Simpson Jones Solicitors

We have purposely made a decision to specialise and focus on property (both residential and commercial) and wills and probate, because these are our areas of expertise and where our real passion lies.

No two property transactions are ever the same. Whether it is an odd restrictive covenant from 100 years ago, an issue with a right of way, or some unregistered land, we will work with you and for you to overcome any problems and ensure that your sale and purchase process runs smoothly and any risks are minimised.

Likewise, planning your legal affairs such as your wills, lasting powers of attorney or planning for care fees are vitally important decisions, but can be very complex. In addition, when you or your loved ones die, that person’s estate must be administered and it is essential that it is done properly.

Our specialist advisers can advise you and guide you, at what can be a very emotional time, in making those important decisions.

We care greatly about our people and our philosophy for client care extends itself throughout the firm.

We understand that when you are going through such important legal processes, that you want the best service from your legal team who you have chosen to work with. We make sure that you are kept informed all of the way through the process in a completely jargon-free way.

Our team at Simpson Jones Solicitors are happy to provide you with a quote over the phone or by email of our fees and answer any initial questions that you may have.

When buying with the assistance of mortgage finance it is usual for the solicitor who acts in the purchase to be instructed by the lender to act for them at the same time. For this to happen the solicitor acting for the buyer will need to be accepted on the mortgage lenders Solicitors’ Panel. I am pleased to confirm that Simpson Jones Solicitors are experienced and dedicated conveyancers. We are proud to be chosen by most of the major lenders including Halifax, HSBC, Santander, Nationwide, Virgin Money etc as Panel Solicitors.

Simpson Jones Solicitors are members of the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme. This is accepted by various lenders and the property industry as a quality benchmark.

Our Services

Wills.

Your Will is one of the most important things you will do in your lifetime. If you have any children, a house or any money, you must have a Will. If you do not have one then a set of old fashioned rules called the intestacy rules will say where your money goes. We can assist you with putting your Wills in place properly to ensure that your wishes are carried out.

Lasting power of attorney.

If you should ever need help in managing your affairs whilst you are still alive, this document will enable you to choose who you want to help you. We can advise you of the different types of powers of attorney and can prepare and deal with the registration of them for you to ensure that they are done correctly and are ready to use for your family as and when needed.

Probate.

Losing a loved one is likely to be one of the most devastating and stressful times of your life. We are highly experienced in dealing with the legal administration of a person’s affairs when they pass away. Whether that person has left a Will or not, we can deal with the entire estate for you, taking the pressure off you and your family at what can be a very emotional time.

Care fees and tax & trusts planning.

You cannot deliberately deprive the government of your money to avoid paying care fees. Likewise, you cannot deliberately try and avoid paying tax such as inheritance tax. However, there are ways to plan your affairs to minimise and sometimes completely remove the effects of both of these charges on your finances. We can advise you of what you need to do in order to protect yours and your family’s assets.

Court of protection.

Sadly, as we get older, we are more likely to develop illnesses of the mind which sometimes can lead to us losing our mental capacity. If your loved one has not put a lasting power of attorney in place, a deputyship application to this court may be necessary in order for you to help them in managing their affairs. We can guide and advise you throughout this whole process.
