How We Gather Your Information

In addition to the information you provide to us directly, we may collect personal information in other ways such as from an anti-money laundering electronic search provider. Sometimes we collect information from someone else that you know, for example, if a member of your family has asked us to make a will or trust for them which names you as a beneficiary or to create a power of attorney with you acting as an attorney for them or if you are helping to fund their property purchase. For your safety and for legal reasons we collect personal information by using CCTV in our offices.

To keep your data secure and allow us to stay in contact with you, please let us know whenever your personal information changes. For example please let us know when you move house, change your name on marriage or divorce or get a new email address, so we can keep our records up to date.
