Kate is a member of the Probate, Wills and Trusts Unit.  Kate specialises in the preparation of wills, providing inheritance tax advice, advice on care home fees, applications to the Court of Protection, Lasting Powers of Attorney, General Powers of Attorney, advising Attorneys and Deputies on their duties, the administration of estates and the administration of trusts.

Examples of matters Kate has advised upon include:

  • The preparation of Wills for a couple who own agricultural, foreign and business property worth several million pounds.  Kate advised upon the most tax efficient way of distributing their estates.
  • The administration of estates for a married couple who died at about the same time as each other.  Their wills involved Nil Rate Band Discretionary Trusts.  Kate dealt with the assets in the estate on behalf of the executors including selling the house and selling share portfolios.  She negotiated the inheritance tax payable on the estates with HMRC on behalf of the executors.
  • Acting as attorney for a lady who was physically unable to deal with her own affairs.  She held a large estate including property, investments and shares.  Kate dealt with everything for her, from paying bills to entering into discussions with independent financial advisers to ensure that the assets were being invested properly.
  • Acting for a lady whose daughter died insolvent.  The client’s daughter had several debts and liabilities and Kate ensured that any funds that were available were paid to the creditors in the correct order to prevent any claims against her client personally.
  • A large estate in which the residue was given to several charities.
  • Applications to the Court of Protection for Health and Welfare Deputyship Orders, Statutory Wills and Trustee Act Applications.
  • The general administration of a local charitable trust which was established in the 17th century.
