Why should I make a Will?
Having a Will ensures your estate including property, money, and possessions are distributed and protected exactly as you want it.
Without a valid Will, the law decides what happens to your estate. This is called intestacy or dying intestate and may result in things being different from what you would like.
IN YOUR WILL YOU CAN CLEARLY EXPRESS YOUR WISHES REGARDING:
- Who you would like to administer your estate;
- Who should act as a legal guardian for your children;
- How you would like your funeral to be conducted;
- Whether you want to donate your organs or leave your body to science.
- Who you wish to receive the various parts of your estate, including your house, money, valuable and sentimental items.
Making a Will is not as expensive or complicated as people may think. Our team will talk you through the options available and ensure that you have a Will in place that gives you peace of mind when the time comes your family and estate are looked after exactly as you wanted it.
LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY
If you become unable to make decisions, due to ill health or an accident, someone else will need to make those decisions for you.
Officially appointing someone to make those decisions is called making a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). You can appoint one or more people you trust to act on your behalf should you lose mental capacity.
There are two different types of Lasting Power of Attorney: one deals with care and welfare, whilst the other is focussed on property and financial matters.
Losing a loved one is emotionally painful and never easy. We know the legal obligations and requirements that are needed to be carried out following the death of a loved one can also add another level of stress and overwhelm at an already difficult time.
Our Probate team is on hand to support you through this process, offering as little or as much help and guidance as you need. To speak to our Probate team or to schedule a free consultation to find out how we can help you, get in touch by phone or email.
