SUPPORTING YOU WITH

Powers of Attorney

No one knows what the future will hold, and if you end up in a situation of being unable to make your own decisions, a Lasting Power of Attorney can safeguard your future and that of your business. 


We apply a fixed fee for the preparation and registration of LPAs so that there are no hidden charges.

ADVICE ON

Previous LPA's

If you completed a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in the period between 1st April 2013 and 31st March 2017 then you may be due a refund. 


The Ministry of Justice have decided that during this period the Office of the Public Guardian overpriced their registration fee. As a result, if you had an LPA registered during this period and paid a fee for doing so you should be able to claim a refund.

EXPERTS IN

Court of Protection

If a person has not made a Lasting Power of Attorney and is unable to manage their affairs, friend or family member will need to apply to the Court of Protection to have the legal authority to manage their affairs.


We have an expert team with experience in this field who understand all about capacity issues and how they can affect you and your family.

ESTATE ADMINISTRATION

& Probate

When someone close to you dies, there is often a lot to do, at what can be an emotionally draining time. One task that needs to be considered at an early stage is the sorting out of the deceased person’s financial affairs.


At Bright Solicitors we can assist you with every aspect of the administration of an estate. We would encourage you to give us a ring at an early stage, to discuss what needs to be done. If it transpires that you do not need a solicitor to be involved, then we will tell you that and send you on your way, with some helpful guidance.

CREATION & ADMINISTRATION OF

Trusts

During your lifetime, you will want to retain the greatest amount of control over your estate. You will also wish to ensure that your estate is preserved for the next generation when you die and in order to do this you may wish to think about creating a Trust. The tax considerations of setting up a trust can be significant and it is important to seek professional advice.
