Royston solicitors, The Walkers Partnership in Fish Hill is headed up by senior Partner, Terry Donnellan who is a member of Solicitors for the Elderly. The firm has practiced in Royston for over 50 years and now only focuses only on Conveyancing, Wills, Powers of Attorney and Probate.
Wills is an area of law where it is essential to have expert advice. DIY Wills are widely available but like other forms of DIY although it is possible to save money if all goes wrong there can be much expense and unhappiness. Specialist advice is also important particularly with increased numbers of people requiring residential care and also evolving Inheritance Tax (IHT) regimes.
Care home funding and IHT is a growing problem for millions of people, however, with estate planning, such as that offered by The Walkers Partnership a carefully drawn Will can minimise potential liability.
In addition to the need to make a Will, it is important to consider preparing a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). This is a legal document which allows you to choose a trusted person or persons, known as an Attorney(s) to act on your behalf in relation to your Property and Financial affairs and also your Health and Welfare in the event that you are no longer able to act yourself.
The firm regularly offers free legal advice sessions to discuss matters such as those above. The Walkers Partnership also offers a free Will service for those aged 55 or over in partnership with Cancer Research UK*.
*Free Will scheme is subject to a £50 plus vat administration fee.
