How Can We Help?
We recommend that everyone has a will. It can safeguard your assets and ensure that they are passed onto the right people. Wills reduce administration time, minimise inheritance tax and can help to avoid disagreements. They also offer the chance to appoint guardians for your children and set up trustees for your children’s funds.
The period after a loved one’s death is difficult, emotional and confusing. At EJ Winter, we strive to make things as easy as possible for all involved.
If someone dies without a will, matters can become very complex, as an individual is required to administer his/her estate. To make it easier, we can assist with the entire process, from advising the representative to addressing tax issues and completing all paperwork.
You’ll receive clear explanations and guidance throughout the process and we endeavor to process the administration as quickly and efficiently as we can.
When age or illness renders an individual unable to make their own financial decisions, it may be necessary to appoint an attorney. We can advise you on all the available options in order to get yours, or the individual’s, personal affairs in order.
Our services include preparing or revising a will; appointing an attorney to manage personal affairs, finances or welfare; estate planning and taxes; and managing property.
Whether you’re planning for your own future or seeking help on behalf of a loved one, we can find you the best option for your property and affairs and your health and welfare. From completing the documentation to registering the Power, we will assist you at every stage.
