The whole process from start to finish is person centred putting the client’s needs first and foremost.
There are many reasons for making a Will you may wish to make specific bequests, appoint guardians for your children, make charitable donations, minimise Inheritance Tax or set up a family Trust for your loved ones. It can also protect your assets from being used to pay for long term care costs.
Whatever your concern, making a Will can safeguard the future of those you care most about. It ensures that you continue to provide for your family even after you have gone… it might also prevent you from paying unnecessary Inheritance Taxes to the government.
Lasting Power of Attorney is an important legal document. The Mental Capacity Act 2005 came into effect from October 2007, with the Lasting Power of Attorney replacing the old Enduring Power of Attorney.
Lasting Power of Attorney allows you to take control of your circumstances before it is too late to nominate a trusted individual to help make decisions for you in the event you have been rendered unable to do so, for example, in the case of a degenerative disease, an accident or a stroke giving you the power to legally entitle them to make decisions for you.
Dealing with someone’s affairs when they die can be complicated and confusing, especially at a difficult and emotional time. We can help support you and provide direction to administer your friend or loved ones estate.
Whether you need some advice on what steps you need to take in order to deal with the estate of a loved one or you are looking for someone to carry out services on your behalf, whatever your circumstances we have the right answers and solutions for you. At a time of loss, financial matters are very sensitive be reassured that Parks Wills offer Fixed Fee Probate Services. This means you will agree the cost upfront and there will be no hidden surprises.
Many couples believe they own 50% of their property each, and so upon death wish to leave their half to their partner their children or other chosen beneficiaries. In fact, the majority of homes are actually owned as ‘Joint Tenants’, which effectively means each spouse/partner owns 100%.
So when one spouse/ partner dies the surviving spouse/partner automatically becomes the sole owner. This may be okay as you wanted your spouse /partner to inherit, but if you wanted your children from a previous relationship to inherit this will leave you no choices to whom you would like to leave your share to in your Will, as your spouse/partner will automatically inherit the whole of the property.
PREPARING TO MEET YOUR CONSULTANT AND HOW WE WORK
You can visit us in our offices, or if you prefer we can meet with you in the comfort of your own home. Prior to the meeting, we will send you a check list of things for you to consider before you attend your meeting.
The check list is designed to help structure your thinking and prepare you. Whether you are embarking on a Will for the first time or reviewing an existing Will or updating to reflect your present circumstance or including possible future planning you may wish to consider around protecting assets.
It is recommended you speak to and gain consent with the people you have chosen to administrate your estate. These are known as your Executors or Attorneys when drafting an LPA. This small amount of preparation will allow more time to discuss your wishes and aspirations with your Consultant.
