Speak to Lodge Brothers about their fixed fee Probate service

A great deal of anxiety and emotional distress can be alleviated when we take responsibility of preparing for the end of life. Leaving family or friends with this enormous responsibility, due to a lack of planning or inability to choose, may mean that someone else gets to choose for you. Taking on this responsibility for yourself, and not ignoring this (admittedly) large task, leaves your family and loved ones better off both financially and emotionally at the end of the day.

Parents can lead by example and show their children the value of being sufficiently preparing for when the time comes. Speaking about your wishes with your family will also help them by knowing what to expect when the times comes that you can no longer speak for yourself. Engaging with a Probate Guildford attorney means having someone who is able to assist you with the appropriate legal documentation, which will literally speak for you when you are unable to.

When it comes to choosing a Probate Ashford attorney, it is beneficial to find someone who is both empathetic and mindful, as well as being someone who is able understand and navigate the complex legal world. Lodge Brother’s Probate Feltham attorneys believe that the most proactive way of creating a voice for yourself is by preparing your Will in which you can clearly explain how your estate, your belongings and possessions, will be dealt with. Probate Woking attorneys understand that taxes and other costs will have an impact on the outcome of the final value of your estate and will advise you professionally and provide you with peace of mind.

Even though you may be someone who understands the importance of preparing a will, when faced with the task itself, it is not uncommon for a person to feel over-whelmed. Reaching out for assistance by engaging with a Probate attorney and charging that person with the task of assisting you with your Will means you have someone who neutral and knowledgeable to walk beside you and answer any questions that arise. Doing so also ensures that you do not become defeated by the task at hand by placing it on hold “for tomorrow. A Probate Sunbury attorney will also be able to advise you if your life situation changes and you wish to make amendments to your documentation.

In some cases, a person may seek the assistance of a Probate Shepperton attorney to help initiate a living Will, which is an advanced directive for your family to refer to, should you become ill so suddenly that you are unable to advise them yourself. A living will is also of great value, for example, where an illness like dementia leaves doubt in the minds of others, that your wishes are in fact actually what you desire. Your living will spare your loved ones untold anguish, preventing them from the responsibility of what might be perceived as their decision to end your life. Lodge Brothers Probate Walton attorney’s may be given power of attorney leaving you with the peace of mind that someone will be accountable for your affairs once you can no longer be.

WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING AN UP TO DATE WILL?

Only 30% of people in this country have made a Will. This is because we do not like thinking about death and we are unaware of the importance of having a professionally drafted Will. Once a person overcomes their fears and makes a Will they find that it is a positive step that gives them great peace of mind. They are reassured that their affairs are in order.

If you die without a Will you die “intestate” meaning the intestacy laws set out which of your family members inherit and the amount. Your spouse will not necessarily inherit all of your estate and if you are unmarried your Partner will not inherit anything.

A legally valid Will, carefully prepared by a qualified expert Solicitor, will ensure that:

you provide for your loved ones in the way you wish;

you choose the Executors who will administer your estate;

you choose the Guardians for your minor children; and

you can take steps to reduce the Inheritance Tax payable.

You can also choose to appoint Lodge Brothers Legal Services as the Executors of your Will. We will ensure that your estate is dealt with promptly and efficiently so that your loved ones do not have the responsibility but do receive their inheritance as quickly as possible.

Fixed fee for a single Will starting from £325 +VAT (£390 inc. VAT).

Fixed fee for mirror Wills starting from £500 +VAT (£600 inc. VAT).

All our fees are fixed and agreed in advance.

Our professional services offer peace of mind to you and your family.
