How can we help? A guide to services for you

Operating from our Lancashire offices (Preston, Blackpool & The Fylde and Blackburn), our Kendal office in Cumbria and our office in Southport, we offer a professional and approachable service to assist with a wide range of personal legal issues.

Starting out

If you are buying your first home and need assistance with conveyancing, our dedicated Residential Property team are on hand to guide you through the process. Check out our key stages of buying and selling property for more information on how the process works. We can also assist with co-habitation agreements if you’re buying with another person, and also pension and investment advice when you start on the career ladder.

Family life

If you are planning to get married, there are a number of different services we can assist with – pre-nuptial agreements, writing of a new Will (or amending an existing one) and wealth management advice. Have a look at our fixed fee services for clarity on costs.

Children leaving home

With your family growing up and leaving home, you may be looking to downsize your property or review your finances. It may also be the right time to review your parent’s care – you may find our page on Lasting Powers of Attorney useful.

Relationship breakdown

The breakdown of a relationship can be difficult on all those involved. Our Family team can help with separation agreements, child arrangements, and alternatives to court proceedings such as collaboration and arbitration. They will also be able to assist with the financial implications of divorce and distribution of assets.

Marrying again?

If you are making a fresh start with a new relationship, it may be time to review your plans and assess what you already have in place. We can help with pre-nuptial agreements, rewriting of a Will, and also sale and purchase of property. Napthens Wealth Management deals with succession planning for business owners and overall financial advice.

Planning for later years

Our Wills and Estate Planning team can assist with planning for future care, including a Letter of Wishes to be kept with your Will. We can also help you make arrangements for dealing with the loss of physical and mental capacity, ensuring that you are well looked after in accordance with your wishes in your later years.

Dealing with bereavement

Ease the burden of losing a loved one with the assistance of one of our specially trained professionals. Our Probate team can deal with obtaining a grant of probate, distributing assets and if there is disagreement over an estate, our specialists are on hand to assist with Inheritance and Will disputes.

Helen was invaluable in helping me through the hardest time of my life. Napthens picked up my divorce halfway through (due to retirement of my other solicitor) and Helen guided me in negotiating a financial settlement. She walked me through the process and answered all my questions with empathy and checked my understanding. I felt treated as a person and Helen was professional and sensitive throughout Mrs C
