We at New Patch pride ourselves in providing an all-encompassing legal and professional consultancy service, ‘hand crafted’ to the individual needs of our clients and their families. Providing sound advice and assistance on a varied number of matters, we like to think that not only, do we ‘fill the space’ between the Citizens Advice Bureau and the traditional Solicitors office, we do so at a price that will make you smile.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE WAYS WE MAY BE ABLE TO HELP
After careful consideration of your individual circumstances, we will tailor a solution to fit your specific requirements, thus saving you unnecessary time and costs, now and in the future.
LASTING POWER OF ATTORNEY
A Lasting Power of Attorney (‘LPA’) is a legal document which enables you to appoint one or more people to act for you, should you become unable to manage your affairs or make your own decisions. There are two types of LPA; (1) Health and Welfare LPA and (2) Property and Financial Affairs LPA. You can choose to make one type of LPA or both.
COURT OF PROTECTION SERVICES
The Court of Protection aim to protect vulnerable people by ensuring their affairs are properly looked after and that no-one takes advantage of them. We provide a sensitive and comprehensive service guiding and assisting you, in obtaining a court order to manage the affairs of the person who does not have the mental capacity to do themselves.
WILLS AND PROBATE SERVICES
At one time or another, most of us consider what happens to ‘our stuff’ after we die. A properly drafted Will ensures it goes to the people and organisations we choose. If you die without making a will your estate will be divided according the Intestacy Rules which means your assets may not necessarily be divided as you would have wished.
ESTATE PLANNING SERVICES
Throughout life, we work hard to build up a nest-egg of assets which we can, when the time is right, hand over to those people closest to us. Carefully considered and bespoke solutions, crafted to suit your individual financial circumstances will ensure that future generations will benefit from your nest–egg in the way you envisage.
PROPERTY AND CONVEYANCING
With a wealth of knowledge and practical experience dealing with land law and property related issues, we can provide you with a cost effective service in connection with ‘all things property’! Including (amongst other things), probate and general sales, purchases, assessing and rectifying defective title, first registration, boundary disputes, and leasehold property matters.
VULNERABLE PERSONS ASSISTANCE
Every adult should be able to live free from fear, harm and abuse and be treated with dignity and respect. Vulnerable adults have these rights too but they can’t always protect themselves against significant harm, exploitation and abuse. We can help, guide and enable you to help and protect those vulnerable adults who are unable to look after their own affairs.
