At Howard Wright our Estate Planning process, will review the following areas.
Often many people think that their spouse or next of kin will automatically inherit the whole of the Estate, in reality, this is not always the case. It may also be that even if this does happen, it is not how you would want your assets distributed.
By having a valid Will, you can decide what will happen to your assets in the event of your death. At Howard Wright, as part of our Estate Planning process we will review any existing Wills to establish if this still remains relevant. If it is no longer in keeping with your wishes or, if you have never had a Will our fully qualified Will Writers, will not only draft a will but also offer advice on how your wishes may impact other areas of your financial plan.
Powers of Attorney
Powers of Attorney are often overlooked, but are a crucial part of the estate planning process. A Powers of Attorney will allow you to select an individual or individuals to take your financial or medical decisions on your behalf should you not be able to do so, due to ill health, a life changing accident or the loss of mental capacity.
By having Powers of Attorney in place, this gives you peace of mind that should the worst happen to you, your chosen Attorney or Attorneys can manage your affairs on your behalf.
At Howard Wright as part of our Estate Planning process we will be able to advise on and draft the relevant documents for establishing your Powers of Attorneys.
