  2. Estate Planning: this is an essential part of protecting your savings and property against unexpected issues, such has ill-health, bankruptcy, divorce, etc. Through estate planning, you can make sure your assets are not taken away from you to pay for things like long-term care, by placing the asset in a trust for your loved ones.

  4. Probate & Trustee Services: you are able to place your assets into trusts and then nominate people who can run it on your behalf, they are called trustees. We provide additional help and support for anyone you name as a trustee, so that the probate legal process can run much more smoothly for your surviving relatives.

This is why it is a good idea to appoint a lasting power or attorney.

We store it for you in a safe and secure location, until the time comes for it to be released to your family.

Last Will and Testament

A last will or testament is a legally binding document. It details how the testator (the person making the will) would like their property to be distributed in the event of their death. The document lists the beneficiaries and what their inheritance is, as well as who is responsible for managing the property and any other stipulations or requests that the beneficiary must agree to in order to claim their inheritance.

Why it is important to make a will

Even if you don’t think you have much in the way of possessions and money, it is still incredibly important that you make a will.

Why? Because:

• If you die and you do not have a will, standard rules are applied and it is these rules that dictate how your money, property or possessions will be allocated and to who. This will not take into account your personal wishes and might in fact be not the way you wanted your possessions to be allocated.
• If you do not have a will but you do have a partner you are not married to or in a civil partnership with, they will not be legally entitled to inherit from you (and vice versa). If one of you were to pass away, this could cause financial problems for the other.
• Without a will, your wishes regarding who should raise your children, how and where, in the event of both you and your partner dying, will go un-noted. The decisions will be made for you, while they may be in the best interests of your child, it may not have been what you would have chosen. The decision made here will not take into account things like family disputes, or your wishes.
Essentially, a will gives you complete control over what happens to your belongings in the event of your death. Other benefits include a possible reduction in inheritance tax if a will is made and advice is given in advance.

Why it is important to keep your last will and testament up-to-date

Some people believe that once they have written their last will and testament, that’s the end of it, but it isn’t. as your circumstances change throughout life you will need to constantly amend and update your will to reflect your current wishes. For example, if you were to get married or enter into a civil partnership, any will you made previous to that will now be invalid. Another good example is if you left some of your possessions to your partner in your will, but you have since separated and they are now an ex-partner, you’ll want to remove them from your will.

If you don’t have a will, or you have one that is out-of-date, contact us to see how we can help you to secure a safe future for your loved ones.
