Here at Kyles we can advise on wills and lasting powers of attorney. We offer set and more tailored packages, depending on what you require.

Wills

No-one wants to think about bad things happening to them, but what if they do? Do you know how you want your affairs to be settled? Do the people you love know what you want? It is easy to assume that if the worst happens that your nearest and dearest know what you would have put in a will. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case and the law doesn’t always allow for what you’d think. As a result, settling your affairs could be far more complicated for those left behind than you envisaged. At best there could be a lot of uncertainty for those closest to you. At worst there could be a legal battle in the courts.

Where there’s a will there’s a way to provide for your loved ones. We offer simple wills and more complex ones. By making an appointment at either our Middlesbrough or North Shields office you can find out more and have a relaxed chat with our specialist advisor, Hayleigh Barry.

Lasting Power of Attorney

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a way of giving someone you trust the legal authority to make decisions on your behalf if you lack mental capacity at some time in the future or no longer wish to make decisions for yourself. This can be very important if you, for example, suffer from a long illness or are diagnosed with a form of dementia. It’s good to know in this situation you can have someone you can trust taking care of your affairs. In addition, it’s good for that person to know your wishes are written down and clear. It’s easy to think someone would be able to guess what you’d want, but better for both of you to know.

Lasting Powers of Attorney, like wills, can range from simple to more complex. It pays to have someone with experience of this area talking you through and helping you to decide what is best for you in your particular situation. You need to feel comfortable in what you decide and our team at Kyles is friendly and well-informed.

If you require any further information contact Hayleigh at either our North Shields or Middlesbrough office for an initial chat.
