What is it?
Planning for your financial future now is a great idea and could include things like Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Care Fees or Inheritance Tax Planning.
You tell us all the ways you’d like to protect your assets and we’ll structure your Will so your final wishes have the legal status to be carried out in the way you want. It includes things like:
- Areas that might be at risk
- Your Will
- Any trusts you have or want
- Lasting Power of Attorney
- Care fees and Inheritance Tax planning
- The legal documents you’ll need and how we can draft them for you
- A Protection Survey report to take away and digest before making any final decisions
Widely held assumptions
Unfortunately, many believe their spouse will be able to look after their financial and care decisions if they become incapacitated. However, this isn’t the case, as without Lasting Power of Attorney, when someone loses capacity there can be severe implications, as assets will be frozen and inaccessible.
Lasting Power of Attorney
It’s important to consider who you’d like to nominate to look after your affairs when you’re not able to. This could include anything from property and finances to health and welfare, and should be given to someone you trust.
Care fees planning
At some point in the future you may need care in your own home for assisted independence or even the use of a care home. With careful planning you can prepare for these potential costs.
Inheritance tax and legacy planning
As with Lasting Power of Attorney, assumptions in this area can leave those you care about without the legacy you intended for them. Resolving this is simple, we’ll help you plan so your wishes are actually carried out.Take me to Step 4: Update & Improve >
