What We do

#1

Will Writing

Wills are integral in controlling the future of your assets and who they are left to. They allow you to protect your property, appoint your children’s guardians and ensure your loved ones, friends and charities all receive part of your wealth. Without one, it falls to the laws of intestacy to dictate where your assets are left.
#2

Lasting Powers Of Attorney

This legal document allows an individual to appoint a trusted person to handle their financial affairs, health and welfare. It defines what decisions you want to be made on your behalf – and how. LPAs are the piece to complete the process of securing your assets in the future.
#3

Property Protection

Trusts can be set up for singles or couples – protecting the house for the benefit of your family for generations potentially. For couples, an invisible line is drawn and you would each own fifty percent of the property. Single home owners can specify Trustees whose names are additionally used to register the property.

What if I die without making a Will? – Rules of Intestacy

If you die without a Will, then the government will decide who will inherit your estate in accordance with the Rules of Intestacy. These were drawn up in the 1920s, and despite major revisions in 2014, may not accord with your wishes. Depending upon circumstances and the size of your estate, your spouse may end up sharing your assets with your children.

Married partners or civil partners inherit under the rules of intestacy only if they are married or in a civil partnership at the time of death. So, if you are divorced or if your civil partnership has been legally ended, you can’t inherit under the rules of intestacy. The full laws of Intestacy depend on which part of the UK you live in and can be found on the government website here.
