We are regularly being contacted by existing and new clients asking if we are still working and if we can still prepare Wills and Powers of Attorney for them.
Please rest assured that our solicitors specialising in Wills and Powers of Attorney are working both from the office and remotely and will arrange a meeting with you by Skype, facetime, what’s app or telephone. We will prepare your Wills and can provide a witnessing service (in compliance with the social distancing rules).
During these unprecedented times, it is important to ensure that your Wills are in place and up-to-date and to consider whether you should have powers of attorney in place so that if you are taken ill your attorney can manage your financial affairs.
At Owen White & Catlin LLP, we offer a different type of legal service:
Our commitment to providing the best possible service is recognised by clients and professional associations alike. We have a high level of client satisfaction and retention, as evidenced on our testimonials page. The Law Society has awarded us the Lexcel Quality Mark for excellence in client care and legal practice management, so you can be assured that our service meets the highest possible standards. The Law Society has also awarded us accreditation for our Conveyancing service, giving you confidence in the high quality and standards delivered by our Property Law team.
The statutory legacy amount has increased from £250,000 to £270,000, with effect from 6 February 2020. This is the fixed sum that surviving spouses and civil partners are entitled to if their partner dies without a Will (known as dying intestate) and they have children. Although the rise is a welcome development, it is important to be aware that dying without a Will, regardless of your family situation, can cause problems for your loved ones and estate at an already difficult time.Read More
