Executry & Estate Administration

Scotland executaryLosing a loved one to a critical illness, or in an accident or indeed in any other way is an extremely upsetting and stressful experience. Carrying on with your day to day life can seem like a challenge and even the most mundane of tasks can be a struggle. If you are unfortunate enough to experience this legal matters will seem utterly unimportant compared to everything else you are going through. However, during such a stressful time you are at risk of falling into financial and legal trouble if affairs are not put in order.

Taking care of the details surrounding a loved one’s life can be emotionally exhausting and the added pressure of having to settle matters and organise finances can seem overwhelming. That is where our expert solicitors can help.

Unite Scotland’s lawyers are experts at handling all of the complex legal issues which can arise when someone dies. They can deal with all the legalities in a way that is unobtrusive, compassionate and will allow the family to focus on the emotional impact of losing a loved one.

The Unite Scotland’s Confirmation Scheme guarantees that members will never pay more than [2.5 or 3]% of the gross value of their estate when death occurs. You know exactly what to expect and clear peace of mind.

Creating a Power of Attorney is just as important as having a Will.

This is simply a legal document appointing someone to act on your behalf if you become unable to make decisions for yourself in the future. A relative can no longer just “step in” – instead they face an expensive and lengthy court process.

Unite Scotland members automatically receive a £100 discount on the cost of creating a Power of Attorney.

For further information contact your local Unite office.

A Living Will – which is entirely different from your Last Will & Testament – sets down your wishes regarding medical treatment which you may or may not wish to receive in the future.

The British Medical Association encourages the use of Living Wills and increasing numbers of our clients are approaching us to put these in place.

Unite Scotland members can have their Living Will created at a discounted rate.
