The country may be on lockdown. But we are not.
Our established key worker wills team are still here to help.
Whilst there are many reasons people will often delay putting their affairs in order the importance of making it a priority cannot be overstated.
Our will writing team are still able to take new instructions and taking all possible steps to ensure that we continue to offer a comprehensive service.
If you are ‘self isolating’ your instructions can be dealt with by telephone and the remainder of the formalities dealt with by post.
We will be able to advise you about the most appropriate wills for you which may include:
- protecting assets as much as possible (including inheritance tax and the potential for care fees);
- preventing any claim against your estate; and
- making arrangements for any dependent children by both appointing guardians and safeguarding monies for their future benefit.
Lasting powers of attorney
When considering estate planning it is also wise to consider what steps could be taken in the event you suddenly find yourself in a position where you are unable to manage your own affairs. Whether that be as a result of physical or mental illness (including dementia).
Normally this would be by appointing a person you trust to act as your attorney. Meaning they will be able to manage your affairs should you become unable to.
We are here and ready to help if you wish to discuss Lasting Powers of Attorney to make sure that if the time comes where you need such help, then everything is already in place. The alternatives to Lasting Powers of Attorney can be costly and very slow therefore, granting a Lasting Power of Attorney would avoid the potential for those problems.
As with will instructions, your Lasting Power of Attorney instructions can be dealt with by telephone and the remainder of the formalities dealt with by post.
