About Kenton Baker

We have received such helpful and practical advice re planning our future. This complicated procedure was explained in an easily understood way and did much to put our fears at bay. It is an area where we did want to bury our head in the sand as all the jargon we had read seemed so very complicated to understand. We are putting into place suggestions made by Kenton and have complete faith in his expert handling of this in the future.

- Liz Tate

Kenton is excellent in his approach and attention to detail in explaining wills and power of attorney. These are complicated subjects to most people but his method of helping us to understand and avoid the pitfalls was second to none. He is very trustworthy and knowledgeable on these subjects which was very important to us and very precise in handling the process and paperwork involved. He has helped us update our wills and establish appropriate powers of attorney for us and other members of my family and I would recommend him to anyone in dealing with these subjects.

- Charles Rhodes

Kenton did our LPA,s, he was extremely patient and tolerant of our endless questions and enquiries. The whole process was handled on a friendly and professional manner. Would happily use again.

Should Cohabiting Couples have Increased Rights?

Should Cohabiting Couples have Increased Rights?

The House of Lords are calling for increased rights for cohabiting adults, especially cohabiting siblings as the Cohabitation Rights Bill swept through the House of Lords for a second reading. The Cohabitation Rights Bill was originally drawn up in 2007 with certain amends being suggested in 2011. Its primary aim was to provide protections for persons who live or have lived together as a cohabitant couple. It also sought clarification on the law regarding the property of a deceased person who are survived by a cohabitant. Despite various readings and amendments suggested throughout parliament, there has been no action from the government on this issue. In 1996, less than 3 million people were living as cohabiting couples. In 2014, this figure had risen to 5.9 million. Even today, in 2019, the figure has exceeded 6.6 million couples.

Making your Will

Making your Will

We spend our lives working to provide for ourselves and our loved ones. You may have a house or flat (in the UK or overseas), shares, savings, and investments, as well as your personal possessions. All of these assets are your ‘estate’. Making a Will ensures that when you die, your estate is shared according to your wishes.
