    Spring clean your legal affairs

    Polish up your family’s legal affairs and protect them from the unknown with the help of Hegarty Solicitors

    Spring is a time when many of us focus on organising our households and belongings. It is also the perfect time to reflect on your current legal position. Our expert legal team at Hegarty Solicitors offer a comprehensive service to support you.

    A great time to move house

    The Stamp Duty Holiday on house purchases has been extended until 30 June 2021. The scheme has helped hundreds of thousands of people to buy a home and it is estimated that the extension may benefit 300,000 additional property purchases in England. If you are thinking of taking advantage of the stamp duty holiday, or you think it is time to move house, our experienced conveyancing specialists will guide you through the process and ensure your property purchase is as smooth and stress-free as possible. Use our online calculator to find out how much your conveyancing will cost for your purchase.

    Family legal protection for finances and healthcare

    None of us know what is around the corner, but having plans in place to ensure both you and your family have the legal protection needed to make critical decisions about your health, welfare and finances, when you need it most is one of the most important things you can do to protect your family. Recent research by Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE), shows that 65% of us think our next-of-kin will make medical and care decisions for us if we are no longer able to. In reality, this isn’t the case unless a Health & Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney is in place. Whilst there has been a rise in the number of enquiries made about Lasting Power of Attorneys (LPAs) during the pandemic, only 22% of people in the UK actually have one. Quite often wills and LPAs are seen as issues to be dealt with later in life, however all adults should have plans in place to ensure their wishes are protected and their family has the legal protection to access funds and make decisions should the worst happen. Our experienced team at Hegarty Solicitors can guide you through your options and ensure your affairs are managed according to your wishes. Find out more here
