Wills, Trusts and Probate

Wills, Trusts and Probate

Regardless of the problem, the success of Carr Richards Solicitors, has been due to our policy of putting the client first. This has led to many satisfied clients recommending our Wills, Trusts and Probate Team to family and friends and giving us an outstanding reputation in the market.

If you care about what happens to your property after you die, then you need to make a will. It is very important to make a will if you are not married to your partner, as the law does not automatically recognise partners as having the same rights as husbands and wives. Making a will is simple and inexpensive and provides you with peace of mind.

We are also able to relieve you of the responsibilities of obtaining probate and winding up the financial affairs of the person who has died, thus reducing the strains and distress of being a personal representative.

We can help you prepare a Lasting Powers of Attorney, so you are able to choose who will manage your affairs if, you become incapable of doing so yourself.

We are very pleased to visit you at your home to discuss your specific requirements and let you sign the documents in the comfort of your home. A small charge is made for home visits to cover travel costs and the extra time involved.

Litigation and Disputes

Litigation and Disputes

The firm acts both for individuals and businesses in a broad range of disputes. We pride ourselves on a results-driven approach and understand that what each client wants will be different. We combine a strong technical ability with a personal and pragmatic attitude, concentrating on our client’s objectives. We are also rooted in the real world and recognise that the client wants to be told what the strength of their case is in law, what our recommendations are, and how much it will cost. We will try to resolve matters through negotiation, mediation, expert determination, arbitration and other forms of dispute resolution and see court as the last resort. We provide you with accurate, up to date advice and make sure you have realistic expectations of your case.

We appreciate that property litigation can be extremely stressful for the individual, as often it will involve disputes that go on for a long time and often with people you know, such as your neighbours. We will advise you thoroughly in relation as to how to fund any claim that you might have and if you have the benefit of existing legal expenses insurance, we will liaise with your insurers on your behalf, to ensure that you take advantage of that cover.

Often the grounds you have for bringing a claim, or defending one, will be unclear. Our Litigation and Disputes Team will be delighted to speak with you to see how we can best assist you.
