Hello.

No worries, I can help you with the will and the power of attorney, if necessary.

Can you please let me know how many assets your cousin wants to include in the will?

Thank you.

She has four bequests of five thousand pounds to be taken from the sale of her home, the remainder to be equally divided between two people.
Expert:  C.Cornel replied 7 months ago.

I understand. I will opt out for another lawyer, as I won't be able to provide a home visit in Waterbeck.

Thank you.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I am one of the two people to receive the remainder, another cousin to receive the other half

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I can help with this matter if you are still looking for assistance? Just out of curiosity, is there any reason. you are not simply approaching a local solicitor to undertake the will and PoA drafting?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I am visiting from Canada and do not know any lawyer, I used this site to find the nearest lawyer who could visit the home as my cousin is too sick to go out. I was given your name as the nearest person who would do this service. Was I given wrong information? I do not know who is closer to the home to do this.
Expert:  Ross Miller replied 7 months ago.

I could do this, however, the house is an hour and a half away from my office. That being said I will provide you a link for the Scottish Law Society. They have a "find a lawyer" function which would allow you to find a lawyer much closer to you. I would imagine you will get one in Gretna. I hope this helps. https://www.lawscot.org.uk/find-a-solicitor/
