Who will prepare my Will and Powers of Attorney?
Your Will and Powers of Attorney will be prepared by Rebecca D’Arcy. Rebecca qualified as a solicitor in 2003 and formerly practised in London, latterly at Collyer Bristow LLP. After having a family, Rebecca decided to establish Chiltern Wills, in order to have more flexibility in her working life than a traditional law firm role could provide. In instructing Rebecca, you will effectively be getting ‘London advice at a sensible price’.
Rebecca is professional, friendly and approachable, and has a genuine interest in her clients. She is experienced and highly qualified, holding the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (“STEP”) Diploma in Trusts and Estates, the STEP Advanced Certificate in UK Tax for International Clients, the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) Diploma and the Financial Planning Certificate. Rebecca is also a member of the Society of Will Writers.
“We recently appointed Rebecca to write our Wills alongside arranging to make our Lasting Powers of Attorney. We found her incredibly professional whilst showing compassion and a genuine understanding of our wishes. I would highly recommend her at Chiltern Wills for the perfect service she provided.”Client Review
We routinely meet clients both in person locally and all over England & Wales via virtual meetings using Skype and FaceTime, so location is no barrier. We offer flexible meeting times, including evenings, if that is most convenient for you.
In your Will, you will appoint executors to wind up your estate, and name the beneficiaries who will inherit your estate from you after your death. Wills vary greatly, and we will discuss your situation and family circumstances with you in detail, in order to ensure that we prepare exactly the right Will for you. We will ensure that your wishes are recorded accurately, so that you can benefit your loved ones in the way that you want to, and at the right time.
Powers of Attorney
In a power of attorney, you appoint trusted people to act as as your ‘attorneys’. They would be able to run your affairs for you, if you ever lost the ability to do so yourself. This could be as a result of old age, dementia, being ill, in hospital or in an accident.
Lasting powers of attorney come in two different types; a ‘lasting power of attorney for property and financial affairs’ and a ‘lasting power of attorney for health and welfare’. It is important to have both types of deed in place, to ensure that your attorneys have the full range of powers to make decisions on your behalf, if you ever lost capacity.
