Looking for advice on how to plan for the future? Not sure where to begin? Let us guide you.

We provide the following services. 

Wills

Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. If you have not made a valid Will, your property will pass according to the rules of Intestacy. This may not be what you would have wished. In any event it is likely to take longer to finalise than if you had made a valid Will.

Life events that could require a Will, or an updated Will.

Birth of a child  / Grandchild

Marriage 

Divorce

Financial changes e.g. new home, new job, inheritance 

Death of a loved one

Lasting Power of Attorney

One way to plan for the future is by creating what is called a lasting power of attorney (LPA). An LPA is a simple way for you to choose someone you trust to make decisions for you. An LPA is a legal document that you name the people you would like to make decisions for you when you do not want to or can’t make some decisions yourself. You can make an LPA for decisions about your Property and Financial Affairs or about your Health and Welfare.​ If there is not an LPA in place the Court of Protection will appoint a deputy to act on your behalf, and this person may not be somebody you would have appointed.

Trusts

A Trust is an arrangement whereby persons (the trustees) hold and administer property or money for the benefit of others (the beneficiaries). The Trustees become the legal “owners” of the Trust property. At Your Will Service, we offer specialist advice in a range trusts in order to ensure what is left to them does not face unnecessary tax, can continue to be administered without the appointment by the courts of a receiver.

Inheritance Tax Planning

Inheritance tax (IHT) is a tax that may be payable when you die. Whether it has to be paid, and how much, is based on the value of your assets. An asset is anything of value that is owned, for example cash, investments, businesses, cars, homes, payouts from life assurance etc. 

Funeral Plans

Purchasing a funeral plan enables you to pre-plan, pre-design and pre-pay all your end of life services in advance. In doing so, you enjoy peace of mind. Particularly, you help lighten the emotional burden and much of the financial worry from your next of kin at a time in their lives when they are least able to cope.

A funeral plan enables you to fix the cost at today’s prices. The sooner you start on a plan, the better you can avoid rising funeral costs. Funeral plans also enable you to specify precisely what funeral you’d wish for, as opposed to leaving your next of kin wondering which end-of-life services you would have liked.
