Welcome to this month’s edition of Private Client Issues, Blake Morgan’s monthly round-up of the topics you may find of interest. It features insight and advice on developments affecting private individuals.
Our teams work both from our offices and remotely and are happy to meet with you virtually, or in person where this is preferred. We have found that many clients prefer the convenience of a video meeting, whilst other prefer face to face, particularly for the first meeting.
What do we mean by intestacy?
When someone dies without leaving a valid Will, their estate is referred to as being ‘intestate’ rather than ‘testate’. As a result, the intestacy rules in England and Wales will apply.
How do ‘leave to remove’ applications work?
How does it work if you are separating and looking to move abroad with children? You can make a leave to remove application.
Ethical investments – when can a trustee go green?
Increasingly trustees are saying that they would like to have more ethical investments in their portfolios. Unfortunately, it is not that simple. We look into when you can invest ethically.

What do you need to know when it comes to drafting a Will? We look into the treatment of debt, the true value of your estate and charitable giving.
