Lasting Power of Attorney, Probate and Estate Administration
Dawn Clarkson is pleased to offer a professional and competitively priced probate service, trading as Wills and Estate Planning Ltd.
Dawn is one of the first accountants in the North of England to be accredited and licensed by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) to provide this service. Previously it has been a service reserved for solicitors and the legal departments of the major banks.
We are an affiliate member of STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners), a worldwide professional organisation. Our service offers you the peace of mind that your interests are being protected by a trusted organisation.
The services which we can offer are:
Lasting Power of Attorney:
It is often something we do not think about but if you become ill it is important that you organise your financial and legal affairs while you are still able to do so. This ensures that in the future, your affairs are set up in a way you have chosen and that the person you have appointed to act as your ‘attorney’ follows the decisions you have made when you have become too ill to make these decisions for yourself.

Probate and Estate Administration:

As well as making life easier for your dependents, making a Will can help reduce the tax payable. We will give you our 'Will Questionnaire' to help you think of every aspect of what you can include in your Will. We will talk you through your options, giving you the time to help you make the right decisions. Our Will writing tariff starts at £125.00 per person, or £195.00 per married couple or registered civil partners who wish to leave all their assets to each other.
