Wills and Probate Department

 Some of the topics dealt with by our Wills and Probate Department are, by their very nature, sometimes distressing.  Therefore, we aim to make the process as simple and stress free as possible. We take the time to listen to our clients and to fully understand their needs and the situation in which they find themselves.

Making A Will

We can guide you through the process of making a Will (including inheritance tax planning if appropriate) for a competitive fixed rate prices for single wills and wills being made by couples (whether married or unmarried). We can also offer home visits for clients who are unable to come into the office or visits to hospitals or nursing homes  in the local area should these be required.  We will be happy to supply no-obligation quotations in respect of our fees on request.

Probate And Estate Administration

Rollasons can act on your behalf in connection with the administration of the estate of the deceased person, including dealing with Bank or Building Societies, applying for the relevant Grant from the Probate Registry, dealing with payment of any outstanding bills from the estate assets, preparing the estate accounts for approval and distributing the estate in accordance with either the Will or the Intestacy Rules. We charge fees based on the amount of time spent, not on the value of the estate.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

The Mental Capacity Act (2005) protects people who may not be able to make decisions for themselves. Whether it is a Property and Financial Affairs or Health and Wellfare Rollasons can help you draft this important legal document and advise you on all the details that need to be considered.

Court Of Protection

Due to the complicated changes in legislation, the majority of people are not aware of the Court of Protection and the Appointment of a Deputy procedures. We can guide you through the application process and deal with any queries arising. We also advise people who have been appointed as a deputy with matters such as accounts, selling properties and general administration of the individual’s affairs.

We strive to improve our service to our clients and welcome your feedback at all times. If there is anything you would like to discuss please do not hesitate to contact us.
