Special offers for reader of Together magazine
Leicester Hospitals Charity does a fantastic job of raising funds for the hospitals…and we like to help those that help others.
We have a great offer – a massive £95 off the price of a single or mirror Will. (If you’re not familiar with the term ‘mirror Will’ it simply means that the wishes of you and your partner are a direct reflection of each others).
To add to the satisfaction of knowing you’ve put your affairs in order and potentially maximised what’s left for your loved ones, we’ll also donate £15 to LHC!
Why make a Will?
More than two thirds of people do not have a Will, often based on assumptions about who will benefit. Without a Will, you are relying on the statutory law at the time of your death to decide what should happen to your assets.
Making a Will can provide you with peace of mind, knowing that in the event of your death your wishes will be carried out. Your assets can be administered in the way you would want, setting out important choices such as your funeral arrangements, guardians for minor (young) children, and any gifts you wish to make.
Is your Will fit for purpose? We can tell you, totally free of charge
If you made it 3 years ago or more possibly (and certainly 5 years or more) , then there’s a strong chance it’s “past its sell by date”
Maybe you got married, had a child, experienced the loss of a loved one, got divorced, moved jobs, up-sized, down-sized, started your own business or bought a holiday home abroad: the world keeps turning – laws change, tax rules change, governments change.
What has changed for you?
- A marriage or civil partnership automatically revokes an existing will (although conversion to marriage from a civil partnership does not)
- Death of a beneficiary, executor or guardian
- Changed relationships
- Gifts of specific items – if you no longer have the particular item or want it to go to someone different
- Foreign property
- Business interests – if you have started a new business or your business interests have changed
- Insurance policies – if you have acquired a financial product with a life policy element
- Trusts – if you have acquired an interest under a trust
- Wealth – if you have acquired greater wealth, tax planning would be sensible.
- Long Term care is expensive but you can mitigate its impact.
Now you’ve thought about the changes that have happened, give us a call and we’ll help you get your Will back in shape.
Why do you need an LPA?
Anyone could lose “capacity” through illness or accident and an LPA ensures that someone you know and trust can help administer your affairs.
Part of living longer involves healthier lifestyles and keeping fit with activities such as cycling, mountain biking, rugby, football, winter sports, jogging, horse riding and many others: all carry an element of risk. Even the daily commute isn’t without obvious dangers. Accidents can strike at any time – they say “you never know what’s around the corner” but being prepared can go a long way.
Without an LPA, an application can be made by someone (your Deputy) to the Court Of Protection…but this can take a considerable time, can provide unnecessary stress, and additional expense. It’s the proverbial “locking the stable door after the horse has bolted” and will take longer, cost more, and be more stressful than having made a LPA in the first place.
The small print:
Our ‘normal’ price for a Will is [from] £245 (before the LHC discount) for a single, standard Will. Examples of what falls outside of the description ‘standard’ include (but are not limited to) having multiple beneficiaries, leaving multiple gifts, advice on trusts, and inheritance tax advice. At the time of the meeting you will be informed if additional charges are likely to be incurred.
This discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount by Wilson Browne Solicitors.
The offer may be withdrawn at any time, without notice, prior to any appointment or meeting.
