As you get older, it’s important to think about what will happen to your home, your savings, and any other assets you own so you can make sure your loved ones are provided for. It’s also a good idea to consider what would happen if you experience health issues that mean you are no longer able to manage your own affairs or need to move into a care home.
Our elderly care team offer clear legal advice and empathetic support to help you make sure all of these issues are thought through and the right arrangements put in place.
Need to make or update a Will, set up a Lasting Powers of Attorney, plan for how your estate will be affected by care fees and Inheritance Tax, or deal with any issues related to lifetime planning? Our expert solicitors are here for you.
With specialist training and decades of experience, our solicitors for the elderly can help you get the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you have the right plans in place for the rest of your lifetime and your loved one’s future.

We can help you to write a new Will or amend an existing Will with codicils to reflect any change in your circumstances or wishes. While many people find the idea of making a will confusing or intimidating, our Will writing solicitors in Havant know how to make the process as simple and stress-free as possible for you.
We can make sure your wishes are accurately reflected and that there is no room for confusion or legal challenges, as well as advising you on all of the issues you may need to consider, including Inheritance Tax, creating trusts and setting up Life Interests in a property.
Setting up a lasting power of attorney (LPA) allows you to nominate a trusted loved one or loved ones to help you make important decisions about your affairs if you ever lose the capacity to do so yourself in future.
We can advise on both health and welfare LPAs and property and financial affairs LPAs, depending on the type of support you think you are likely to need in future.
Inheritance Tax (IHT) can make a big difference to the value of your estate that passes to your beneficiaries after your death. However, with proper planning, it is often possible to significantly reduce your estate’s inheritance tax liability, ensuring your loved ones receive the maximum benefit from your estate.
We can advise you on the various options within the Inheritance Tax rules to reduce your estate’s liability, including setting up trusts, making lifetime gifts and transferring ownership of property and other assets to your loved ones during your lifetime.
A common concern is that if you end up needing care support, the costs will eat into the value of your estate, meaning there is less to pass on to your loved ones.
Our solicitors can advise you on the various measures available to protect your estate from the potential impact of future care fees. That way, you can be confident of getting any support you need in future without needing to worry that you will be diminishing your loved one’s inheritance.
We understand the cost is an important consideration when seeking legal advice, so we want our fees to be clear and competitive, allowing us to offer you the personalised care and attention you deserve for a fair price.
We will clearly explain all of the likely costs involved in dealing with your matter at the outset, so you can make an informed decision about how to move forward.
Some of our services can be offered on a fixed-fee basis, so you have total certainty over the costs involved. In other cases, we will work to a set hourly rate with all billable work agreed in advance, so you can get exactly as much support as you need while staying in control of the costs involved at all times.
