PROFESSIONAL WILL WRITING

What is a Will or Last Will and testament?

 

A last Will and testament is the legal document that sets out your family members, individuals and or charities who are to receive your property, assets and possessions once you pass away. These are usually referred to as the beneficiaries.

Furthermore, in the provision of your Will you can nominate executors and trustees to be responsible for the distribution of your property and assets to the intended beneficiaries.

 

None of us like paperwork

 

Many people think that making a Will is time consuming, complicated and expensive. This probably why many people put it off for another day or even forget. A valid will should be updated every 3 – 5 years as your circumstances can change.

 

We make it Easier  – We come and do it for you!

 

To make things easier one of our Will drafters will visit you at home and guide you through the process and take your Will instruction. Therefore, making it less stressful for you.

Once your will is drafted we will contact you to check all details are correct then we will make a second appointment to arrange the signing and witnessing of your Will.

Our Will writing services starts from £168.00 for a Standard Single Will

 

So what will I receive?

  • Original thermally bound Will
  • Copy of Will
  • plain English commentary
  • Free Letters of Wishes
  • VAT

 

Attestation (second visit to oversee the the signing and witnessing of the will) £30.00

 

Standard Double/Mirror Wills £242.00

 

We offer a peace of mind service at £44.00 per year, this includes the storage of you original will and yearly updates, should your circumstances change.

 

 

What happens if I die without writing my Will?

 

Many people are unaware of what happens if you die without writing a Will. It is called intestate and rules of intestacy will apply. This means that your estate will be divided up according to the law and only certain people will inherit under these rules. This could cause rifts in families and even financial hardship.

We all need a valid will to protect our beneficiaries inheritance

TRUSTS

What is a trust?

 

A trust is a formal transfer of assets (ie property, land, shares or just cash) to a small number of people (usually two or three)  with instructions that they hold the assets for the benefit of others.

 

Trusts overview

 

A trust is a way of managing assets (property, money, investments, land or buildings) for people. There are many types of trusts

 

The main types of trust are:

 

  • Absolute/bare trusts
  • interest in possession trusts
  • discretionary trusts
  • accumulation trusts
  • mixed trusts
  • settlor-interested trusts
  • non-resident trusts

 

Trusts involve:

 

  • the ‘settlor’ – the person who puts assets into a trust
  • the ‘trustee’ – the person who manages the trust
  • the ‘beneficiary’ – the person who benefits from the trust

 

Why set up a Trust?

 

Trusts can be set up for a number of reasons:

 

  • to control and protect family assets
  • when someone’s too young to handle their affairs
  • when someone can’t handle their affairs because they’re incapacitated
  • to pass on assets while you’re still alive
  • to pass on assets when you die (a ‘will trust’)
  • under the rules of inheritance if someone dies without a will (in England and Wales)

Trusts may provide benefits in estate planning, asset protection, and taxes.

LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY

Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document. It allows you to appoint someone that you trust as an “Attorney” to make decisions on your behalf, when you no longer wish to or when you lack the mental capacity to do so. A Lasting Power of Attorney can help you plan how your health, well being and financial affairs will be looked after.

 

Why you need them in place

 

Your bank accounts can be frozen if you lose mental capacity. Without a LPA it can take months to get the same powers from the Court of Protection, which can also be costly.

The decisions you want to be made, will be made on your behalf by the people you want to make them.

Your Attorney(s) must follow the Code of Practice of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and act in your best interests.

Just because you may be married or in a civil partnership, that your spouse/partner can automatically make decisions for you, should you lose mental capacity as they won’t have the authority to do so.

 

There are two types of power of attorney:

 

Health and Welfare

 

Health and Welfare decisions and can only be used once you have lost mental capacity. Your attorney can generally make decisions about things such as:

  • where you should live
  • your medical care
  • what you should eat
  • who you should have contact with
  • what kind of social activities you should take part in.

Furthermore, you can also give special permission for your attorney to make decisions about life-saving treatment.

 

Property & Financial Affairs

 

This can be used while you still have mental capacity or you can state that you only want it to come into force if you lose capacity.

LPA Property and Financial Affairs covers things such as:

  • purchasing and selling of property
  • paying mortgages
  • Banking/investing money
  • paying bills
  • repairs to property

You can set out restrictions on the types of decisions your attorney can make, or let them make all decisions on your behalf.

Your attorney must keep separate accounts and make sure their accounts and monies are kept separate from yours.

You can ask for regular statements of how much they have spent and how much money you have. This will provide you an extra layer of protection. The details can be sent to your solicitor or a family member if you lose capacity.

Who would you want to make decisions for you, when you no longer can
