Advances in medical care and healthier lifestyles mean we are all enjoying longer and more active lives. This makes it even more important to start planning early for your future. If you have a family, it is particularly important to give you the peace of mind that they will be well provided for in the future. It also allows you to make things as easy as possible for them when the time comes that you need their assistance. Hepburn Delaney’s specialist later life planning solicitors can support you with this process.
Having an up to date Will ensures that all the wealth you have worked hard to build up over your lifetime passes down to the next generation in the way you envisage. It allows you to protect your loved ones and secure their future when you are no longer here.
Part of your plan might include putting trusts in place to protect your assets or to protect beneficiaries who might be vulnerable. When used correctly, trusts can help you plan for inheritance tax and residential care fees, as well as safeguarding assets for future generations.
Lasting Powers of Attorney
Having Lasting Powers of Attorney in place will make matters much easier for your family when the time comes that you need their assistance. Without a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, if you become unable to deal with your own affairs, your family may have to go through a lengthy and expensive court process in order to be able to help you.
Inheritance Tax Planning
No doubt you will have worked long and hard during your lifetime to build up a nest egg to pass down to your future generations. The last thing you want is for a large portion of it to be paid in inheritance tax. Planning early for tax means that you can protect your wealth for the next generation in the most tax efficient way possible.

FROM THE BLOG
“From the very first contact with Sumaiya, I felt confident she was the right person to help us prepare our wills. At our first meeting she explained our options clearly and professionally answering all our questions and providing all the information we needed to make a decision on the best way to proceed. Subsequent communication was clear and timely, and she helped make the whole process very easy for us. We would have no hesitation in contacting Sumaiya for any future matters or recommending her to friends or family”
