Our Wills & Probate department deals with all wills, probate, property planning, Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection matters.

We pride ourselves in providing a personal, helpful service covering all aspects of your requirements including the drafting of wills and testamentary advice to probate and assistance when things go wrong, including contentious probate matters and court proceedings.

We make General Powers of Attorney so that someone in your family can sign for you e.g. if you sell but live abroad.  If you are worried about losing mental or physical capacity, we can make a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) for your family.  We deal with the registration of these, so you can give them e.g. to your bank or doctor. 


We offer services in respect of Probate.  Our team at Youngs offer straightforward professional advice at every stage of estate administration.

We can advise on Probate; Estate Administration; Challenging a Will.  We can deal with the whole of the administration or can simply obtain the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration.

Lasting Powers of Attorney:

Being prepared for the future a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows you to appoint people who you trust to step in and make decisions for you if you lose the capacity to make decisions for yourself.

These can be Financial Decisions or decisions in respect of Health and Care.  We can advise you on the benefits of making either or both types of LPA and can guide you through the process of the Application and Registration.

Court of Protection

We can help with any application to the Court of Protection.  You may want advice or assistance in applying to be appointed as a Deputy, or you may already be either acting as an Attorney or Deputy and need to make an application to the Court of Protection. We can provide advice on the application process itself and support the Deputy in their role once appointed.
