Wills, Trusts And Probate

Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do but something many never consider and even more put off. As expert Wills and probate advocates, we have been helping individuals all over the world for nearly 50 years. At Merlyn Law Firm we understand that this is often a very daunting task and aim to make the process as simple and hassle free as possible. Our friendly staff are on hand to discuss your personal circumstances and pose questions you may not have considered to ensure that your Will covers a number of eventualities.

We work hard throughout our life and a professionally drafted Will can ensure that your hard-earned assets pass as you wish when the time comes. We can also assist with probate matters and discuss estates; the loss of a loved one is always difficult, and we can help with the legal work, easing the burden of challenging paperwork and processes. We can help with as little or as much of the administration of an estate as you wish and will provide realistic estimates of our costs from the outset and believe in transparency in this regard.

Inheritance Tax And Probates

At Merlyn Law Firm, our professionals work with you to minimise the amount deducted as taxation when your inheritance is given. Our teams also provide expert advice on probates and challenging wills.

Powers Of Attorney

Powers of attorney allow someone else to manage affairs on your behalf should you become unable. Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPAs) and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) allow you to pass on the power to another person in the case of mental illness. If no power of attorney is appointed, each person must make an application to the Court of Protection if they choose to manage affairs on your behalf. Our professionals can help set up powers of attorney and make sense of Court of Protection applications.

Asset Protection Trust

If you hear about such a Trust, before you decide this is the best way to protect your assets and your children’s ‘inheritance’, make sure that you take legal advice from a solicitor.
