Our Services

Whether you have recently decided to sell your home or already have your property on the market with a different agent, we can provide you with the best option to get your property sold.

Whether dealing with a sale or purchase Doughtys has the knowledge and expertise to give you the best possible advice.

Although most of us don’t like to think about it, it is never too soon to set out what you want to happen to your estate in the event of your death. Making a will is the best way to ensure that your family and your assets are protected in the long term.

It is often a distressing time dealing with the estate of a loved one. At Doughtys we offer professional advice and we can deal with the formalities of winding up an estate in a compassionate and sympathetic manner.

When you are fit and healthy it is difficult to imagine the day that you would not be able to make decisions about your financial affairs or personal welfare. But that day may come and making a Powers of Attorney is an important part of planning for your future.

Unfortunately an Adult can lose the ability to make decisions perhaps as a result of an accident or medical condition. It then falls to family and friends to manage their affairs and make financial and welfare decisions on their behalf.
