Wills 

It is estimated that nearly two-thirds of adults have not made a Will. Some see it as morbid, unnecessary, complicated, time consuming, expensive or something to do in the future. At Lentells Estates and Probate Services, we are able to work with you offering advice and support on all the key areas you need to consider. 

 

Making a Will does not need to be complicated or expensive, but it will require some thought and planning. If you die without having made a Will that is 'intestate', your assets will be distributed in line with the law of the land. This may not be in accordance with your own wishes, but without a will there will be no other option. Dying intestate can be a complex administrative process and as a result costs can mount up, ending up being far more expensive than making a Will in the first place. 

 

Not making a Will can be a costly mistake, but dying with a Will that is out of date can cause significant problems. Many people make their Will when they buy their first property, so it is only natural that situations will change considerably over the years. There are two ways you can update your Will:

 

  • You can start again from scratch if there are substantial changes you would like to make;
  • Add a Codicil. This is a way of adding new clauses to an existing Will and is best suited for making small amendments.

 

Lentells Estates and Probate Services can advise on the best method and ensure that you have considered all the implications of any amendments or additions. 

 

Lasting Power of Attorney 

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that allows you to appoint one or more persons to help you make decisions in the future regarding your welfare and financial arrangements should you have an accident, an illness or loose the mental capacity to make your own decisions.
