Lasting Power of Attorney

An LPA is a legal document allowing a person (or persons) chosen by you to act for you on your behalf when you do not have the physical or mental capacity to do so yourself. The number of people developing dementia is increasing and therefore it is important to have LPAs in place. Leaflet - LPA Fact Sheet Having no LPA(s) in place would mean your family will have to apply to the Court of Protection to be able to manage your affairs which could be a very lengthy, complex and expensive procedure.

Wills

You are never too old (or young) to make a Will. Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes. By making a Will, you will have full control of how your assets will be distributed after your death. Leaving no Will (dying ‘Intestate’) will leave the Intestacy Laws to dictate how your estate will be distributed which may not be in accordance with your wishes. Intestacy may also leave your family to deal with legal complications that may arise together with increased costs and delays. Research shows 53% of our adult population have not made a Will. Almost 70% of cohabiting couples have no Will. Leaflet - Distribution of Assets in IntestacyThis means that on death, the surviving partner would have no automatic right to inherit.

Making a Will is a straightforward procedure. We will help you to get your thoughts and wishes organised and talk you through the process. You may either see us at our office or we can see you in the comfort of your own home if you are unable to come to us.Will Making Questionnaire Please click on the icon to complete the Will questionnaire if you want us to help you put a Will in place.
