Sarah Mellor Wills and Probate Solicitor

I specialise in the preparation of wills, including mirror wills, life interest wills and nil rate band discretionary trust wills. I advise on the impact of inheritance tax and how it can be reduced or even avoided with careful planning through the use of a will.

With experience in dealing with estate administration, for both taxable and non-taxable estates, I advise executors and beneficiaries on a wide range of practical administration and taxation issues. I also have experience in dealing with estates including Spanish property.

I prepare and look after people’s affairs under enduring powers of attorney and also undertake Court of Protection work, having been appointed by the court as a Receiver to manage the financial affairs of those who are unable to do so themselves.
