We deal with all aspects of the purchase and sale of residential property. We offer an experienced, thorough and efficient service to our clients whether first time buyers or experienced movers. We will take the time to explain the process and ensure that you are always aware of what is happening.
We fully appreciate that moving home is a stressful time and we strive to ensure that the move is as stress-free as possible.
"Thank you so much for all of your help and support over the last few months. We really don't know what we would have done without you!" - Mr and Mrs Lindsay, Burntisland
As people live longer it is inevitable that some will lose mental capacity whilst others may lose capacity as a consequence of an accident/illness. Accordingly, it is advisable to appoint an Attorney (i.e. a trusted family member or friend who you appoint to look after your affairs) before you lose capacity as to do so afterwards is not legally possible. Appointing a family member/friend as Attorney can make their task of caring for you a lot easier as failure to do so will result in having to raise a Court action to have a Guardian appointed which is stressful, costly and time consuming.
Likewise, it is advisable to prepare Wills so that your wishes are clear. Once again, having a Will can make life easier for those who have to deal with your affairs following your death. It is never too early to prepare a Will and such events as marriage, the birth of children, divorce and retiral are an opportune time to consider the matter. We are happy to undertake home visits if required.
"It has been a pleasure doing business with you." - Mr Cowan, Glenrothes
The death of a loved one is both a distressing and stressful experience. We have a dedicated and experienced team to help you (the executor/s) deal with the legal implications relating to assets belonging to the deceased. We can support you with our friendly and compassionate yet thorough approach during this difficult time.
There is no such thing as a standard executry as every estate and situation is different. We are able to deal with testate cases (i.e. where someone has died leaving a Will) and also with intestate cases (i.e. where someone has died without a Will). We can help shoulder the responsibility of dealing with everything from start to finish, ingathering the necessary information on your behalf, dealing with the Sheriff Court in relation to the Application for Confirmation and ingathering the estate assets thereafter right through to distribution of the estate, to allow you the time you need to grieve.
Experience has shown us that the average time to wind up a straightforward estate is between six months (i.e. after expiry of the claim period) and a year. We will of course keep you informed at all times and confirm the likely timescales from the outset.
We are happy to undertake home visits if required.

We provide advice on care costs and also what steps can be taken with a view to minimising the effect of inheritance tax on your estate.
Early attention to this matter is essential as failure to act timeously can limit significantly the steps which you may effectively take.
