Planning for the future

Planning for the future is not something that most of us want to think about but at some point someone else will have to deal with our affairs, for one reason or another.
For example: What would happen if you became incapable of managing things for yourself?Who would deal with everything on your behalf?What happens if you die without making a Will?What would happen to your belongings?Will they end up where you want them to be?What would happen if you or a parent need some form of residential care?As difficult as it might be, the best solution is to take some time to put your affairs in order now – make your own decisions about exactly how you want everything to be.
Once the decisions are made, have the appropriate documents drawn up, these could be Wills, Trusts or Lasting Powers of Attorney – your solicitor can deal with all of them for you – then you can be secure in the knowledge that your wishes will be carried out whatever the future might bring.
For most people, a basic Will is sufficient, but if your affairs are more complex, our expert team will be able to give you a fixed fee cost and fully advise you about the contents of your Will to ensure it meets your needs and circumstances.
Already got a Will?If you have already taken this important step, make sure it always reflects your wishes. You should update your Will every 2 to 5 years or earlier if there is any change in your personal circumstances.  We will be happy to carry out a review of your Will and make sure it still meets your needs based on your current circumstances.
Need more help?We can also advise you about setting up a Trust or creating a Lasting Power of Attorney, without obligation.
