Rowcroft Make a Will Week

We will, once more, be supporting the Rowcroft Make a Will week (18 to 22 May 2015).

During Make a Will Week, we will waive our fee for Will-making, in exchange for a donation to Rowcroft.   The suggested minimum is £100 for a single Will or £150 for a pair of mirror Wills.   For more complicated Wills a fee is agreed in advance.

To take part in Make a Will Week, simply contact us to make an appointment between 18th – 22th May, mentioning ‘Rowcroft Hospice’ when you call.

Where there’s a Will, there’s a way!

‘Where there’s a Will there’s a way’ (to pass possessions or gifts to those you love).  Where there is not a Will, there’s a Chancellor of the Exchequer waiting in the wings to grab a slice of everything you have worked hard to accumulate rubbing his hands with glee. Perhaps its time to make a simple, but effective, Will, so that you decide who benefits after your death.

What if you have a Will already?   Is your Will ‘up-to-date’?  Does it do what you want it to do?  Call us now for a free Will review!

To discuss your requirements (or those of a loved one) in a straight-forward way, just speak to Kim Griffith, our Probate partner.  She can prepare a Will for you using everyday language which will ease the burden on your loved ones after you have gone and ensure you decide who benefits, rather than the Chancellor of the Exchequer!

You might be surprised how little it will cost to leave your affairs in order.   Kim can advise you about Trusts and Inheritance tax planning too.

To experience our service at first hand, new and existing clients are welcome to call in to our offices at 10 Churston Broadway, Paignton (01803 845191) where there is ample free parking, or 10A Bolton Street, Brixham (01803 854123) any week day between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm.

If ‘9 to 5’ is not convenient, our Paignton office is open until 7:00 pm on Wednesdays.  Just ‘drop-in’!  Alternatively, home visits can be arranged.

Lexcel Annual Assessment!

We have just had our fourth annual assessment for the Law Society Lexcel Accreditation. We are proud to say that we passed with flying colours and indeed exceeded the Lexcel Practice Management requirements in seven areas – an achievement in itself! Well done to all the team – we are constantly working to raise the standards, providing quality advice at competitive fees. A professional service with the personal touch!
