Jenny Shucksmith acted for an elderly lady, Miss N, for several years.
This client had no close relatives and was anxious about what would happen to her assets and estate following her death and how much inheritance tax would have to be paid. Miss N was finding it very difficult to decide who should receive what in the event of her death.
Following several home visits, Jenny was able to advise Miss N of the inheritance tax implications of her proposals and Miss N subsequently gave instructions for her Will. Following further meetings, advice and reassurance, the Will was finalised and signed by Miss N.
