Some questions to consider…
- If you died tomorrow, are your wishes for your loved ones clear?
- Will those you care about receive what you’d like them to receive, or will they be left fighting over uncertain documents, or even worse will they have to hand a huge chunk to the Taxman?
- If you had an accident tonight and were left unable to fend for yourself, who would look after your finances or even make decisions about what should happen to you?
All of these events are really difficult, uncertain and distressing times. But failing to make provision in advance makes it all so much more difficult.
If you plan in advance, when you are in good health and the difficult times are hopefully many years away, you can make it much easier for your children and loved ones to get through what needs to be done as easily as possible.
- Has anything significant changed since you last prepared your Will or Lasting Power of Attorney? Have you moved house, started a business, had children or grandchildren, got divorced? Have any beneficiaries died or become inappropriate in some other way?
If changes have been made in your life, it’s important that your Will and Lasting Power of Attorney reflect these changes and are kept up to date; otherwise you might find the wishes you had 20 years ago are no longer suitable for how things are now.
Imagine how you would feel if your current partner had to watch everything being left to your ex from 10 years ago?
