Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney

Making your Will is the only way you can control what happens to your hard earned assets when you die and creating Lasting Powers of Attorney is the only way you get a say in who gets to make decisions on your behalf if you no longer have capacity to do so yourself in your lifetime.

Both documents are essential to protect you and your family by ensuring that your affairs are in order and your wishes are followed should you lose capacity or on death.
