Making a Will is an essential part of life, providing your loved ones with a framework for how you would like your assets to be divided should you pass away. Unfortunately, many people often put off this task due to feeling that it is difficult and time consuming.

Thankfully, our Wills solicitors in Ashford have the expertise and experience to assist you in creating an airtight and secure Will, should you be creating a Will, amending a Will or require inheritance Tax advice beforehand.

Our probate lawyers make sure to tailor all our advice to your specific circumstances whilst supporting you at every stage.

Our solicitors can assist with a variety of Will related legal issues, including making a Will, amending an existing Will, Will disputes, Inheritance Tax legal advice, Nil Rate Band Discretionary Trusts and Life Interest Trusts in Wills.

Should you have any initial questions about any of these topics, our solicitors will be more than happy to speak with you.


Trusts are incredibly useful means of ensuring that your assets are preserved for future generations, helping you to manage your wealth for anyone that you would like to benefit down the line.

When you place your assets within a trust, they are then under the control of an individual referred to as a “trustee” who will manage the trust according to the instructions that you leave, even after you pass away.

Our Wills and Probate solicitors in Ashford understand that everyone will have varying circumstances, which is why we make sure to first look closely at your case in great detail, allowing us to personalise our legal advice for your specific situation.

Our team consists of many experts in this field of law, so you can be sure that your best interests remain completely protected.

Powers of Attorney

Powers of Attorney refers to the specific documents that allow an individual to manage your affairs after you pass or if it is decided that you do not have the capacity to make important decisions for yourself.

If you do not have a Power of Attorney in place, then it will be incredibly difficult for your chosen executor to act on your behalf, distributing the estate as you have instructed in your Will.

Our Wills and Probate solicitors and lawyers in Ashford’s services include:

  • Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA)
  • Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) Registration
  • Ordinary Powers of Attorney (OPA)
  • Powers of Attorney Disputes
  • Ending Powers of Attorney

Our team of experts have many years of assistance helping clients to put Powers of Attorney in place for future security.

Court of Protection

Should an individual be deemed as lacking the capacity to make important decisions about their own finances and welfare, the Court of Protection does its best to safeguard them.

In these situations, an application can be made to the Court of Protection to provide a Deputyship Order, which appoints a deputy who will then be in charge of managing the individual’s property and financial affairs on their behalf.

This is never an easy task, seeing a loved one lose capacity can be extremely distressing. However, our solicitors in Ashford have many years of experience in managing this process, taking the stress off your shoulders.

Our Court of Protection Service includes the following:

  • Deputyship Application for Property and Financial Affairs
  • Deputyship Application for Personal Welfare
  • Application for a Statutory Will
  • Emergency Court of Protection applications
  • Ongoing advice for Court of Protection Deputies
