Wishing all our readers a happy and prosperous 2015.
It seems that a lot people have the tasks of sorting their Wills and finances as one of their New Year’s Resolutions. Wills are one of those important tasks, a bit like insurance, that you know you need to do but put off as you hope it won’t be needed for a while!
We’ve all heard stories about people who die before they finalise their Wills or say it was always something they were going to get around to and in our May 2014 newsletter we highlighted some famous people who died without making a Will; yet most people don’t hesitate to insure their possessions, their cars, their homes, so why put your family’s financial security as less important than your possessions and your home?
So if you have insured yourself with a Will already, have you considered if it needs to be reviewed? Have your circumstances changed? Have the circumstances of any of the parties to your Will changed? Does your Will do enough to protect your assets from your partner re-marrying after your death or the costs of long term care or the tax man?
Your Will may be up to date but have you protected yourself with a Lasting Power of Attorney, i.e. appointing someone to look after your financial and welfare affairs if you cannot look them yourself, even on a temporary basis.
So, don’t let it stay on your to-do-list, contact Cornerstone Wills so that we can assist you with these important tasks.
If you are happy with the experience you received from us and knowing what a difference completing your Will has made to you, your peace of mind and that of your family, then tell family, friends and colleagues to make it one of their New Year’s Resolutions too.
Remember we will give a voucher for any referrals we receive if the service is taken up.
