Death and disability are not subjects that anybody likes to dwell on but it is best to deal with them - as far as possible - sooner rather than later - while both the body and the brain are in good condition. Following that, an annual review of all your finances and objectives is all that most of us need in the future.
There is nothing to stop anybody from putting pen to paper and writing their own will, preparing a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) or making an application to the Probate Office for a Grant of Probate in respect of a recently deceased person. None of these are currently regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) so do not think you have to pay an expensive professional to deal with matters on your behalf.
However, mistakes in any of these documents can be both expensive and time consuming. If you decide that you do not want to risk any problems please contact us for assistance. There is no charge to you for making an enquiry. If you do instruct us to work on your behalf all fees are fixed.
Please read on to discover how you can look after yourself and also your loved ones.
