    Sarah Horton


    I am thrilled to have joined Brethertons as a Partner in the Wills, Trusts & Probate team.

    I qualified as a solicitor in 2008 and have specialised in Wills, Trusts, Probate, Powers of Attorney and estate administration since then. I assist customers in all of these areas, from the straightforward to the complex. I also qualified as a member of The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) in October 2014.

    As a solicitor in this department, my areas of practice include the following:-

    • Will drafting
    • Estate administration and distribution, including inheritance tax calculations
    • Intestacy administration
    • Trust creation, administration and distribution
    • Advice on all aspects of probate related UK taxation and reliefs
    • Lasting Power of Attorney advice, completion and registration
    • Court of Protection Deputy applications

    I really enjoy my job and take great pride in my role – I am a compassionate, patient, diligent person and really value being able to work closely with my customers, understand their unique circumstances and provide support in what can be difficult topics to deal with.

    Clients say that I “ask the right questions and propose clear unambiguous wording”, have “an immediate understanding”, deals with customers “empathetically and professionally” and provide “nothing but first-class service”.

    I was ranked as a Key Lawyer in The LEgal 500 2022.

    • Experience and Accreditations

    • Gained an LL.B (Hons) in 2004
    • Studied the Legal Practice Course at The College of Law in 2005
    • Qualified as a Solicitor in 2008
    • Became a full TEP member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) in 2014
    • Full Accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) in 2022.

    As a member of STEP, I adhere to the STEP Code for Will Preparation in England & Wales and the STEP Standard Provisions.

    When I am not at work, I enjoy time with my young children and husband, bike riding, swimming and exploring. If I am ever treated to a night off, I love going to live comedy!

  • What our clients say about Sarah...


    • We chose Brethertons because Sarah Horton had previously helped us with POA, We were more than happy again this time, Sarah has always been very helpful, got back to us quickly and always professional. Excellent service, would highly recommend.
    • Nothing but first class service from Sarah and all of the team. Will definitely using Brethertons again.Thank you all. You deserve 10 stars.
    • As always, a reliable, professional and friendly service, most recently with wills and LPA's by Sarah Horton.
    • Sarah Horton and her team dealt with Powers of Attorney for us both. Sarah made it very easy and seamless from start to finish. We would recommend Sarah and will use her again in the future should the need arise.
    • We engaged Sarah Horton to redraft our wills. She asked the right questions and proposed clear and unambiguous wording. We were able to accept her first draft, with no further amendments being required. In summary, very professional, with good grasp of detail.
    • My husband and I first used Brethertons to sell property we had in Manchester, the efficiency and service we received we exemplary. When my husband was dying they helped put his Will in order to simplify things for me. I subsequently sold our house to move closer to our daughter, and again the the service was excellent, even though the process took quite a while due to Covid, I was kept informed at every stage along the way. Once I had moved, it was time to update my Will and Powers of Attorney, which were dealt with in a very professional way, making sure all the parties involved were happy with the arrangements, so that once again everything would run smoothly. I would recommend Brethertons without any hesitation should I be asked. Thank you Holly Pearce and Sarah Horton.
