Basic Wills

A Basic Will is essential to ensure that your Estate is distributed as you would wish. Basic Wills. It is the foundation of Estate Planning and enables you to nominate Executors and Guardians. It provides no mitigation against Inheritance Tax nor any safeguards against the erosion of your Estate by Care Home Fees.

Advanced Directives

A Living Will (also known as an Advance Medical Directive) provides the opportunity to document your wishes with respect to end of life medical treatment in a form that is accepted by both the BMA and RCN.

A Living Will allows you to decide in advance of a debilitating illness or injury what is acceptable in the way of medical treatment or life support procedures, and comes into effect when you are mentally impaired, such as with a coma, and unable to communicate with medical professionals as to the acceptability of certain medical treatments.

It may be advisable to seek advice from your General Practitioner or another medical professional.

Secure Storage

Writing your Will is only the first step.
Only your original Will correctly signed and witnessed is legally valid. A copy, whilst useful, is not deemed legal for the distribution of your estate.

It is a surprising statistic that one in three Wills are never found, and if your Will cannot be found decisions will be made by the Courts under the Rules of Intestacy.

Consequently…

Your Will needs to be kept safe and protected. Anglian Will Writing provides a number of storage options which ensures the safety of your Wills and any other document of importance you may wish to keep with them.

Property Protection Trust

According to a recent survey of 66 councils in England, last year 70,000 homes were sold to pay for residential or nursing care!

One in every three women and one in every four men are likely to require long term residential care.

Fees in Care Homes vary considerably, but are in the order of £15,000 to £25,000 depending on facilities and the area of the country.

In April 1993 the Community Care Act came into force in the UK. It removed responsibility for assessing needs and paying for care from the Department of Social Security to Local Authorities. It gave the right to the Local Authorities to means test individuals to assess whether any financial assistance will be given. If you have assets valued at over £23,500 and require residential care, you are responsible for the costs and the Local Authority may obtain an order enabling the sale of assets including the home to meet the costs.

The property must be jointly owned as “Tenants in Common”. Each partner leaves their share of the property (usually 50%) in trust for children or other beneficiaries rather than to the joint owner of the property.

This means that the survivor never becomes sole owner of the property which prevents the Local Authority including the whole value of the property when totalling assets if the survivor needs permanent residential care. So the most that could be claimed against is the survivor’s half of the property.
