Protecting Your Assets for Future Generations
Much of your life will have been spent accumulating assets and there is a natural desire to provide meaningful, identifiable inheritances for future generations. The arrangement of simple, inexpensive, legal applications can easily ensure your assets are kept safe during your lifetime and this is where our expertise comes to the fore.
Typical Examples are shown here:
Arranging Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs)
Losing mental capacity as a result of accidents or illness is an ever-increasing problem, as is dementia. It is therefore important to arrange LPAs while you are still mentally capable and before you need it.
Establishing LPAs for Property and Financial Affairs together with LPAs for Health and Welfare means you give someone you trust the legal authority to make decisions on your behalf if you become unable to do so.
LPAs are legal documents that can be easily arranged in the comfort of your own home.
LPAs can ONLY be arranged whilst you have Mental Capacity!
Making a Will
Making a Will means you appoint Executors to manage your Estate on the event of your death. They will pay any debts, distribute your assets to your chosen beneficiaries and carry out your wishes.
N.B. Whilst married couples and those in a civil partnership can inherit certain assets from a deceased spouse, co-habiting partners have no such rights and a valid Will is essential!
Having a valid Will helps settle your Estate in a timely and tax-efficient manner.
Wills can ONLY be arranged whilst you have Mental Capacity!
Planning and Paying for Your Funeral in Advance
Many people today arrange and pay for their funerals in advance to provide certainty for their loved ones whilst removing unnecessary mental and financial stress at the very difficult time.
A funeral plan is purchased with a lump sum or instalment plan.
A Funeral Director agrees to carry out the funeral, whenever required, without any further payments being required for their services.
Personal wishes regarding the format of the funeral are recorded.
A formal contract is sent to the client or their personal representatives.
Funeral Plans can be bought for others e.g Parents or Relations
