Products & Services

A Trust is an arrangement where someone looks after money or property on behalf of someone else.

Trusts can be useful to manage money or property, or to preserve assets in the event of death. Trusts can also have tax saving advantages if they are set up and administered properly.

A Lasting Power of Attorney lets you appoint someone, or more than one person, to make decisions on your behalf. It is usually used when someone is no longer able to make their own decisions, and needs to be signed long in advance of this happening.

When someone can no longer manage on their own, you might need to apply to the Court of Protection to become a Deputy for them or for permission to make a decision for them.

A Deputy is someone appointed by the Court to manage that person's financial affairs and in some cases, make health or welfare decisions for them.

Whatever age you are, your Will lets you decide what happens to your money, property and possessions after your death.

By making a Will, you can also direct assets away from nursing home fees and make sure you don't pay more inheritance tax than you need to.

When someone dies, it is usually necessary to deal with the winding up of their estate. This means sorting out their property and money in accordance with their Will or if there is no Will, in accordance with the law that applies in each case.

Customer Testimonials

It would be difficult to improve on any area of your services. Rachel was thorough, professional, supportive and advised us well in the preparation of our Wills.

I very much appreciated the considerable efforts that you made and that you kept your charges to a minimum

What we asked for was completed in time and on a very high professional level. Lovely, friendly advice and very professional.

Extremely satisfied and would recommend Roche Legal. The home visit service was very useful.

Rachel provided me with very proactive and efficient legal advice, clearly setting out the available options and dealing with the necessary paperwork in a timely manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others who are in need of the legal services she provides.

When I worked at a Solicitors office based in Evesham a few years ago I worked with Rachel. It was my first paid admin job after leaving College and I found Rachel to be helpful and very professional. I would highly recommend her services.
