Inheritance tax law and inheritance tax planning is a specialist area for Milners – from writing a will, through to establishing a trust to protect a loved one’s inheritance.
We have a team of experienced inheritance solicitors in Leeds, Harrogate and Pontefract, that pool together unrivalled experience in all forms of inheritance law.
This includes wills, trusts, probate and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA).
A Lasting Power of Attorney is when you appoint someone to make decisions on your behalf regarding your finances, property or health and welfare. We can also advise on commercial LPAs which give specific instructions on how and who should run your business if you lose the capacity (temporarily or permanently) to make decisions.
We have written this article about Lasting Power of Attorney which will give you an insight into why it has such a key role to play in inheritance tax planning.
Our inheritance law specialism also extends to probate disputes and contentious probate. Probate is the legal process for dealing with acquiring permission to deal with someone’s estate after they have died.
Making a will is the only way to ensure your estate– your belongings, your savings and other assets – goes to the people you want.
We can help and advise you in writing a will. We make the process of writing a will as straightforward as possible.
Without writing a will, inheritance law decides who benefits and this may not be what you want.
For example, if you’re not married or in a civil partnership, then without a will your surviving partner won’t automatically inherit any part of your estate.
Our trusts and estates department provides sensitive and professional help and advice on inheritance tax planning, trusts and settlements, probate and administration of estates, as well as nursing home issues.
Many of our clients come to us for inheritance advice and inheritance planning on more complex matters such as:
