Planning for the future is something we do throughout our lives. But the older we get the less we want to even think about it, let alone plan for it.
Here at The Legacy Studio, we work with you to ensure that you are protected whilst you are still with us, and that your wishes are carried out when the time comes. Whilst it’s not always an easy thought process, it is vital.
Fully Regulated Planning
Built on Trusting Relationships
High Quality, Impartial Advice
Without a Will the Government decides what happens to everything you have and own. Your closest family and friends will get no say in who has what, or in what proportions.
If you are in a relationship, but are not married or in a civil partnership, then your partner may not even be able to stay in the home you have shared for many years.
Writing a Will is a way to ensure that your wishes are carried out. The people you want to leave things to will receive them and your funeral can be what you want it to be.
Dealing with an estate is often complicated and extremely time consuming. Inheritance Tax has to be calculated and paid upfront to the HMRC, a Grant of Probate has to be applied for, beneficiaries have to receive what has been specified for them. There may be property to sell, or investments to cash in.
Having a Lasting Power of Attorney in place for your ‘Health and Wellbeing’ and for your ‘Finances and Property’, ensures that should you become too ill to make decisions for yourself, your chosen, trusted, Attorney(s) can act for you.
These documents can make all the difference to your life and those closest to you. Without them bills and expenses could go unpaid, and decisions made about your health and treatment by professionals who do not know you.
Purchasing a funeral plan now, means that you pay for your funeral at today’s prices – and that those closest to you don’t have to worry about finding the money at a time they should be left to grieve.
Funeral costs increase at an alarming 10% per year, so purchasing your plan ahead of time is a great cost saving.
Your funeral plan can contain all the detail of how you would like your funeral to be… the location, music, flowers… you can be as specific as you would like and so take even more stress away from those you leave behind as they’ll know exactly what your wishes are.
We offer a personal service. We will spend time with you and discuss your thoughts, your wishes, and your options. We will then explain the consequences of the decisions you make, to ensure you are completely happy you have made the correct decisions.
We are a father daughter team and so understand the value of family and friends. We are experts in our field and are interested in you as an individual, unlike some large law firms to whom you’re just a way to help them to generate income.
