Last Will and Testament

  • Single or Mirror Wills
  • Enhanced Wills - Nil Rate Band Trusts, Discretionary Will Trusts, Protective Will Property Trusts
  • Peace of mind
  • Regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority

Who inherits what when you pass on?

Did you know that in the South East of England:

  • 90% of adults 18-35 do not have a Lasting will or Testament
  • 66% of adults 36-54 do not have a Lasting will or Testament
  • 34% of adults 54+ do not have a Lasting will or Testament

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

Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)

An LPA enables a trusted person to act on your behalf should you become incapable of doing so.

There are 2 types of LPA:

  • "Property and Financial Affairs" gives your Attorney (the trusted person) authority to deal with your property, bills, accounts and investments.
  • "Health and Welfare" covers health and care including care home facilities if required if you become incapacitated.

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.

Asset Trusts

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.

  • Ring fence your assets (home, finances, shares)
  • Income can be drawn from the trust if required
  • You retain full control of the assets until you die
  • Assets in the trust are secured if you lose capacity
  • The trust lasts up to 125 years
  • Provide against Sideways Disinheritance
  • Create provision for long term care

Don't risk your home and wealth any longer. Start protecting them today.
