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

What happens if I can’t afford a funeral?

What happens if you can’t afford to pay for your loved one’s funeral…or your loved ones can’t afford to pay for yours? A reporter for the Independent went undercover to find out, and was horrified to discover that relatives are being barred from some publicly funded funerals, and ashes are not being released to the families.

What does an Executor do?

The role of Executor involves collecting in all your assets, paying off your debts, and distributing your estate in accordance with your wishes. It’s a time consuming role that is a considerable responsbility, so you and your Executor(s) should be realistic about the potential challenges of the role.

Confidence Tricksters & Estate Planning…

Our attention is sometimes caught by media reports of manipulative individuals taking advantage of older or vulnerable people for financial gain.
This might be by convincing the person to change their Will, or set up a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in respect of Property and Financial Affairs, in their favour.

Representing my views on healthcare

When we become too ill to speak for ourselves we are said to have ‘lost capacity’. Necessary decisions about treatment and care will be made by medical professionals, deciding what is in our best interests and acting accordingly. For your voice to be heard, an appropriate person will have to make an application to become your Health and Welfare Deputy.
