Would like to thank Karen McCormick for her professionalism in acting on our behalf when purchasing our new shared ownership house. She was polite and dealt with our purchase in a speedy manner
Karen McCormick was fantastic at explaining the processes involved in purchasing our garage. We came across many difficulties and Karen kept us up to date regarding developments and ensured we understood any implications before advising us how to proceed. She ensured where there was the need we were insured against potential future implications so we had peace of mind to exchange and complete. Thank you Gard and Co for providing a superb service!
I used them to purchase my home and it was a great decision, I had to do very little because they had it all covered. What's more is they offer discount to military personnel. Great firm.

The Gard & Co private client department have been receiving numerous calls from concerned clients in relation to Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney. Many wish to update an existing Will or make a new one and we are being asked whether or not this can be done under the current social distancing guidelines. Of course with the current lockdown and social distancing many clients are concerned as to how they can get their wills witnessed. It is a formal requirement that a Will is in a written format (handwritten or typed) and it must be signed by the testator (person making the Will) in the presence of two witnesses who must see the testator sign.

Jane specialises in the production of wills, powers of attorney and trusts, tax planning, administering estates, advising the elderly, court of protection work and the provision of executorship services. I must also mention the professional way your staff has dealt with my phone calls from Australia. They were exemplary in the way they dealt with my enquiries.' The wills are, we believe, not just well written and take good beneficial account of matters such as inheritance tax but also accord exactly with our wishes.
