Our legal services are particularly relevant to the elderly and we deal with a number of client matters including nursing home fees, tax planning, lasting powers of attorney and much more.
We’re proud to say that three of our solicitors, Sharon Richardson, Belinda Poulter and Bethany Foster are all members of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE). This means our lawyers specialise in legal services for older people and their carers.
In addition to SFE, Sharon and Belinda are members of Dying Matters; an online resource giving advice and support to people by raising awareness of dying, death and bereavement.
Our Wills and Probate team have years’ of experience in handling even the most complex probate cases. Perhaps you simply need to write a Will; we can ensure this is professionally and legally written. In cases where an individual is deceased and has left no Will, our Probate solicitors in York, Malton, Selby and Pickering can discuss Probate plans in a sensitive and understanding way.
When an individual is no longer able to make fundamental decisions about their own care, a Lasting Power of Attorney allows someone else to make the key decisions that can affect that person’s well-being in the future. We can guide you through the process and advise you on the best actions to take.
When an individual requires long-term care from a specialist centre, such as a nursing home, we are here to offer advice to both individuals and their families. We can also advise on the funding process to help ease the strain of having to pay for expensive care homes.
There are a variety of reasons why someone may wish to transfer their home from their name in to that of someone else. The implications of doing this need to be fully understood by all involved.
Did you know that the first £325,000 of someone’s estate is not taxed? We regularly offer advice on inheritance tax and meet with our clients to discuss their estate and how they can ensure as much of their estate as possible is left to the individuals they desire.
