Wills, Estates and Powers of Attorney

A well drafted Will helps make sure your assets end up where you want them to. It also significantly reduces the costs of administering your estate after you have gone. Morton & Morton can help ensure your Will is properly drafted to reflect your wishes.

Enduring Powers of Attorney are becoming more common and can be useful. Effectively, an Enduring Power of Attorney authorises someone else to make decisions for you. We can help you decide whether you want to grant power of attorney to someone, who you might appoint, when they can make decisions for you and make sure you fully understand the effect of granting a Power of Attorney. Most Wills and Powers of Attorney attract a fixed fee. We will tell you in advance how much it will cost.

  • Wills
  • Enduring Powers of Attorneys
  • General Powers of attorneys
  • Advance health Directives
  • Estate planning issues
  • Administration of Estates
  • Estate Litigation including interpretation of Wills and claims both for and against Estates
