SOCIAL WELFARE AND HOUSING

SOCIAL WELFARE

The welfare benefits system is full of complex and technical rules, it can be very scary for a claimant to be told they are going to lose the benefits that they have become reliant on, or are going to be subject to an accusation of benefit fraud which could lead to a prison sentence and having to repay overpaid benefits.

Getting the correct advice and assistance early can help you in getting the right result and defending your position.

We have over 10 years’ experience in social security law and are experienced in presenting cases before the Social Security Tribunal. Legal aid public funding is no longer available for welfare benefits appeals but we can offer a fixed fee service in the following types of welfare benefits matters:

WILLS AND PROBATE

At Sunnyfields Solicitors we have  our Solicitor who is  experienced in all aspects of Wills & Probate and can offer expert legal advice to our clients across all aspects of Wills, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney and application to Court of Protection to become a deputy.

Our specialist Wills & Probate solicitors advise our clients on matters including:

  • Will Drafting
  • Probate & Estate Administration
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Appointment of Guardians
  • Court of Protection applications

Lasting Power of Attorney:

A Lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document that lets you (the ‘donor’) appoint one or more people (known as ‘attorneys’) to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf.

This gives you more control over what happens to you if you have an accident or an illness and cannot make your own decisions (you ‘lack mental capacity’).

You must be 18 or over and have mental capacity (the ability to make your own decisions) when you make your LPA.

Deputy:

You can apply to the Court of Protection to become someone’s deputy if they ‘lack mental capacity’. This means they cannot make a decision for themselves at the time it needs to be made. They may still be able to make decisions for themselves at certain times.

People may lack mental capacity because, for example:

  • they’ve had a serious brain injury or illness
  • they have dementia
  • they have severe learning disabilities

As a deputy, you’ll be authorised by the Court of Protection to make decisions on their behalf.

Contact our Solicitor at Sunnyfields Solicitors for further information.

By understanding our clients’ individual requirements, we can look after their interests to ensure we provide the best possible legal advice, every time.

The importance of writing a will cannot be over emphasised It is important to write your Will because if you die without a Will, there are laid down rules which dictate how your property and possessions will be allocated and this will not necessarily reflect your wish on the way you want your possessions distributed amongst your loved ones. We make the will writing process simple and explain all you need to know in easy to understand terms.

Contact us at Sunnyfields Solicitors for more information or to have a chat about any questions you may have.
