  •     You get divorced
  •     Confidential and No Obligation Service
  •     Complex situations welcomed

Will Writing

An unchangeable fact of life is that at some point we will pass away. Whilst this will be a very difficult time for your loved ones, it can also cause extra stress as they try to finalise your estate.

At this point you won’t have control over what happens to what you are leaving behind so it needs to be put in place in advance. As we don’t know when we will die, the sooner your will is written, the better.

If you die without a will in place, it can lead to years of organising, negotiation and enquiry for your loved ones. In some cases due to bank restrictions even normal bills will go unpaid which obviously causes extra pressure and strain at a time that is no doubt already very difficult.

Although planning for what happens when you die can be very difficult and upsetting, once done it will likely leave a feeling of security that you have things in place to protect those you love and care for.

Why Do I Need A Will?

If you don’t have a will when you die, your money, property and possessions will be shared out according to the law instead of your wishes. This can mean they pass to someone you hadn’t intended.

If you aren’t married and don’t have a Will, your partner, regardless of how long you have been together or if you have children, will not inherit anything.

Do you need to change your Will?

It’s a good idea to review your Will every now and then to make sure it still says what you want it to say.

You should definitely review your Will if:

Worryingly, every year the number of people in the UK that do not have a Will goes up and up. Government figures indicate that almost 30 million adults in the UK have not made a Will… are you one of them?

Do I need a Trust?

If you are looking to leave an inheritance to your loved ones when you die, first and foremost you will need an up-to-date will.

However, sometimes even the best Will alone is not enough to ensure that the correct inheritance goes to the correct person/people and it maybe necessary to set up a trust.

Nobody hopes for the worst… but you can prepare for it.

What is a Trust?

A trust is a legal arrangement whereby your ‘trustee’ looks after assets for the intended ‘beneficiary’ for a period of time devised by you, typically until the beneficiary is deemed responsible enough to manage the asset which maybe when reaching a certain age. A trust can be for money or property being held for a set time period or indefinitely to provide an income or somewhere to live.

By placing assets into a trust also ensures that it actually goes where it is intended and when set up correctly can help reduce inheritance tax

What is Lasting Power of Attorney?

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that gives your chosen representative (your partner, spouse or close friend for example) the power to make important decisions on your behalf.

If in the future you are unable to manage your own affairs, the people you have appointed can manage your financial life on your behalf. This can save a great deal of money and distress, and will ensure that, as a vulnerable person, your affairs will be handled correctly and quickly.

Nobody hopes for the worst… but you can prepare for it.

What Does an LPA Do?

An ‘LPA’ is a powerful tool that enables you to give your partner, children, sibling or close friend the power to ‘be you’ in the eyes of the law.

If you consider a Will as your wishes in death, the ‘LPA’ handles your wishes while you are still alive, but unable to make decisions for yourself.

There are many reasons why this might be the case, such as dementia, physical disability, an accident that leaves you incapacitated or even just a broken leg that stops you being able to go to the local bank!

How does it work?

An ‘LPA’ is a document signed by you, your attorney and witnesses. Once correctly signed, the document is ready to be registered with the ‘Office of the Public Guardian’, the government department who administer them.

The ‘LPA’ is 2 separate documents; one that deals with ‘Health & Welfare’ and the other that handles ‘Property & Financial Affairs’.
