PROTECT THE ONES YOU LOVE

Making a Will enables you to plan exactly what will happen to your estate after your death. This ensures that those you would like to benefit actually do so in accordance with your wishes. Very importantly you are able to appoint a guardian for your children under 18 yrs old as without a Will the children will become wards of Court which means anyone can step forward to apply for permanent guardianship.
Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)
A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document which gives someone you appoint the authority to look after your financial and health matters if you lose mental capacity. If you lose capacity and don’t have an LPA in place, your family would have to apply to the Court of Protection to have a deputy appointed. This process is very costly often running into thousands of pounds and can take years to complete.
Asset Protection Trust (APT)
An Asset Protection Trust is created during your lifetime and it protects any asset you place in it such as a house, bank account etc. It will also reduce probate costs, it provides for beneficiaries who require assistance and protects the assets from passing to a future spouse or partner before or after your death.
Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. If you have not made a valid Will, your property will pass according to the Law of Intestacy. This may not be what you would have wished. In any event it is likely to take longer to finalise than if you had made a Will. During this time your beneficiaries may not be able to draw any money from your estate. It can lead to arguments and distress for your relatives.
