Home Visits & Priority Service

Appointments are available at our office, in Bicester town centre, during the working day or on a Saturday morning.  Please telephone us or use our online booking system to schedule your consultation.

We offer a home visit service to those who may not be able to visit our office.  Find out more below.

We offer a priority service to those who need to have their documents drawn up as a matter of urgency.  Find out more below.

Please get in contact by telephone to book your appointment with us at the location and time most convenient for you.

Home Visits

We appreciate that it is not possible for everyone to attend our offices during our opening hours. We pride ourselves on offering a service that is accessible to each of our clients, without exception.

To facilitate those for whom mobility is difficult, or time is at a premium, we offer off site appointments in the home, hospice or workplace.

We can advise on and draw up your Will, set up a Lasting Power of Attorney, create a Trust, advise on Prepaid Funeral Plans or help you obtain a Grant of Probate and administer a deceased person’s estate.

Each of our estate planning services attract a fixed fee. You can find the fees on the website or, if a fee is not listed, when you telephone us. Booking a home visit will not incur any additional charges.

During our visit, we would be glad to answer any questions you have about estate planning and management.  Please let us know when booking the appointment which of our services you wish to discuss.

Priority Service

Cients or their families regularly instruct us at short notice to advise on and draw up a Will, LPA, Advance Decision or other documentation.

We attend the client without delay, often in a hospital or hospice setting, and prioritise the preparating and finalising of their documentation.  This is our priority service.

If you or your family member needs to meet with us as soon as possible, we will be glad to do so to ensure your peace of mind.

Each of our estate planning services attract a fixed fee, payable on completion of the documentation. You can find the fees on the website or, if a fee is not listed, when you telephone us.

Using our priority service costs £100, which will be invoiced within 14 days of the booking being made.

Making your will is never something to look forward to, but Gail made the whole process nice and simple

The cost of dying is on the up again

Of course there’s a cost to dying! But when we die, we’re not there to foot the bill, so why should we worry?
The thing is, it can be tricky – or impossible – for loved ones to come up with a significant sum of money at the time of a death. (The costs & infographics in this blog post are taken from SunLife (2018), Cost of Dying Report.)

Why not write a Will?

If you don’t have a Will…perhaps it is because you’ve simply never thought about it? 55% of adults in Britain still do not have a Will, and yet disputes about inheritance are on the increase. Writing a Will is the only way to ensure your exact wishes are known to your friends and family when you are not actually there to spell it out.

Are you prepared for all eventualities?

Sudden incapacitation, deteriorating illness or loss of ability to communicate means you may no longer be able to state your wishes at a time when you most want to be heard. Would it give you peace of mind to know that your affairs will be dealt with by someone you trust? With an LPA, you can rest assured that the person speaking for you is chosen and trusted by you.
