Mogers Drewett: there has never been a better time to get your affairs in order
Making a Will is not high on our list of priorities, after all none of us want to dwell on what would happen if we weren’t around – but if the last two years have shown us anything 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 circumstances, starting to make your Will could simply be a matter of listing what you own along with instructions as to which of your loved ones you would like to receive them. We’ll happily have an informal, no obligation chat with you to address any concerns you may have to get you started and we can provide all the information you need to make informed choices and decisions.
Make sure you 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 do so.
There are different types of power of attorney for different purposes but most well-known are Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). There are two types of LPAs: One for property and finance and one for health and care. We would be happy to discuss the various options with you to ensure you put in place the right one for you.
One of the benefits of having an LPA in place 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 those decisions for you, giving you and your loved ones peace of mind.
