At McCluskey Browne we can offer legal advice, support and practical assistance on a range of services including:
• Power of Attorney
Planning for the future
Our solicitors can assist you in planning for the future. Whether you need the peace of mind of knowing your family will be provided for after your death under the terms of your Will, you require tax planning advice to reduce the possible tax burden in the event of your death, or would like advice on Trusts (for example in relation to children or vulnerable adults), then we can help.
Although it is not a pleasant situation to plan for, it is important to consider what would happen in the event of you becoming incapable of making important decisions. As the life expectancy of the population has increased so has the incidence of mental incapacity and physical infirmity. Appointing someone now to be your attorney under a Power of Attorney in relation to your property and financial affairs or personal welfare issues, can ensure that it will be dealt with by people you trust.
Helping you to help others
Perhaps you need support in dealing with the property and financial affairs or personal welfare of someone who is now incapable of making decisions for themselves. If that person has not previously granted a Power of Attorney then a Guardianship order will have to be sought from the sheriff court. Whatever your own personal circumstances, our solicitors will provide you with advice you can rely on.
If you have been left to deal with the estate of someone who has passed away because you are the Executor appointed in the Will, or a close family member has died without making a Will, we can provide you with advice and support.
