Our experts can help you with:

Will writing

Wills are essential documents to have in place to ensure your loved ones are provided for should the worst happen. They are arguably one of the most important documents you can have and can do more than you realise.

A Will allows you to have control of what happens to your money, property and possessions upon your death. It is also the final bit of communication when you pass away.

Whether you consider yourself to have many possessions or much money, it is still important to make a Will.

Trusts

Trusts can be useful vehicles to use to protect your assets in the long term.

You may wish to obtain advice around trusts if you find yourself in any of the following situations:
  • You wish to protect your estate from future care fees and/or remarriage of a surviving partner
  • Someone you wish to remember in your will is going through a divorce or bankruptcy
  • One of your loved ones is unable to manage their own finances for any reason
  • You wish to mitigate your inheritance tax liability

It is really important, you receive tailored advice before setting up any trusts.

Powers of Attorney

Whereas Wills protect you and your loved ones once you pass away, Powers of Attorney offer protection during your lifetime.

Contrary to popular belief, no one automatically has the authority to make decisions for you should you be unable to do so yourself, not even spouses or family members.

Care Home Fee Protection

A concern we often hear from clients is how they can best protect their assets from care home fees should they require care later on.

Currently, if you have capital of more than £23,250 and find yourself needing care, this care is privately funded by you. “Capital” includes properties, savings, premium bonds and shares. The fees for care homes are often more than £1000 per week. For many people, this has meant that the property and cash assets they have worked hard to acquire is spent on care, significantly reducing what they can leave to their loved ones.

Inheritance Tax

Inheritance Tax is something important to have in mind when getting your affairs in order. With the correct preparation, the impact of Inheritance Tax on your estate can be mitigated. Part of this preparation is having the correct Will in place, particularly if you’re part of an unmarried couple.

Protecting your legacy

One important (but often overlooked!) part of getting your affairs in order is to ensure that practical and personal information is left for your loved ones to help them administer your estate and make decisions for you, such as arranging your funeral.

As Wills are clinical documents that provide the legal side of administering your estate, your loved ones can be left with a lot of unanswered questions should you pass away, only leaving a Will.

To avoid this turmoil for them, the best way of passing on practical and personal information is via Letters of Wishes and/or our “Just to let you know…” booklet.

Our ‘Just To Let You Know’ Booklet is a carefully created booklet to accompany your Will, leaving behind your last wishes and words of wisdom when you are no longer here. It is unique to the RightWill service.

Frequently asked questions

Your property will be divided according to certain legal inflexible rules. Some of these may surprise you and your spouse/civil partner may receive less than you think. If you cohabit, the person you are living with may not get anything.

Very unlikely. A Will has to be prepared, signed and witnessed in a particular way to be valid.

You can say what you wish to happen to your property. You can make gifts of money, personal belongings, gifts to charity and appoint guardians of your young children. You can choose who you wish to be the Executors and Trustees and decide who inherits the rest of your estate.

Executors are the people named in your Will to carry out your instructions and administer your estate in accordance with the law.

Your Will should be kept under regular review by you, particularly if there is a change in your personal or financial circumstances, or you receive an inheritance. With a Rightwill we keep in touch with you every 2 years so you don’t need to worry. 

You should leave it in a safe place. At the Right Legal Group we take care of your Will and keep it  off site where it is safely secured & stored. Should anything happen to you, your executors will get the original.

This is a legal document giving power to Attorneys to manage your finances for you, if you are physically or mentally unable to do so. You need to be mentally capable at the time the LPA is given. The LPA will need registering with the Office of the Public Guardian prior to use.

This legal document enables healthcare decisions to be made on your behalf by the Attorneys, but only when you are unable to make such decisions yourself. The LPA needs
registering with the Office of the Public Guardian before use.

Anyone over the age of 18 can make an LPA, provided that they have sufficient mental capacity to do so and understand and agree the content of the LPA.

It may be difficult managing your finances in the future, if you are physically or mentally unable to do so, e.g. it may not be possible to pay your bills or sell your house. If you were not able to make healthcare decisions yourself (e.g. medical treatment or where you should live) then you may wish to choose who makes these decisions on your behalf.
