70% of the UK population do not have a valid Will. These are just a few reasons why it is important not to die intestate (without a will).
The Court of Protection will decide what happens to your children. This may not necessarily be who you would have chosen yourself.
It is wrongly assumed that your nearest and dearest will automatically receive these assets. It can be a long and complicated process to distribute these and not always to those assumed. This can cause rifts in the families where one party remembers being "promised" a particular heirloom.
Without a Will, this can be a particularly stressful time for families having to locate a lifetime of paperwork and arrange for payments to be made once Probate has been granted. This process could take years. Wouldn't you much rather they could sit back and celebrate your life?
Funeral arranging and organ donation for a loved one can be terribly difficult and painful for your family to agree as to what your last wishes might be. Why put them through that?
We believe that its so important to make sure that your affairs are in order in the event of your death so nothing is left to chance.
We have therefore made referral arrangements with a firm of will writers that will charge a lot less than most solicitors with fees starting from as little as £95 for a single will. Not a lot of money for peace of mind!
If you lose the ability to make decisions for yourself, a stranger could be appointed to make the decisions for you, even if your family knows what your wishes are.
A Lasting Power of Attorney could be equally as important as a Will. If this is something you feel that you would need to arrange call us on 020 8850 5000.
