Private Client

If you need a solicitor to help you with any legal work relating to your home or planning for the future, the chances are you need a private client solicitor. At Hancocks, we separate this from family law.

When you are buying a home, you’ll need to talk to our residential conveyancing solicitors. You will find they are knowledgable and helpful.

Whether or not you own a home or have a family, we advise you to think about your future. It’s important to choose someone to help you if you are unable to help yourself following an accident or an illness. If you set up a Power of Attorney, you’ll know that there is someone on hand to look after your affairs if you can’t.

When someone dies, it is a huge help to their family if they have written a Will. This will make it much easier to manage probate and answer questions about Inheritance Tax. You might also decide to set up a Trust to control the way your money is used after you die.

The law can be confusing and the language can seem old-fashioned. We will make it easy for you to understand exactly what is going on when you work with our Private Client team. When we work with our elderly clients (or any other vulnerable clients) we take extra care and we have specialist solicitors to help you or your relatives.
