Declutter Ever noticed how all the best looking home photoshoots have very little in them? There's a reason for this minimalistic approach: it lessens distraction. Keeping rooms clear of clutter will allow your viewers to concentrate on the space rather than its. In these times of hype and uncertainty, it goes a long way to have a company that is consistent and meticulous when dealing with important matters.

The service we received from Blair Cadell was first class. The staff were very approachable and professional at all times. I felt that I obtained a quality service that was clearly explained in advance.

They can also be used for funeral instructions and to appoint a guardian (for example, someone to look after young children). People who aren't relatives have no right to inherit (though a cohabitant might if they raise court proceedings and meet certain criteria). The courts will decide who to appoint as executor and require an insurance policy to be put in place to guard against wrongful actions by them.

It's the only way of ensuring your affairs are dealt with by someone you trust if-for whatever reason- you're unable to look after them yourself. Without a Power of Attorney, no one will have that authority unless they're given it by a court. This means your spouse, civil partner or cohabiter may have no legal authority to help you when you most need it.

Asset protection can be intimidating and confusing to navigate- not to mention a legal minefield. Asset protection can help protect your home from tax liabilities and any future claims on it. It's important to have a good understanding of how asset protection and trusts work, and to seek professional legal advice specific to your situation, before you make any decisions.

However, a power of attorney can only be granted by an adult who has the full mental capacity to do so. If someone needs help with their affairs but cannot grant power of attorney, an application can be made to the courts to appoint a guardian. A guardian is someone who can look after the adult's financial, business, personal and medical affairs. Once granted, the application must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian, which is part of the Scottish Courts and Tribunal Service.

The pair opened their shop last year and their venture is proving that entrepreneurship is a challenging but ultimately rewarding choice in an ailing job market. It all started from there.' Four months after their initial talks they were up and running but not without a few challenges along the way.
