A will is a very important document. It allows you to formally decide what will happen to your money, property and possessions after your death.
When you make a will you’ll be able to appoint executors to administer your estate, set out your wishes for your funeral, and bequeath gifts to your loved ones and charitable organisations.
Making a will can help to avoid your money being passed on to individuals you wouldn’t have chosen, can direct your assets away from nursing home fees, and can ensure your family won’t pay more inheritance tax than they need to.
Making a Living Will
Some people choose to work with their solicitor to make what is known as a living will. A living will is a legal document that allows you to set out at what stage and in which circumstances you would wish to refuse medical or life sustaining treatment.
A living will may be ideal if you are concerned about your loved ones knowing what your wishes are should you no longer be able to communicate them.
We can advise you on all the considerations of a living will and help you to decide whether it’s right for you, or whether a Lasting Power of Attorney may be more appropriate.
