Plan, protect and pass down

Will Writing

Making a Will is the only way to make sure that your assets are passed on in accordance with your wishes. The people who deal with your estate are chosen by you which helps to ease the burden on your family at such a difficult time.

If you die without a Will, your assets will be distributed in accordance with the Rules of Intestacy which may well produce a very different result to what you wanted.

Lasting Power of Attorney

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document which empowers people you trust to make decisions on your behalf if you were no longer able, or willing, to do so yourself. There are two types of LPA, one which covers your property and finances and the other which covers your health and welfare.

If you were to lose capacity someone will need to make decisions for you. Without an LPA in place, your loved ones will have to apply to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order which could take several months and can be very costly, adding to the stress and upset caused by your ill health.

By having an LPA, these potential complications can be avoided.
