Scanlon Ewing can help you with:
Buying and selling property can be one of the most stressful experiences you will have. From your initial contact with us when we can advise you on the local market, through the procedure involved in submitting or accepting an offer, to the point where you collect the keys of your new house we will look after your business and ensure that it is conducted as efficiently as possible. Conveyancing work also includes the legal work involved in re-mortgaging, transferring title deeds or discharging your mortgage security if you are lucky enough to have paid the mortgage off! Please note that we have a strict anti money laundering policy and will require evidence of source of funds for this type of business.
Powers of Attorney
Many clients are conscious of the need to make a Will but do not consider what will happen to their affairs during their lifetime if they are unable to deal with these themselves. A Power of Attorney allows you to authorise your family or trusted friends to help you with business decisions during your lifetime and to make decisions about your personal welfare or care if you are unable to do so yourself. Ever more authorities are insisting that they will only deal with a third party if a Power of Attorney is in place. We can make home visits or hospital or care home visits for clients by arrangement.
With more complicated family structures it is more important than ever to consider whether you should have a Will to allow you to determine who should inherit your assets. Even with small or uncomplicated estates however it can often be more straightforward and less expensive to administer the estate if a Will has been written. We can give advice on what would be the best option for you.
With many years’ experience in dealing with executry administration we pride ourselves in offering a sympathetic and professional service to assist you in dealing with the estate of a loved one. We appreciate that at a time of bereavement, more than ever, clients need to have confidence in the solicitor handling the estate and to know that matters are being handled efficiently and competently.
