Confidence Tricksters & Estate Planning…

Our attention is sometimes caught by media reports of manipulative individuals taking advantage of older or vulnerable people for financial gain.
This might be by convincing the person to change their Will, or set up a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in respect of Property and Financial Affairs, in their favour.

Representing my views on healthcare

When we become too ill to speak for ourselves we are said to have ‘lost capacity’. Necessary decisions about treatment and care will be made by medical professionals, deciding what is in our best interests and acting accordingly. For your voice to be heard, an appropriate person will have to make an application to become your Health and Welfare Deputy.

What’s happening with Probate fees?

The planned increase to Probate Fees has not yet happened – though it’s still likely that it will. What can you do to assist your Executors, who will have to pay the fee when they apply for the Grant of Probate? We can advise you. Book an appointment with us to ensure your estate is prepared.

Are you an Organ Donor?

Pre-paid funeral plan provider, Rest Assured Funeral Plans, have partnered with the NHS in a pilot scheme to increase membership of the Organ Donor Register. It is hoped that people who are already having frank conversations about death will be open to discussing what should happen to their bodies when they die.
