Keeping Control and Piece of Mind
are priceless commodities


STAY IN CONTROL OF THINGS

ITS
YOUR HOME ITS YOUR MONEY ITS YOUR LIFE


How can you stay in control in a world of ever increasing bureaucracy
and more intrusive rules and regulations:

LIFE TIME CONTROL - LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY

PREVIOUSLY:
You and your family and / or friends could decide on major issues in your life -
where you want to live
how your finances should be dealt with
what medical treatment you want etc

The "STATE" would only step in and act as a safety net where this was not possible.

NOW:
Unless you have made your wishes known by putting in place both
HEALTH AND WELFARE LASTING POWER OF ATTORNEY and PROPERTY AND AFFAIRS LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY

The "STATE" can in certain circumstances now step in against the wishes of yourself and your family and appoint a
DEPUTY who will have legal control of all the above matters - irrespective of your wishes or those of your family.

POST LIFE CONTROL - WILLS


EITHER
review your current Will to ensure it still reflects your wishes or make a Will to ensure those you love and are now an important part of your life, charities you support etc benefit from your estate after you have passed on.

If you do not leave a Will (this is known as dying INTESTATE) the people you wish to benefit may not receive anything. The law will dictate a strict order of close family members who will inherit your estate.

Friends, charities etc
never inherit under an intestacy.

If there are no family members within the strict order set by the law YOUR ESTATE WILL PASS TO THE GOVERNMENT.

PEACE OF MIND


Sometimes it can be very reassuring to have assistance with:

Reviewing important legal documents you have
for example title deeds to your home


Answering any queries you have relating to legal, financial, housing or any other issues important to you
Sorting out paperwork - relating to bank statements, insurance policies etc
Dealing with official organisations on your behalf
Arranging medical or other appointments
Practical arrangements regarding your home
Practical arrangements regarding pets

in fact any other legal, financial or practical matters that are a concern or need addressing for you or even the re-assurance to know that your paperwork is up to date.


Nicholsons Solicitors have been in practice for over 19 years and in that time have built close relationships with our Clients. We now wish to expand that relationship with both existing and new Clients to offer an entirely bespoke service tailored to the individual needs of each Client.


We offer an initial free interview - either at our office or in your own home or in a care home entirely to suit you - to all prospective Clients and we are also more than happy to speak to family members strictly at your direction to ascertain how we may be able to help you. Each matter is entirely individual and only by liasing with our Clients, or those authorised on their behalf, can we fully appraise the position and decide how we can tailor our service to help you.


If in doubt - ask ! Nothing is too small or too simple if it helps regain peace of mind for you.


As a professional firm of Solicitors you will have the peace of mind that our work is supported by professional indemnity insurance which covers not only the work we undertake for you but also any funds, disbursements etc that we hold on your behalf. This is not always the case with Will writing firms and firms advertising work in the areas of Lasting Powers of Attorney etc.


Call us for a no obligation discussion.
