A Will is a written declaration by you as to how you want your assets/property to be distributed after you pass. Having a Will is extremely important to give you and your family peace of mind that they will be looked after once you’ve gone.
For a fixed fee our experienced Wills and Estates Lawyers can draft a valid Will giving you that peace of mind.
We cannot stress the importance of having a valid Will. Should you die without a Will, you die intestate. Your family will not be able to apply for a grant of probate, but instead will have to apply to the Court for letters of Administration.Whilst applying for a grant of probate can be a simple process, applying for letters of Administration is much more complex and can have an end result that you may not have wished for.
Enduring Power of Attorney
An Enduring Power of Attorney is a document whereby you appoint a person ‘the Attorney’ to act in your place, in making and carrying out financial and property decisions. The power can come into effect at a time chosen by you, such as immediately, or if a doctor states you are no longer able to manage your own affairs.
Enduring Power of Guardianship.
The Enduring Power of Attorney does not provide for health and medical decisions. In order to cover this, you will need to make an Enduring Power of Guardianship. A Guardian will make decisions in relation to medical treatment as well as other health and lifestyle decisions if you lack capacity to make those decisions yourself.
