about care fee planning
The strategy will be different for each family, due to their unique circumstances and views on life. Nonetheless, the best advice is to plan early and have the right legal advice.

With so much uncertainty surrounding these later life issues, it’s important to have the right specialist advice, whether it’s to help navigate the complex and sometimes daunting issues of care costs and choosing a care home or understanding the legal issues around Wills, Trusts and Lasting Powers of Attorney.
If you need to enter care without any care fee planning and have insufficient funds to pay for your own care then, it could be the local authority who chooses your placement which may not be your preferred option.
I engaged the services of Goughs Solicitors in Trowbridge, in particular Ailie Peacock, to act on my behalf for the sale of my house. Ailie was always clear with her advice, acted in a timely manor and answered any questions I had almost immediately. She was very proactive in dealing with the other parties involved in a slightly convoluted chain.
Ailie also managed a very late request from our buyers with calm efficiency and the utmost professionalism. The end result was a smooth sale and completion, with remarkably little stress on our part. I would not hesitate from using them again.
Clear concise advice
Quick response to e-mails or phone calls. Will certainly use again in the near future. Clear concise advice patiently given!

Excellent service as usual.
Superb once again.
Superb once again. Goughs provides outstanding service... professional in getting the job done and conducted with grace and care. Thank you Goughs!
The solicitor I dealt with at Goughs, Rhianna Cole, was an absolute star, I cannot fault her in any way at all. She made everything in the situation I was in so easy to understand, and she guided me through an extremely stressful time, with extreme professionalism, yet a very personal and sensitive touch. Can't big them up enough.
Made first-time buying a (relatively) simple process!
Sophie was very attentive and responsive and understood the need to act quickly in regard to our purchase process. She was diligent with the paperwork and was very easy to talk to and clear at explaining what was required in terms of action from our side and from the seller.

All were welcoming and pleasant and dealt with my queries instantly. Nadine Cook who handled the conveyancing was absolutely outstanding in her pursuit of excellence. I commend her as one of the best and she has my everlasting thanks

Very glad we went with Goughs
Sarah was very thorough and kept in touch with us all the way through the process. Very glad we went with Goughs and hopefully Sarah will be assisting my parents with their property regarding Land Registry
Nadine was fantastic
Nadine was fantastic, by far the best conveyancing process we’ve ever experienced, would recommend her to anyone. She was professional and communicative at all times, thank you
Very happy with the service provided.
Nadine said at the beginning that she was proactive, easy to say, but she proved to be so. She dealt with all matters efficiently by e-mail and e-letter. I also had two face to face meetings and she took the time to explain things clearly which is important. Very happy with the service provided.
