Planning for the future
Whether you are thinking about your own future well-being or about protecting your family assets and loved ones after you’ve gone, it makes sense to plan ahead and leaves you safe in the knowledge that your family need not worry should the worst happen.
An up to date Will ensures your estate (your property, money and possessions) will pass to the right people to while a Lasting Power of Attorney will make sure that people you trust can legally make decisions on your behalf about your finances, health and welfare.
We can also help you to protect any wealth you have accumulated via the use of Inheritance Tax planning and Trusts, helping you to look after your loved ones and plan for any long term care while ensuring there is a balance between tax efficiency and living your life in the way you want to.
Dealing with the death of a loved one
If you’re dealing with the loss of a loved one, we can support you through a difficult time by helping you to deal with the administration of the estate.
Unfortunately, a death can sometimes cause tension within the family. Disputes can arise if a family member has been left out of a Will when they feel that they should have been provided for. There can also be questions about the validity of a Will if there is a feeling that the Will has does not meet certain legal conditions.
