If you die without making a Will your estate will not necessarily pass on to whom you want.


Will Writing

Wills are not just for passing on your estate. They can be used for Inheritance Tax planning, appointing Guardians for children, passing on businesses, protecting assets from care costs etc.


Long Term Care

Steps can be taken to protect assets from being sold to pay for long term care fees.


Lasting Power of Attorney

If you have mental incapacity no one (including spouses and close family) has automatic rights to take over your affairs.


Business Succession

If you are a owner of a business will it continue after your death?


Inheritance Tax

How do you reduce the impact of inheritance tax?


Document Storage

Do you and your family know where your Wills are kept?


Probate &
Estate Administration

Do you need help in administering an estate?


Welcome to my website, which I hope will give you a background to the issues surrounding all aspects of inheritance planning – Wills, Inheritance Tax, Care home fees, Mental Capacity. The website can only give a brief overview of these issues. Everyone has their own personal circumstances which should be discussed privately to derive the correct solution.

will writers, The Moneta Partnership Ltd

I am a founding director of The Moneta Partnership Ltd and trade under the name of The Moneta Partnership. I am a Fellow of the Institute of Paralegals (elected September 2015).

I am based in Hainault, Essex and visit my clients at a time and place of their choosing (usually at home). This visit is free and without obligation. After ascertaining the client’s needs I will advise on the documents that need to be produced and agree a price, that is paid on delivery of the documents.

I cover all of north, east and central London and west Essex but am prepared to travel further.

Most of my clients come from word of mouth recommendations or introductions from IFAs or accountants.

I also give talks (free of charge) to various groups, such as pensioners’ forums and NHS retirement clubs and Redbridge Carers Support Service.
