Wills & Lasting Powers of Attorney
It is extremely important to make a Will to ensure you have control over your assets, and decisions you want made upon your death, such as who your child(ren) should live with and who should benefit from your estate. To prevent the law from determining how your assets should be apportioned and to who, it is imperative that you consider making a Will whenever there is a substantial change to your personal circumstances, such as a divorce or separation.
A Will can also help reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax that might be payable on money or assets that you leave behind, including your property, depending upon the value of this. We pay enough tax in our lifetime, we certainly do not want our beneficiaries to lose out because we have to pay more upon our death.
