DO YOU NEED HELP WITH WRITING A WILL?

The preparation or amendment of a will is something that many people put off, but shouldn't. Every adult should make a will and review it regularly, particularly if their circumstances change, such as they get married, have children or get divorced.

At Spicketts Battrick Law Practice, we make writing a will quick, easy and affordable. All it takes is some thought about who should benefit after your death and we will take care of the rest.

 WHY SHOULD I MAKE A WILL?

• So that you can decide who should benefit after your death

• To avoid Inheritance Tax

• To appoint trustees to look after your assets until your children become old enough

• It is a quick and easy process

• It doesn't cost much at all - at Spicketts Battrick Law Practice we charge as little as £120 plus VAT

LIVING WILLS

A living will is a document that contains advance directions on stopping life-prolonging treatment, should the situation arise. Living wills have been with us for some years now, but lawyers and doctors alike are unclear as to their status in law. This is why, should you wish to make a living will, they need to be thorough, clear and concise.

The dedicated solicitors at Spicketts Battrick Law Practice can assist with wording of your living will and store it with your original will for safe keeping. Keep copies for yourself and make sure your next of kin are aware of the existence of the documents and their whereabouts.

POWER OF ATTORNEY

A power of attorney is a written document which gives another person the right to act on your behalf, either generally or in specific matters.

A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a specific type of power of attorney, which gives a person the right to act for the donor of the power in their financial affairs, and to continue to do so even if the donor has become mentally incapable.

Our dedicated solicitors are happy to carry out this role for any client that may require it or to assist with granting power of attorney to another individual.
