Through the process of estate management, our experts can help give you and your family peace of mind – secure in the knowledge that your wishes have been heard, and a plan is in place to manage your estate upon your death.

The drafting of a will is certainly an important part of the estate planning process – helping you to clarify what you would like to happen to your assets and finances after you pass away, including the appointment of a guardian to care for any minor children.

However, it is also important to consider preparing a lifetime document, known as a Lasting Power of Attorney, to nominate a trusted person to make financial and healthcare decisions on your behalf in the event that you are unable to manage your affairs for yourself. You may also wish to give someone the ability to make a decision about life-prolonging treatment via an Advanced Directive.

Our team can also advise you on the merits of joint property ownership and prepare Declarations of Trust to record agreements between owners relating to the division of the sale proceeds (if unequal) and the payment of loans and mortgage repayments.

We understand it can be difficult to make such plans, but our experts will help you through this process every step of the way. We also know through first-hand experience, the security and support it can bring you and your loved ones when difficult and emotional times come.
