Wills, Probate and Mental Capacity

Do I need a Will?

If you pass away without having a Will your assets will pass to your surviving relatives under the Intestacy Rules. If you have no relatives all your assets can end up going to the state. It is vital to have a Will to ensure your assets are given to those you want to benefit on your passing. A Will is also a useful tool to express your wishes as to who should care for your children should all those with parental responsibility pass away.

What is Probate?

Probate is the process to get the legal right to deal with a deceased person’s property, money and possessions.

What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document that lets you appoint one or more people to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf.
