Probate, Wills, Personal Tax, Finance and related matters
At Blanchards Bailey LLP we have a long history of providing advice to clients on all aspects of their financial and personal affairs. We help clients make wills and we obtain grants of probate (or in cases where there is no will, Letters of Administration) and administer estates and trusts. We advise in cases where wills are disputed and on the effects of the laws which entitle certain people to benefit from an estate even if not named in the will.
We help clients manage their finances and plan their estates having regard both to sensible and lawful tax mitigation and to avoiding as far as possible the impact of care home fees. In the face of increasingly complex financial products and the ever growing burden of financial regulation and bureaucracy we have jointly formed with a local firm of financial specialists Blanchards Bailey Financial Services Limited which offers to clients full portfolio management and balanced access to a wide range of financial services.
In a world where people are living longer and pensions becoming increasingly stretched we pay particular regard to the requirements of the elderly. We advise on powers of attorney, avoiding care home fees and the possibilities (and dangers) of releasing equity in the home.
