Wills, Probate, Trusts & Lasting Powers of Attorney

Wills, Probate, Trusts & Lasting Powers of Attorney 02

After the death of a loved one, disputes are most likely to arise if there is no Will or the Will is “homemade” i.e. prepared without taking proper professional advice. For married/unmarried couples, home owners and parents, the making of a Will is very important.

Pocock’s can advise you on all aspects of Will making.

Pocock’s are also very experienced in obtaining Grants of Probate and dealing with the winding up and Administration of Estates.

Lasting Powers of Attorney are also something Pocock’s can help you with. These are effective whilst you are alive. They assist you to choose a person you trust to make decisions on your behalf concerning property, finance, health and welfare should you become mentally incapacitated and on making these, you should also ensure you have made a Will, which becomes effective after your death.
