As we all cautiously emerge from lockdown, many of us are looking to ensure that our affairs are in order.
Sadly, too many families are looking at a future without a loved one. Some are facing the uncertainty caused by not having a Will. Where there is no Will, the law decides who receives a share of the estate – and this is not always as you would expect.
Many of us have seen family members become ill, or at least forced to stay at home and this can highlight other issues such as who takes care of the day to day matters, such as paying the bills? A Lasting Power of Attorney for Property and Finance could help with that, enabling a chosen person to take the reins.
In some cases, medical decisions are required urgently. Having a Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare in place means that a trusted person, chosen by you, can make decisions in your best interests on your behalf.
