Wills/LPAss

Why make a will?

A will is a legal declaration of how you wish your property, money and possessions to be dealt with after your death. It is the best way to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes and not allocated according to the intestacy laws. Without a will the very old-fashioned laws of intestacy would determine who inherits your estate. This means there could be no provision for unmarried partners, stepchildren or guardians for your children and even if you are married your spouse may not inherit a full share of your assets. 

Why make a Lasting Power of Attorney?

Of course we do not like to think about it, but in life we do not know what is around the corner. Should you find yourself in a position where you cannot conduct your own affairs, perhaps due to illness or incapacitation, if an LPA has been drawn up it will grant appointed individuals the power to take responsibility for your affairs. They will make decisions on your behalf and manage areas such as your finances and property or your personal health and welfare.

There are two types of LPA available - a 'financial LPA' and a 'welfare LPA'. Please click here for further details on LPAs.
