Below are just some of the main services which ‘Rebecca Calvert Legal Services’
offers so please get in touch if you have any other matters you wish to discuss.

WILLS & TRUSTS

For some reason many people delay sorting their Will. 

I can provide expert legal advice in relation to the drafting and execution of your Will, to ensure that your wishes are followed. In doing so, I will look at your potential liability to Inheritance Tax and attempt to mitigate such liability so far as possible. Dependant upon your specific circumstances, I can provide specialist advice in relation to trusts and the use of a trust within your Will.

POWERS OF ATTORNEY

These are an essential part of estate planning.

I can see you through the process of putting in place Lasting Powers of Attorney, in respect of both ‘Property & Finance’ and ‘Health & Care’ so that both you and your family are covered should the worst happen. Also including ‘General Powers of Attorney’ and registration of the older-style ‘Enduring Powers of Attorney’.

COURT OF PROTECTION

This type of application is required in the unfortunate event that someone does not or no longer has sufficient mental capacity to attend to their financial affairs or personal welfare and where Lasting Powers of Attorney were not put in place.

This requires an application to the Court of Protection for the appointment of a ‘Deputy’.

Rather like an ‘Attorney’ under a Lasting Power of Attorney, the Deputy is then legally able to act on the person’s behalf. This can also involve applications from a ‘Health & Welfare’ perspective in certain situations.

PROBATE & ESTATE ADMINISTRATION

In the unfortunate event that you are faced with the loss of a loved one, dealing with the legal side of administering an estate can be a minefield.

I can see you through the process of estate administration.

Including contentious probate matters, whether you’re an Executor/Trustee, a Beneficiary or someone who feels that they should have been provided for.

EMPLOYMENT

I can offer advice in relation to many elements of Employment Law.

This includes in particular, advice through the redundancy process and acting in relation to Settlement Agreements.

COMMERCIAL

I can offer advice in relation to all matters to do with Commercial leases.

This includes:

  • New leases
  • Lease renewals
  • Lease surrenders
  • Lease transfers
  • Specialist advice relating to all aspects of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954
