The law governing inheritance and related matters is a complicated area requiring specialist advice and we will ensure that your interests are looked after, by providing advice that is tailored to your particular situation.
Having a proper legal Will is the only way to ensure that your assets are disposed of as you wish in a tax-advantageous way. If there is a change in your circumstances such as marriage, children or a family break-up then you should review your Will in order to take account of such changes. We will make sure that your instructions for the distribution of your assets after your death are properly expressed in your Will.
Trusts can be useful for tax-planning purposes, as they can be used within Wills to redistribute assets within the family. We can establish and manage Trusts and wind up those that have come to a natural end. We also carry out ongoing administration and annual accounts for all types of Trust.
We are experienced at winding up Estates of all sizes, whether large or small, simple or complex. We can also assist with post-death planning using Deeds of Variation.
Powers of Attorney
If you require someone to act on your behalf, then we can prepare the appropriate documentation and thereafter provide an administrative service for Attorneys.
Agriculture and Rural
Land is a key asset for most rural businesses and it is important to ensure that that asset is protected and useful. We regularly provide advice to farmers and other rural businesses in connection with purchase sale and leasing of agricultural land. Increasingly diversification is becoming a vital aspect of rural business so whether you are considering a renewable energy project, a telecoms mast, a potato let or anything else, we can provide you with the expert legal advice that will be vital to ensuring your project is a success.
Agricultural Tenancies are becoming an increasingly regulated area and failure to follow the correct procedures can lead to serious and long lasting consequences. Wyllie & Henderson can provide the expert legal advice required to ensure that your interests are protected.
A telecoms mast is often presented as an easy way to get a return from otherwise unprofitable land. However, the law implies terms in to the contract for telecommunications infrastructure even if they are not mentioned in discussions or the paperwork. Getting expert legal advice before you agree terms and sign papers is vital.
Land is the most valuable asset most people and businesses own. Voluntary registration can ensure it is protected and make future transactions easier and cheaper. More information is available from the Registers of Scotland here. Please give us a call to discuss how we can assist.
