Wills and powers of attorney

People often find planning for the worst a daunting task, but at MJV & Co we take any stress and hassle away from you by providing expert advice to suit the needs and individual circumstances of our clients. We will make you aware of everything you need to know to allow you to make the correct decisions for you, your family and their future.

There are many things for you to consider in addition to your will such as potential care costs in later life, powers of attorney and inheritance tax, but we will talk you through these clearly so you can make the correct decisions for you and your family.

We currently offer wills for £60 for an individual will or £100 for a couple. These prices include VAT and there are no hidden extras, but if your will involves complex trusts or tax planning we may have to charge extra. However, for the vast majority of people the price above is the price you pay and, if not, we will tell you before you incur any costs.

Many people also wish to appoint an attorney to look after their interests should they need help when they get older. We will talk you through your options and powers of attorney are available for just £200 inclusive of VAT plus the court fee.

Appointments are available either at our meeting room in the centre of Cleveleys or home appointments are available in Fleetwood, Cleveleys, Thornton, Poulton-le-Fylde and across the Fylde Coast.

Call us today on 01253 858231 or e-mail info@mjvandco.co.uk to discuss your needs or arrange an appointment.

Cavity Wall Claims

Around the country, there are potentially hundreds of thousands of homes suffering from damp and the problems that come with it as a result of cavity wall insulation.

Consumers were sold on cavity wall insulation based on its energy efficiency, but many of the firms who fitted it ignored the requirements of the British Standards for fitting and installing it in homes that were never and will be never suitable.

If you or someone you know has a problem with damp in their exterior walls and has cavity wall insulation it may be that the two are linked – even if they have not yet realised it.

Cavity wall insulation claims have been dubbed the “new PPI”, but unlike PPI claims expert evidence from surveyors is required along with specialist legal knowledge if your claim for damage caused by cavity wall insulation is to be successful.

At MJV & Co, we can assist you in making a claim for the damage to be rectified and, in many cases, no win no fee is available.

So choose MJV & Co Solicitors, a leading firm in cavity wall insulation claims to assist you in obtaining justice.
