A carefully drafted Will provides you with the reassurance that after your death, problems will be minimised and your wishes will be carried out. At Bernard Chill & Axtell Solicitors, we provide a cost-effective and personalised Wills and Probate service. We also advise on the implications of Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs).
Partner Paul Harvey has been working as a Wills solicitor in Southampton for 30 years and your affairs will be handled by him or another suitably qualified and experienced professional. We are a traditional firm and believe we are at our most effective when we understand fully the needs of our clients.
We make a point of meeting you face to face so questions can be asked in a relaxed environment and we can fully understand how you want to dispose of your assets. At the same time, we use the latest software and technology to ensure a speedy, consistent and streamlined service.
Dealing with the death of a loved one is hard enough without having to worry about the bureaucracy associated with obtaining probate. We provide a range of services to help families gather in assets and deal with the administration of the estate.
Wills can be challenged on the grounds of duress, undue influence and lack of capacity. In addition, a claim for provision from the estate can be made by dependents of the deceased. We can advise you of the strength of any claim or, if you are responsible for the administration of an estate that is subject to a challenge, we can provide advice on how to defend against the claim.
Lasting Powers Of Attorney In Eastleigh
Through an LPA, you can make provision to choose someone to manage your finances and property and to make health and welfare decisions for you should you become incapable. These documents have widespread implications for you once they have been finalised and at Bernard Chill & Axtell Solicitors, we ensure that you are fully informed of their significance.
