Wills and Probate

At Pittalis LLP, we deal with wills and probate matters. We will endeavour to proceed with due attention, care and consideration especially following a bereavement.


Wills

At Pittalis LLP, we can advise and assist you in drawing up a valid and binding Will. No matter how straightforward or complex the assets involved, writing a Will is a sensible and essential part of good estate planning. Having a proper, legal document in place will ensure that your assets are protected and distributed in accordance with your wishes.

Our aim is to provide you with the legal expertise to prepare your Will. At Pittalis LLP we can advise you on estate planning involving assets and substantial business interests, inheritance tax, guardianship for children, and for high net worth individuals, we have close working relationships with specialist tax consultants for complex estate tax planning.


Probate

If you are an Executor of a Will, at Pittalis LLP we can advise and guide you on all matters relating to probate law to assist you in the discharge of your legal obligations for administering the deceased’s estate.

Our service includes the following areas of probate:

• determining validity of a Will and obtaining approval for Grant of Probate
• contested probate, challenging a Will
• advising on rules of intestacy if no Will exists
• obtaining Letters of Administration if no Will exists
• claims against the Estate

Lasting Powers of Attorney

At Pittalis LLP, we can advise and assist you with the creation of a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA).

A LPA is a legal document as specified by the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (England and Wales). Its purpose is to enable a person wishing to plan ahead for the future, to appoint someone they trust to make decisions on their behalf regarding property and financial affairs or health and welfare or both.

At Pittalis LLP we understand that creating a LPA is an important decision for you, and your family. Our aim is to support you through the process and ensure the legal requirements are met in making the application for an LPA and most importantly, that your instructions are properly reflected in the LPA.
