Will Writing in Leeds

Why The Legacy Studio

Tony and Helen, a father and daughter team, set up The Legacy Studio because they realised that most people don’t have a Will in place. 

Many people have never heard of a Lasting Power of Attorney and so don’t realise how vital they are in case they become ill at any time and can’t deal with their own affairs. 

Tony and Helen both appreciate just how complex dealing with probate can be for those left behind.

If you are going to discuss your wishes, for your funeral and for the things you leave behind, you need someone you can trust. You need someone who is easy to talk to and who explains things in simple, understandable terms. You need someone who is going to walk you through the process, making it as stress-free for you as possible. However, you also need someone who is going to make sure you have considered everything.  Things you may not have thought about.

Many people think that going to a solicitor is the only option to have a Will written or a Lasting Power of Attorney created.  However, large law firms don’t always see their clients as individuals with thoughts and feelings… it’s more about generating revenue and getting the job done.  When planning for the end of your life and your legacy, you deserve personal service.

Wills Writing Services

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.

PROBATE SERVICES

Probate Service

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.

Sometimes it can feel totally overwhelming whist you are still coming to terms with your bereavement. And, if you are the Executor, then its also worth noting that you are responsible to the other beneficiaries legally for your decisions for the next 21 years.

Lasting Power of Attorney

Lasting Power of Attorney

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.

Funeral Plans

Funeral Plans

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.
