Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)

An LPA is an essential legal document that enables you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf if you’re unable to do so in the future. We offer expert guidance on both Property and Financial Affairs LPAs and Health and Welfare LPAs, ensuring your interests are protected no matter what the future holds.

Loan Agreements

When borrowing or lending money, especially among family and friends, a formal loan agreement is vital to clarify the terms and prevent future disputes. Our solicitors can assist in drafting clear, legally binding loan agreements that protect all parties involved.

What our clients say


Changing your name is more straightforward than you might think. For adults, it typically involves preparing and implementing a Change of Name deed, which we can often complete on the same day of your consultation. For children, consent from all individuals with parental responsibility is needed, or a court order may be required if consent cannot be obtained.

A statutory declaration is a formal statement made affirming that something is true to the best of the knowledge of the person making it, used in situations where legal certification of a statement is required without the need for an oath or affidavit. It’s commonly used in property transactions, visa applications, and other legal processes where a declaration of truth is necessary.

Yes, our solicitors can both certify documents as true copies of the original and witness signatures on documents. Certification by a solicitor is often required for legal, financial, or educational documents to be recognized officially. Witnessing a document involves verifying the identity of the signatory and their understanding and consent to the document’s terms.

Having a will ensures that your assets and possessions are distributed according to your wishes after your death, providing clarity and preventing disputes among your loved ones. Without a will, your estate will be distributed according to the rules of intestacy, which may not align with your wishes and could lead to unintended consequences for the distribution of your estate.

An LPA is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf if you’re unable to do so in the future due to illness, injury, or incapacity. It’s important because it ensures that someone you trust is making decisions that affect your property, financial affairs, health, and personal welfare, rather than these decisions being made by the court or someone you wouldn’t choose yourself.

A formal loan agreement clarifies the terms of a loan, including repayment schedules, interest rates, and what happens if the loan is not repaid. It’s crucial for loans between family and friends to prevent misunderstandings and disputes, providing legal protection for both the lender and the borrower.

A Declaration of Trust, also known as a Trust Deed, outlines the ownership shares and rights of each party in a property. It’s essential when property is owned by more than one person and can clarify each person’s financial stake, responsibilities, and what happens if the property is sold or if one party wants to leave the arrangement. It’s particularly useful for cohabiting couples, friends buying together, or investment properties.
