Back to the Future!
Let’s face it, Marty McFly had the right idea when he got in the DeLorean to have a look at the future!
Sadly, we can’t offer any trips in the DeLorean – but we can help you with your future plans
by working with you to put a Will and Lasting Power of Attorney in place…
None of us really know what the future holds which is why it’s so important to plan ahead and put your affairs in good order by making a Will and setting up a Lasting Power of Attorney.
A Will is the only way to make sure that your money, personal belongings and property go to the people and causes that you care about.
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows you to put in place arrangements for the future if a time came when you needed someone to look after your financial affairs and/or make decisions in relation to your health and welfare on your behalf.
Our ‘What happens if I die without making a Will’ flowchart shows how your estate would be distributed if a Will were not in place – something which can have unfair and unintended consequences. You could especially be affected if you cohabit, as, according to UK law, common law marriage doesn’t exist.
Many people associate Wills and LPAs with older people, but they should really be considered while you are mentally fit and well, so you are able to choose people you trust to look after your welfare and finances, protecting family wealth for future generations.
All of us at Band Hatton Button send our very best wishes for a Happy 2023.
A New Year is the perfect time to get your affairs in order. If you are interested in making a Will or LPA, or know someone that is, don’t hesitate to contact our friendly and knowledgeable team on 02476 632121 to discuss how we can help.
