Our Legacy Planning Services
No one likes to think about ill health, mental incapacity or even death. But the fact is that they can strike at any time causing devastation. Not only to our own lives, but also those of our loved ones. Blow Abbott Legal offers affordable and efficient legal services that focus on the key legal decisions that affect your life. Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Probate, and Inheritance Tax planning.
It may seem unusual for an accountancy firm to have a legal department. However, we find that there are great benefits of having access to experts in both the accountancy, financial services and legal fields. We strongly believe that we benefit from being able to see the whole picture across areas, such as tax.
Inheritance Tax means your loved ones may face paying 40% to HMRC on the value of what you have left them. Not only can we handle any Inheritance Tax liability as part of the probate process, we can also advise on ways of planning to reduce liability before the tax becomes an issue in later life, or after death.
Meet our Legal Adviser
We have an accredited Legal Adviser, Sophie Vines, who is a member of the Institute of Professional Will-writers and works alongside a team of Barristers and Solicitors to provide professional advice and quality document drafting.
Sophie has BA Honours degree and is also a qualified associate of the Institute of Professional Will writers.
We believe that we give our clients the best of both worlds. With access to the legal services of a team of top-flight barristers and solicitors, but with the approachable and personal service Sophie can deliver. It also allows our costs to remain extremely affordable.
Other legal services
Although we focus on the main areas of Wills, Trusts, Probate, Estate Administration, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Care Home Fee Planning, we have access to any legal services our clients may require. We work closely with over 50 Barristers and Solicitors both locally and nationally.
If you have a query regarding a specific area of law then please contact Sophie. She will advise you appropriately, referring the query on to one of our specialist team if necessary.
Initial free legacy review
For new clients we offer a free initial 30 minute consultation with Sophie. Where we can discuss your legal requirements and answer any questions you may have.
For more information call 01472 694 569 or contact us today.
Everyone over the age of 18 should have a Will. If you have children under 18, this becomes even more important as it is only through a Will that you can decide who would look after them should the worst happen.
Wills don’t need to be complex and are often much easier to set up than people may think.
Following the death of a loved one, dealing with the practicalities can often be time consuming and emotionally draining. At a time when you and your family are grieving and need support with what the next steps should be. Our probate experts work with family members and/or executors to ensure the estate is wound up efficiently and thoroughly, but with sensitivity.
Blow Abbott have been completing my personal tax return for a number of years. More recently I have also used them to set up my limited company and their legal services for probate. They’re second to none with a truly personal service.
