Wills, Probates & Estates Stonehouse

For most people, the thought of dying and what that means for those who are left behind is something we try to avoid thinking about. However, this approach can lead to even more heartbreak for the family.

Over half of the adult population in the UK do not have a valid Will in place. This means that their loved ones will be required to spend time and money, they may not have immediate access to, on managing your affairs after you have passed away.

Some people assume that everything they own will simply transfer to their beneficiaries when they die; that is unfortunately, not the reality.

What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.

Why it is Important to Make a Will

You need to make a Will whether or not you consider your assets to be of any value.

Redkite Solicitors dedicated Stonehouse team are on hand to deliver specialist advice on Wills and Probate, tax planning and Trusts and Lasting Powers of Attorney, giving you the reassurance you need. With measures in place, you can take solace in the fact that your final wishes will be executed as you want them to be.

A will makes it much simpler for your loved ones to manage everything when you pass – without a Will the process can cost a lot of money, take more time and ultimately be more stressful. Additionally, drafting a Will is particularly significant if you have children or other family members who rely on you financially, or if you want to leave something to individuals outside your immediate family.

Powers of Attorney

At Redkite Solicitors Stonehouse, our dedicated team believes in forward-thinking. We assist clients in safeguarding their assets and preserve their welfare in the face of old age, degenerative diseases, unexpected illness and loss of mental capacity.

Powers of Attorney are also regularly established for people who are going to be out of the country for long periods, or those serving in the armed forces.

Deputyship

We provide a comprehensive service, both pre and post court order and one of our Stonehouse team can even act as a Deputy, if required. We have extensive knowledge from dealing with deputyship matters and, when managing accounts for clients in which we act as Deputy, we are thoroughly meticulous; maintaining their best interests at all times.

Our skilled team puts great value in supporting our clients through one of life’s most difficult times. With a team of devoted deputyship solicitors, you can rest assured the financial interests and general well-being of your loved ones will be protected, no matter what.
