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.
