Wills in Heanor & Derby
We understand that writing a will is not necessarily a pleasant thing to do, but it is a very important one. National statistics show that a third of people die without making a will, and this can cause numerous problems for the loved ones who are left behind. It also means that the deceased cannot guarantee that any assets left behind will be shared out as he or she had intended.
At Broadbents Solicitors we pride ourselves on being experts on writing wills in Heanor that take into account the sensitive nature of the process. Teresa Ruddock will personally deal with your matter and has over 10 years’ experience in this field.

Lasting Powers of Attorney
These are extremely useful documents to have in place so that should you lose your mental capacity or be physically unable to manage your affairs, you have an appointed attorney(s) to manage your affairs for you. Without such a document someone has to apply to the Court of Protection to become your Deputy. This person may not be someone you would have chosen had you prepared a Lasting Power of Attorney before losing capacity. The Court fees and annual fees are well worth avoiding.
Please contact Teresa Ruddock on 01773 832511 for any further information or an appointment to have a Lasting Power of Attorney prepared.
