Hugh James provide a range of support which includes ensuring your wishes are known, sorting out a loved one's estate when they die and making sure your finances are looked after if you can't manage them.
Protect your wishes by making a Will
If you’re over 18, a Will is your way of letting everyone know what should happen to your money, property and possessions after you die (together they’re called your ‘estate’). Without a Will, the law decides what happens to your estate and there’s no guarantee it will be a simple process.
Thankfully making a Will with Hugh James can be simple, and it may not be as expensive as you think.
- Affordable – from just £140 for a single Will.
- Straightforward – with help every step of the way.
- Secure – plus free storage for your Will.
- Quick and easy to sort – over the phone or by post.
Probate and estate administration
Probate is a legal term that’s often used when talking about applying for the right to deal with a deceased person’s affairs (called ‘administering the estate’).
Lasting Power of Attorney
A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document that enables an individual to appoint someone (the ‘attorney/s’) to make decisions and sign documents on their behalf. This can include things like opening or closing bank accounts, selling property and dealing with household bills.
Hugh James can help you with all aspects of Will writing, estate administration and Lasting Power of Attorney services, making these as straightforward as possible.
