  What if I die without making a Will?  

 
If you care about who inherits your estate, and you want everything to be 'OK', then you need an up to date professionally drafted Will. 
 
If you die without a Will, then the Government will decide who will inherit your estate in accordance with the Laws of Intestacy.

  What are Lasting Powers of Attorney? (LPA’s)  

 
Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) enable you to legally empower people you trust, (say, family and friends) to manage your affairs at times when you are unable to do so, or simply don’t feel up to it. 
 
Usually when a person has lost mental capacity, relatives who are simply trying to help, will find themselves shut out by many institutions including banks, pension providers and utility companies.

  Long Term Care and Who Pays for it!  

 
People are very worried about the issue of paying for Long Term Care. 
 
Your home may be under real threat if you later require long-term residential or personal care, so we all need to plan more carefully for our future, if we wish our beneficiaries to inherit what we feel is rightfully theirs.

  What Happens to Your Business if You Die?  

 
Don’t let your business die with you! 
 
If you are the sole director or your company has multiple directors, have you stopped to consider what would happen if you or one of your fellow directors died or lost mental capacity (through a stroke for example)? 
 
How long would your company survive? Who would look after your spouse and family?

  What is Pre-Purchasing a Funeral Plan?  

 
By purchasing a funeral plan, not only are you removing a huge burden from your loved ones, you will also make substantial savings. 
 
The funeral director's costs are frozen at today's prices rather than those at the time of your passing. 
 
Also, you can part, or fully plan the occasion. It’s not a morbid exercise. One way or another, everyone pays the cost of their own funeral.

  What is Probate?  

 
Probate is the judicial process whereby a will is "proved" in a court and accepted as a valid public document that is the true last testament of the deceased. 
 
If a person dies with a valid will in place, they will have named one or more people, known as executors, to administer the probate process on their estate.
