10) Keeping your Will safe and Legal Planning up to date….
As an integral part of our own Estate Planning process for clients, our sister company Will Custodian Ltd works with us to offer a simple and inexpensive way of keeping your Last Will safe, and helps you to keep your legal planning up to date as life, tax and laws change.
For most people, those changes pass unnoticed, and sometimes result in the total loss of inheritance to family members, or the total loss of control of the family over a members life can be devastating. And with ongoing advice, totally avoidable.
That is why we set up the Peace of Mind Service with Will Custodian Ltd (they provide the mechanics and storage, we provide the advice.)
We get calls every day from people who have lost out because their parents or other half failed to get advice when it was needed. With the Peace of Mind Service that advice is readily available and in most cases there is no extra charge. Where amendments or detailed advice are necessary, there is a substantial discount on the cost.
Members also receive:
- Free copies of documents which we have created and have in secure storage.
- Free checks that documents appear to have been signed correctly.
- Free laminated storage certificates so the relevant folk know where things are and how to get them when they are needed.
- Annual Newsletter and Checklist as a simple way of keeping up to date and reviewing things – if in doubt then:
- Free Helpline – contact us for advice.
- Free initial Inheritance Tax Review with our highly qualified tax solicitor.
- More complex estate planning matters such as Trusts and Business Succession Planning can be a part of the Peace of Mind Service with costs depending on the level of service you require.
It is a simple service which keeps costs down but means that your Estate Planning is likely to stay on track and achieve what you want from it, which is usually to make sure that your family benefit from your lifetimes hard work, and that you are fully protected as far as the law allows from having your life taken over by Social Services.
