Making a Will is one of the most important things you will do in your lifetime. It caters for far more than just who will benefit from your belongings (your estate).
Writing a will is one of the most important things you will ever do. If you do not have a valid will, your property and belongings (your estate) will be distributed according to the Laws of Intestacy. If this happens, it will be unlikely to follow your wishes, and it will prove very costly and take longer than if there were a valid will in place.
We offer many types of trusts. Family Protection trusts will ensure your estate ultimately passes to your family. Disabled Trusts ensure long term financial provision for a disabled child or relative and a Property Trust severs the tenancy of a property.
Lasting Powers of Attorney serve to meet the needs of those who can see a time ahead when they will not be able, (will lack capacity) to look after their own personal and financial affairs. This allows them to make appropriate arrangements for family members or trusted friends to be authorised to make decisions on their behalf.
Unlike saving for your funeral, you wouldn’t have to worry about your family needing access to your savings account before the funeral can be paid for. When the time comes, one call to your selected funeral director will activate your plan, relieving your family of the stress of organising funds and making detailed arrangements.
A contract is a legal agreement entered into by two or more parties. This might be in the form of a loan agreement or a service agreement, where the contractual obligation exists to provide a professional service to the other party or parties.
County Estates & Wills are proud to offer contractual agreements. These are legally binding, official documents which will give you complete peace of mind. Let us take care of your legal needs.
The benefits of using such facility means that basic future amendments will be free of charge. These will include the change of address or the change of executor, or the removal of a beneficiary for example.
A will is a legal document where a person, names one or more persons to manage his or her affairs and estate. In “olden” times, a Will referred to property, and a Testament referred to personal property, hence the term now used “Last Will and Testament”.
If someone dies without making a will, they are said to have died “intestate”. If this happens, the law sets out who should deal with the deceased’s affairs and who should inherit their estate (property, personal possessions and money).
