Location / Castle Cary

I draft wills to suit all circumstances and can advise you on the allowances and exemptions available for lifetime inheritance tax planning.

I also take instructions for both the property and financial and health and welfare lasting powers of attorney. I can provide the capacity certification and register your documents.

I register enduring powers of attorney and can make applications for someone to act as a deputy with the Court of Protection.

I have drafted a variety of declarations of trust dealing with the co-ownership of a property.

I can administer all types of estates, from intestate estates to high net worth estates and have experience in successfully applying for agricultural property and business property relief.

I joined Battens' Private Client Team in November 2002 after reading English at Southampton University.  I started my training to become a Chartered Legal Executive in 2003 and after two career breaks to have my children, I am now a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Legal Executives.  Meanwhile, I have also attained the foundation certificate for STEP (Society for Trust and Estate Practitioners) and completed the STEP Will Practitioners Course.  I enjoy building upon my legal knowledge and experience which enables me to deal with a wide range of matters for a diverse client base.

When not at work, I love to try out new recipes and enjoy life in the country with family and friends.

"Exceptional service from the team! Sally was extremely confident and professional as well as friendly, approachable and patient. Everything was clear and precise with the communication. Thank you to Sally and Ben for making our Will writing experience an easy one." 


"Excellent perseverance shown by Sally Manning dealing with a range of investments held by my late father in different places. Very pleased with how she dealt with the Estate."
