Wills and Trusts
Making or changing a will is something that people seem to believe that they can always put off to another day. It is understandable because no one wants to contemplate their own death. That is a mistake. The number of people who die without leaving a valid will is still very high.
The consequences of not making a will are significant. On death a great deal of time can be wasted trying to find a will because there is no way of knowing for sure whether or not one was made. More importantly, your estate is unlikely to pass to who you expect or intend. Many people believe that it will automatically pass to the surviving spouse which often is not the case. That can cause great problems and anxiety. The absence of a will can also lead to disputes and claims against the estate. The inevitable result is expense and delay.
All of these problems can be avoided simply and relatively cheaply by making a valid will. Labrums Solicitors can give you detailed and expert advice in the preparation of wills to ensure that your wishes are carried out.
More significantly, a combination of a well prepared will and trusts can also be used to great effect to protect your assets for generations to come. You will have worked long and hard to build up your wealth. Why give it away when by careful ‘bloodline planning’ it can be kept for the benefit of your family for generations.
By ‘bloodline planning’ Labrums Solicitors are able to protect your hard earned assets from not only the tax man and local authority for care costs but also from the risk that your surviving spouse or children form relationships with someone you would not wish your estate to pass to, get divorced or have creditors.
