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

Make your voice heard!

Legally, you can have someone else to speak for you if you’re no longer able to do so. You need to complete and register a Lasting Power of Attorney to give the person or people you trust the legal power to be your voice.
There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), and at the moment a lot of people are setting up Health & Welfare LPAs.

Having tough conversations

People who are already vulnerable are concerned about the Coronavirus.  People working on the front line in healthcare, public transport, and other key roles know that they are risking their health and that of those they live with.
Talking about healthcare wishes, talking about financial and funeral arrangements, talking about Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney… Big topics.

Making a Will or LPA from home

You won’t be surprised to learn that the COVID-19 outbreak has made lots of people think about their Will, or who will help them with their money or decisions about medical treatment if they are hospitalised. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to have peace of mind about these things. You can access any of our services by telephone consultation, and do not need to visit us in our office or invite us to your home.

How do I manage the money when someone dies?

When someone dies, their money and possessions have to be sorted out.  If they had a Will, there will be named Executors who take this on. If they did not have a Will, then usually the next of kin is the person responsible. These people are legally allowed to manage the ‘estate’, and are known as the Personal Representatives (PRs).
