For Wills/ Probate and Powers of Attorney

Many people are put off making a will simply because they are unaware of the severe consequences to their family if anything was to happen to them. However if you care about your family and care about who inherits your estate then you need an up to date professionally drafted will –NOW !. If you die without a will, then the government will decide who will inherit your estate in accordance with the laws of intestacy.

A will protects your beneficiaries interests after you've died, but a Lasting Power of Attorney protects your own interests while you’re still alive – up to the point where you die. The moment you die, the power of attorney ceases and your will becomes relevant instead. There's no overlap.

In essence, by setting up a Lasting Power of Attorney, you give someone you trust the authority to make decisions and to act on your behalf and in your best interests – while you're still living and breathing.
