Wills, Trusts and Power of Attorneys

Wills, Trusts and Power of Attorneys

Wills

If you die without a Will, your assets will be distributed in accordance with the intestacy rules which could mean, for instance, your spouse not inheriting all of your estates. By drafting a Will you will ensure that those you wish to inherit your assets on your death do in fact inherit them after your death.

We’ll make the Will writing process as easy as possible and we’ll talk to you in plain English. We have prepared a document which serves as guidance and a questionnaire that enables us to obtain all the information we require from you and guide you through the process. Please be in touch if you require a free copy.

Trust

A trust is a way of managing assets (money, investments, land or buildings). Trusts involve:
the “settlor” – the person who puts assets into a trust;
the “trustee” – the person who manages the trust;
the “beneficiary” – the person who benefits from the trust.
Our lawyers will provide you with a bespoke plan to help achieve your individual requirements.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

A lasting power of attorney is a legal document which is drafted to appoint on or more people to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf. A well thought out power of attorney gives you control over what happens to you if you are unable to make your own decisions for example, following an accident or an illness. There are two types of Lasting Powers of Attorneys: (i) health and welfare and (ii) property and financial affairs.
Our lawyers will speak to you to understand your requirements and then draft a lasting power of attorney that meets your requirements.
