We would urge everyone to make a will. It is not something that should be done only at the last minute or by elderly people. All age groups should consider making and planning for a will, especially couples with young children.
Writing your will is easier than you think but does require legal advice. Don’t delay, do it today! Two consultations is generally all it takes. We will email you a comprehensive information sheet at no cost to get you started.
See our Blog for an article on the benefits of having a will.
Our fees for a will start from as little as €300 plus VAT at 23%. We offer “2 for the price of 1” deals for spouse/partner wills.
Enduring Power of Attorney
An Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) is a legal document which allows you to appoint a specific individual (usually a close family member) to look after both your personal and financial affairs in the event that you lose your mental capacity in the future. It can be an extremely powerful document that significantly bypasses the hurdles and problems your family could face when trying to deal with your affairs should you become incapable. The main purpose of an enduring power of attorney is to enable somebody of your choosing to have the entitlement to manage your financial and personal affairs for you if you lose your mental capacity at some future date.
Our fee for an EPA is usually €500 plus VAT at 23% and outlays.
Probate is a legal process which allows a person to deal with a deceased person’s assets. If a member of your family has died and you are unsure what the legalities are, then we can advise on the best way to proceed. A solicitor is not always required and we will tell you this at the outset. However, if you do need legal advice or representation then we can help you, every step of the way or only where you need us. You choose.
We can prepare all of the necessary paperwork and will liaise with all financial institutions and state bodies on your behalf and will contact and keep the family and beneficiaries up to date.
We do not charge our fees for probate matters as a % of the value of the estate. We calculate the fee according to the time we spend helping you. We are also usually happy to agree a fixed fee at the start, once we know what work is involved.
