Experienced in helping with complex situations

Sometimes people's circumstances are a little more complex, and they need additional trusts to help address a particular issue. Speak to your consultant if you feel it may be beneficial to add one of the following trusts to your Will:

LIFE INTEREST 

Allows you to protect the capital of any property, cash assets and other investments for your ultimate beneficiaries, such as your children, whilst giving the income to your spouse or partner for life.

PROPERTY PROTECTION

Allows your spouse or a partner to continue living in, or have a beneficial use of your property (or a share of it) for life, whilst ultimately keeping it safe for someone else such as your children.

Providing for children from a previous relationship

RESIDENCY

Allows someone such as your partner to continue living in your solely owned property, either for life or for a period of time, whilst ultimately keeping it safe for someone else such as your children.

DISCRETIONARY

Allows you to leave assets for the benefit of a vulnerable beneficiary (e.g. someone with a learning disability) to be held by trustees who can then protect the beneficiary from being taken advantage of.

Ensuring your partner can stay in your property until their death

Lasting Powers of Attorney

Many people assume that their spouse, partner or child would be able to automatically take over their affairs if they became ill or lost the ability to make their own decisions. This is simply not the case.

LPAs allow you to legally appoint someone you know and trust to make decisions and act on your behalf should you be come unable to do so for yourself, due to illness, accident, stroke or dementia.

This may range from your day-to-day care, e.g. diet and daily routine to medical treatment and end of life decisions. It can only be used when you are unable to make your own decisions.

This document allows your Attorney to make decisions and act on your behalf with regards to your property and financial affairs.
