Four reasons why you need a Will

Don’t delay - It’s easy to make a will – and it will save your family unnecessary distress at an already difficult time.

  1. A will makes it much easier for your family or friends to sort everything out when you die – without a will the process can be more time consuming and stressful.

  2. If you don’t write a will, everything you own will be shared out in a standard way defined by the law, which isn’t always the way you might want.

  3. A will can help reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax that might be payable on the value of the property and money you leave behind.

  4. Writing a will is especially important if you have children or other family who depend on you financially, or if you want to leave something to people outside your immediate family.

What is Probate?

 

Probate is the process of dealing with the estate of someone who has died, which generally means clearing their debts and distributing their assets in accordance with their will or the intestacy rules.

Why you should make a Lasting Power of Attorney

 

IA lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a way of giving someone you trust, your attorney, the legal authority to make decisions on your behalf if you lose the mental capacity to do so in the future, or if you no longer want to make decisions for yourself..
