Wills, Power of Attorney and Executries lawyers and solicitors are able to offer clients detailed legal advice and practical help. Our lawyers are able to guide our clients through what can be very sensitive issues with minimal fuss. Feel free to get in touch with our solicitors at our offices in either Airdrie or Motherwell for additional information.
Preparing a will is something that we would recommend to everyone irrespective of your financial position or personal circumstances. A will is the only way of ensuring that your estate is distributed in the way you want after your death and it also makes the procedure for dealing with your estate much easier, quicker and cheaper. We will ensure a fully qualified lawyer and solicitor will obtain your first instructions relating to your will and that lawyer will guide you through the process until your will is completed.
We are able to offer a professional, sympathetic Will drafting service to our clients. Our lawyers can offer practical advice as to how to prepare a will which best provides for your wishes. We have offices in Airdrie and Motherwell which make us conveniently placed to serve clients throughout Lanarkshire and beyond including Motherwell, Airdrie, Coatbridge, Bellshill, Wishaw, New Stevenston, Carfin, Holytown and Hamilton. We can also arrange home visits in some cases.
Our lawyers will also be able to update or change an existing will even if you did not instruct us to prepare your original will. Contact us at our Airdrie or Motherwell offices and one of our lawyers will be able to provide you with further information.
When dealing with executries we are able to offer a similarly professional service. We are able to offer step by step help to minimise the stress to you at what can be a very difficult time. We can deal with all the formalities required from collecting details of all the assets through to distributing the estate.
Power of Attorney
We are able to assist you in preparing a power of attorney. A power of attorney is a document where a person who has legal capacity can nominate someone they trust to act on their behalf should the need arise. This can take effect either immediately or only if you become medically unable to make decisions for yourself. It can apply to financial issues or issues to do with your welfare. A power of attorney can be tailored to suit your own requirements. Once your power of attorney has been completed we will provide you with the registered power of attorney along with a copy certified by a notary public. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss what is involved in greater detail. We can also advise you regarding the costs involved in having a power of attorney prepared and registered.
