Did you know that over 50% of the UK population does not have a will, with many of
them not knowing how to make one?
Plus, the only way you can legally specify what provisions to make for your children
under 18 if you die, is through your will!
You can protect your loved one’s future by making your will.
Whether you’re a single person, starting a family, or retired, it’s wise to consider your
future and the future of loved ones.
No one can genuinely foresee their own death, and it’s a situation we don’t like
thinking about. However, having your will in place can reduce a lot of stress and
heartache in the future for your family.
Having a will can mean the right people are catered for, and in some cases, this
could be crucial. It could mean the difference between your child receiving the
education you planned for them or not, to making sure that your children are cared
for by people you trust.
Appointing a guardian for your children in your will makes it clear how you wish them
to be cared for and by whom.
Making sure your money goes to the right people: you’ll have no say if you don’t
write a will. If you make no provision, the worst-case scenario is that the decision is
made by a stranger in court.
There may be situations where you want money to be provided for a specific reason
in the future, such as funding a child’s university education or providing a deposit for
their first house.
And…..maybe you want to provide for friends who have supported you and been
generous with their friendship. This is your way of repaying their kindness.
And don’t forget…….if you have a partner and you’re unmarried, you need to specify
in a will what you want to leave them; otherwise, they could receive nothing!

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.
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.
Placing a legacy into trust for children or grandchildren may be an effective way of ensuring that younger people receive their inheritance at an age when they are more financially responsible such as 21 or 25.
Those with special needs require particular protection if their potential inheritance is not to be sequestered by Local Authorities to pay for Community, Residential or Nursing Care. The use of a discretionary disabled trust can help in such cases.
Owning property or other assets overseas can raise inheritance issues which may be very different to English Laws. It is essential that you have a properly drawn up will in the country where you hold assets. We have access to professional firms in most European countries.

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.
Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) – This document allows you to appoint people that you trust to make decisions for you if have lost your mental capacity through illness or an accident. Without this in place families can face enormous difficulties in handling your affairs at a difficult time. An LPA can be used to delegate decisions relating to personal welfare, including health care and medical treatment decisions, as well as decisions about financial matters
