For complete peace of mind
Did you know that, with just three pre-prepared and carefully considered documents, you can organise your affairs now, so that your family avoids delay, stress and huge expense later on?
David’s family learned the importance of professionally preparing a Will when they found the Will to be invalid.
Our Peace of Mind Package is designed to help you to prepare your three vital documents that will stand up to scrutiny.
The First Document – a Valid Will
Our specialists will draft your Will correctly, and to your specific circumstances, to ensure that your wishes are carried out after you have died. In doing this, you can also save inheritance tax for your estate and protect your family from the expense and uncertainty that comes with a situation where someone has died intestate (without a Will).
The Second Document – Lasting Power of Attorney (Financial)
Our Lasting Power of Attorney specialists will help you to put an LPA in place for property and financial affairs. So, should you lose mental capacity due to illness or injury, your trusted “Attorney” will have the power to manage these affairs for you.
Without an LPA in place, your loved ones would need to apply to the Court of Protection for an Order to appoint a Deputy – a significantly costly and time-consuming process. It would ultimately be the Court who decides who is appointed and not you.
The Third Document – Lasting Power of Attorney (Health and Welfare)
Our Lasting Power of Attorney specialists will also help you to appoint someone to make decisions about your health, treatment and wellbeing, should you lose mental capacity.
This can include decisions around medical treatment and residential care.
Without an LPA in place for your health and welfare, then often the Local Authority (Social Services) will step in and make decisions on your behalf. If you are in hospital, the doctors will make the decisions on how to treat you and whether this treatment is in your best interests.
