At Allingham & Co, we’re here for you at the most important stages of your life. From buying your first property to discussing your Will, we’re here by your side with friendly, compassionate and reliable legal support.

Our team of solicitors, based in our Colinton and Buckstone offices, work with clients in Edinburgh and beyond to support them through stages of life that can feel overwhelming.

Our conveyancing team help you to buy or sell property, while our Private Client team ease the burden of making Wills and Living Wills (Advance Directives), establishing Powers of Attorney and helping with Executries after a bereavement.

Wills, Powers of Attorney and Executries

Our solicitors can help you plan for your future, with Wills and Powers of Attorney and be by your side while you cope with bereavement, supporting you with Executries and managing estates.


Nearly 60% of all Scottish adults are living without a Will. Many mistakenly believe their loved ones will automatically inherit their estate after their death, while others may not think they’re wealthy or old enough to need a Will. Instead of leaving things to chance, we can help you write a Will that ensures your wishes are followed.

Powers of Attorney

A Power of Attorney allows someone else to help you look after your affairs if you need them. Our experienced solicitors can help you with appointing someone to act as your Attorney. With compassion, knowledge and efficiency, we’ll guide you through the legal process of setting up a Power of Attorney.

Living Wills

We all hope we’ll always be in a position to make medical decisions for ourselves, but life is unpredictable – and if we do find ourselves incapacitated or terminally ill and unable to communicate our wishes, a Living Will (or Advance Directive) is a powerful guide for those involved in your end of life care.

With bereavement comes paperwork, bills, legal documentation and many administrative tasks to handle. Our solicitors can help to handle all aspects of an estate to ease the burden on you and settle affairs with compassion and efficiency.
