Private Client

Our Private Client team deals with a broad spectrum of matters and often deals with complex requirements for a wide assortment of clients.

Whilst our particular focus is on Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Administration of Estates and Trusts, we are also able to advise on matters in relation to Inheritance Tax advice, Probate Reseals, establishing charities and Court of Protection matters.

Additional Services

If you own assets over £23,250 (including the value of your home), you are usually expected to pay for all of your own care. When you go into care your Local Authority will carry out a financial assessment to see if you are entitled to any state funding. With the threshold being as low as it is, many people do not qualify and will be expected to pay the full fees, and with the average weekly cost of care being £600, many people are taking steps to ensure that care home fees do not use up their hard-earned cash, or their loved one’s future inheritance.

If you have established a Charity, you may find that its current structure no longer suits your needs. We can advise you on the advantages and disadvantages of the alternative charitable structures that are available.

BBS are able to assist on a number of Court of Protection matters, including:

  • Court of Protection Applications
  • Professional Deputyship Services
  • Court of Protection Disputes

When a person dies, it is possible for the beneficiaries of the estate to make changes to the distribution of the estate. These changes are made by a Deed of Variation. A Deed of Variation can be used where the deceased left a Will, but also where they died intestate.
