Powers of Attorney
It can often be prudent to appoint someone as your attorney, giving them authority to administer your personal and financial affairs in the event that you become unable of managing them yourself. With more than one type of power of attorney selecting the right one for you can be difficult. Seldons can advise and guide you through this important process and the type of power of attorney that best suits your needs.
With many people now living into advanced old age, many financial, family and estate planning issues are more significant than ever. Seldons can help you achieve what you want on your own and your family's behalf including wills, powers of attorney and protecting assets in a tax efficient way.
In the absence of an effective enduring or lasting power of attorney the Court of Protection makes decisions and appoints deputies to act on behalf of people who are unable to make decisions about their personal health, finance or welfare. Seldons can advise when this is necessary and guide clients smoothly through the complex process of applying to the Court and dealing with medical reports.
Trusts can achieve a variety of estate planning and asset protecting objectives. Seldons can help you choose and set up the appropriate trust to deliver the maximum benefits to you and your family.
When a close family member has died we understand that this can be an emotional and difficult time. There are many legal steps that need to be taken and we can help with practical advice on what needs to be done. Seldons have long experience of administering estates, collecting assets, paying debts, settling inheritance tax, and much more. Our service is individually tailored to meet individual needs allowing you to deal with what you feel comfortable in taking on, without the pressure of being left to manage the more complex issues on your own.
