Lee Kirby (FCILEx) – Great Testimonial 25.01.2018

Lee Kirby

Re: Lee Kirby – Wills, Probate & Later Life Planning

Dear Lee

As we were the sole Executors of our late friend’s Will, and we required professional assistance to administer the Estate. We were immensely grateful to you for agreeing to undertake the large amount of work involved, particularly as we live 100 miles away.

You dealt with all the complexities of the Will and the subsequent sale of the property with great professionalism, thoroughness, patience and unfailing good humour.

You kept us fully informed of developments and we were especially impressed by the many occasions on which you called us back quickly after we had left voicemail messages for you.

We would have really struggled without your expertise and like you to know how much we appreciate everything you’ve done for us.

Yours sincerely,

Tom & Val Anderson

Dooring – British Cycling launches awareness campaign

Dooring is a traffic collision in which a cyclist is struck by a vehicle door. The width of the door can vary depending on the model of car or vehicle.

‘The danger posed by car drivers and their passengers opening vehicle doors into the path of cyclists on Britain’s road needs to be addressed’ says cycling group Cycling UK.

Cycling UK – Reaction to dooring

In a response to the number of incidents the group has written a letter to the transport minister, Jesse Norman MP. They are arguing that there is need for greater awareness of the dangers of ‘car-dooring’. They are also calling for measures to prevent it happening.

Cycling UK says that figures provided to them by the Department for Transport show that between 2011 and 2015:

  • 2009 cyclists were injured (five fatally)

in dooring incidents that were reported to the police. The figures may not truly represent the number of incidents, as not all of them are reported.

The Dutch Reach is considered to be a potential solution to this problem. In the UK this would mean opening the drivers door with your left hand rather than your right.

Heating back on…

Well the joys of owning a new building is that sometimes things stop working. In the depths of Winter one of the last things you want to go without is the heating. Unfortunately, due to a leaking radiator our central heating stopped over the weekend.

Trains, Planes & Automobiles - Cold

Thankfully, K R Martin Ltd of Keighley came to our rescue and the radiators are now warming up.

Apologies to anyone coming in to see us today. It may take a while for the building to warm up again but hopefully things will get back to normal by tomorrow.

Countdown to moving to our new offices

WTW new address slider

It’s not long to go and we will be saying a fond farewell to 22-22 Devonshire Street, which has been our home for the last few years.

The contractors are now in their final week. The flooring has started to go down. In the mediation suite the large light fittings are being put up. It will look fantastic!

Moving date…

The move will start on Friday 15 December and we hope to be ‘open’ on the following Monday. As with any move, things may be a little chaotic for the first few days as we all settle in.

We will try our best to minimise any impact to our service during this period.  WTW apologise in advance for any delays or issues. Hopefully though we will be able to avoid any major problems.

Please note: All email addresses and telephone numbers will remain the same.

Divorces – the real impact

There are always divorces in the headlines. The celebrities and the mega rich airing there private lives in the press. Each day we seem to see a media led battle over their financial fortunes and personal misfortunes.

In the real world

What about the rest of us just fighting to keep our sanity and trying to save our relationship or keep the family together. What if, despite our best efforts, we can’t keep things together? We really need to speak to someone who will:

  • take the time to consider the issues
  • provide an easy to understand assessment of the legal situation
  • avoid blinding you with ‘legaleze’ and jargon.
