Will Writing

From £99

Although the thought of someone close to us passing away can be something of a morbid thought, there is a lot of preparation that needs to be carried out for when each of us passes away. One of the most important documents we create in relation to our passing is a Will, and is important for a number of different reasons. We all have possessions that we would like to pass to future generations, and preparing a Will is the best way to ensure this happens to your specifications. Not having a Will prepared can bring a plethora of problems, as there is no sure-fire way of determining who should receive what possessions. With no Will in place, it is likely that the law will decide as to how your estate will be distributed.

Lasting Power of Attorney

From £125.00

This is a legal document that lets you (the ‘donor’) appoint one or more people (known as ‘attorneys’) to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf. This gives you more control over what happens to you if, for example, you have an accident or an illness and can’t make decisions at the time they need to be made (you ‘lack mental capacity’). It must be your decision and you must trust your attorney, as you’re giving them extensive powers to make decisions about you and your life. If there comes a time in the future when you don’t have the mental capacity to make a decision and you haven’t created a valid LPA it may be necessary for the Court of Protection to become involved.
