Make your voice heard!

Legally, you can have someone else to speak for you if you’re no longer able to do so. You need to complete and register a Lasting Power of Attorney to give the person or people you trust the legal power to be your voice.
There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), and at the moment a lot of people are setting up Health & Welfare LPAs.

Having tough conversations

People who are already vulnerable are concerned about the Coronavirus.  People working on the front line in healthcare, public transport, and other key roles know that they are risking their health and that of those they live with.
Talking about healthcare wishes, talking about financial and funeral arrangements, talking about Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney… Big topics.

Making a Will or LPA from home

You won’t be surprised to learn that the COVID-19 outbreak has made lots of people think about their Will, or who will help them with their money or decisions about medical treatment if they are hospitalised. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to have peace of mind about these things. You can access any of our services by telephone consultation, and do not need to visit us in our office or invite us to your home.

How do I manage the money when someone dies?

When someone dies, their money and possessions have to be sorted out.  If they had a Will, there will be named Executors who take this on. If they did not have a Will, then usually the next of kin is the person responsible. These people are legally allowed to manage the ‘estate’, and are known as the Personal Representatives (PRs).
