Will Writing

What is a will and why should I have one?

A will is a legal document that allows you to state what should happen to your money, investments, possessions and property as well as your minor children after you have passed away.

What is a Power of Attorney?

Power of Attorney is a legal document where one person (the donor) gives one or more people (the attorneys) the right to make decisions on their behalf. If you want someone to act on your behalf in financial or medical decisions, you’ll need to give them Power of Attorney over your affairs. Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is the most common form of Power of Attorney. You can only set up an LPA if you’re over 18 and still have the ability to make decisions for yourself, so it’s a good idea to put one in place as soon as possible.

It’s worth noting that during the process of setting up an LPA, it needs to be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian and this can take up to 10 weeks.

To find out more about different types of LPA and how to set one up, please speak to our Will Writer.

Please note that will writing and trusts are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
