We have seen an increasing number of enquiries in relation to Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney over recent weeks. So, why is it important to ensure you and your loved ones have a valid will in place?
Without having a Will in place by the time you die, there are certain rules, known as the ‘Rules of Intestacy’, which apply to your estate that are beyond the control of those around you. These rules can result in people not benefiting from your Will that you would otherwise have wanted to.
While the prime purpose of a Will is to ensure your estate reaches the right people, having a Will also enables you to protect your estate in certain ways and provides the opportunity to review your current tax position.
Business owners may also consider entering into a Business Lasting Power of Attorney to ensure that their business and its finances are safeguarded in the event that they are unable to do so themselves.
