Will Writing

Our Will Writing service gives you sympathetic help in creating a will which reflects your final wishes.

We know it can be difficult thinking about death, but it is important to write a will to ensure that your wishes are reflected.

If you die without having created a will, your estate will be distributed in accordance with the rules of intestacy. This means that you could benefit members of your family instead of people of your choice, simply because you have not made a will.

If you have young children, it is important to make a will to appoint guardians to look after them in the event of your death. This is also important for parents who are divorced.

If you cohabit with a partner, and have not made a will, there is no guarantee that your partner will benefit from your estate.

Our advisor will set out your options and discuss your requirements, and can draft wills, mirror wills, and give you support in making difficult decisions in a sensitive manner.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

"Everyone should consider having an LPA," says family justice minister Caroline Dineage.

If you can't make decisions, through illness or an accident, having one allows you to choose someone you trust to make those decisions on your behalf.

An LPA allows you to choose one or more people to handle your property and financial affairs, and to make decisions about your health and welfare.

If you do not have an LPA in place and are diagnosed with an illness such as Alzheimer's, your relatives will need to apply to the Court of Protection to make payments on your behalf. Many families are unprepared for this daunting procedure in which your affairs become regulated by the Court.

To avoid this and protect yourself in the future, an LPA allows you to have control over who administers your affairs should you become ill.

We can offer full advice about applying for Financial & Property Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) and Health & Welfare Powers of Attorney.
