It is a sad fact of life that there are some who seek to take advantage of elderly or vulnerable people. Financial abuse can take many forms. A family member may take money without knowledge or consent, or by exerting undue influence to induce “gifts” of money or property. A person entrusted with power of attorney may abuse that trust. Unscrupulous salesmen may force or bamboozle someone into entering into contracts for goods or services they do not want or need.
Our specialist lawyers at Bell & Buxton offer a full range of services aimed at minimising the risk of financial abuse, stopping it in its tracks where it is uncovered and undoing the damage as far as possible.

“Thank you Bell & Buxton for helping my daughter move into her new home. It was a ‘bit of a marathon’ for us and your team successfully helped us through what was an unusually difficult process.”
- Mike Peat
"David Williams was outstanding in his attention to detail, clarity and efficiency. I have never had such exemplary service in dealing with solicitors."
First impressions at reception were very friendly and helpful and very caring on leaving. The offer of coffee was most welcome. The understanding by Mr Sissons of the situation was to the point and any aspect that could cause unforeseen (by me) problems was soon spotted.
"Bell & Buxton have always been prompt in their assistance to clients.I rang up for some help & was pleased that Mr Neal gave me the help I required immediately."
"You made the sale of our house painless. You handled everything, every pitfall and problem with first rate efficiency. The whole process left us with no worries at all. A BIG thank you."
