Who inherits what when you pass on?
Did you know that in the South East of England:
What is even more disturbing is that 70% of adults with children under 18 do not have a will in place.
Most people believe their partners would receive everything. This is not always the case. If you die without a will in place the government prioritises who gets your Estate and in what proportions. Furthermore if no one claims your estate then the government will take the lot.
This is even more relevant if you are living with someone but are not married or in a civil partnership even if you have been together for years.
A Last Will and Testament is the only way to guarantee your wishes
An LPA enables a trusted person to act on your behalf should you become incapable of doing so.
There are 2 types of LPA:
Losing capacity without an LPA can be costly. An application to the Court of Protection to appoint a deputy to manage your affairs can take months and can cost thousands of Pounds. Having an LPA today, prevents this.
In the last 2 years just 134,000 people put a Lasting power of Attorney in place. Thats less than 1% of the population according to a report on the BBCs One Show.
A Will activates on death. What happens if you fall ill beforehand and need help? In the last 5 years, over 1m homes have been lost in the UK, to pay for things like care prior to death depleting the inheritance for your beneficiaries. Lifetime Asset Trusts protect and keep that inheritance intact.
The average cost of a funeral in 2006 was £1,920, by 2016 is now £3,609. An increase of 88%. At this rate, the average cost of a funeral in 2026 could be more than £7,000. Why not secure a plan at today's prices?
