How We Work Arrow

When you’re planning your financial future you need personal advice and legal expertise in this very specific area of the law. That’s where we come in.

We’re here to help you manage your trusts and estates in the most tax efficient way. We’ll also provide support in the difficult time following the death of a loved one when you need to deal with financial affairs, property and administration.

We can help with all areas of trusts and estates including:

Trusts are a useful way to preserve wealth in cases where the intended beneficiary might be incapable of holding money or property themselves, or where an outright gift is not appropriate. Our experienced solicitors provide personalised legal advice and inheritance tax planning for all types of trusts, including:

  • Discretionary trusts
  • Life interest trusts
  • Trusts for vulnerable people
  • Personal injury trusts
  • Advice for Trustees

The complexity of The Trustee Act leaves many Trustees concerned about their duties and obligations under the law.

We can help guide and advise you what you can and cannot do as a Trustee, including the duties and responsibilities that come with the management, administration and taxation of Trusts.

Probate and administration of estates

Dealing with the death of a family member is probably one of the most distressing events any of us will encounter in life. Sorting out a person’s financial affairs and property is complex, especially where they have not left a Will (called ‘intestacy’).

During this challenging time, we can help by offering practical legal advice and friendly support.

Our experienced and compassionate team of Probate solicitors can guide the entire Probate process, including:

  • Registration of the death
  • Funeral arrangements
  • Obtaining Probate
  • Settling debts
  • Administration of the estate
  • Advice and guidance for Executors

Care fees planning

The prospect of facing long-term care is worrying for many people and their families.

At Boyce Hatton we can offer experienced legal advice to ensure you receive the care you need, whilst preserving an estate for inheritance.

We take a long-term, jargon-free approach to estate planning and care fees funding. We’ll clearly explain the financial and legal possibilities for your unique situation and help you structure your estate for the future, including:

  • Estate planning and structuring
  • Care fees funding options
  • Lifetime mortgages and equity release
  • Pension and investment alternatives
