There has never been a better time to get your affairs in order.
By David Hill, Partner, Private Client Team at Mogers Drewett
Making a Will is never high on our list of priorities but if the last few weeks have shown us anything, it’s that life can certainly be unpredictable. So, it’s never too soon to think about putting safeguards in place to protect your loved ones.
Making a Will is easier than you think
Depending on your situation, the starting point could be as simple as listing what you own and what should happen to those things should circumstances change, forming the basis of your Will.
We’ll happily have an informal, no obligation discussion with you to address any concerns you may have and get you started. We can provide all the information you need to make informed decisions, and answer any questions you have that relate to your specific circumstances.
Currently we are all working remotely to protect our clients and staff but we have systems in place to enable us to communicate in whichever way you are most comfortable, including phone, email and Skype. We can also advise on how to have your Will witnessed and be compliant without coming into direct contact with others, even though it is still a requirement to have two people (who are not beneficiaries in your Will) witness your signature.
Choose who looks after your affairs when you can’t
A Power of Attorney is a legal document which enables you to appoint someone to manage and make decisions about your affairs in the event that you are unable to.
There are different types of power of attorney for different purposes but the most well-known is the Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). There are two types of LPA: one for property and finance and one for health and care. We’re happy to discuss the options to ensure the right one is put in place for you.
One of the main benefits of an LPA is the reassurance of knowing that in the future, if you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself, you have appointed someone you know and trust to make them for you, giving you and your loved ones peace of mind.
So, if you want to take control of your affairs, making a difficult time a little easier for those you love, call our Private Client team today on
