An Easy Guide to Estate Planning

Estate planning is important for anyone who wants to protect their assets and ensure a smooth handover to the next generation.

Practical planning tools to get started:  


A Will:

This is a legal document prepared by a Solicitor that describes how you would like your assets to be distributed after you pass away. It shows who gets what and helps prevent disagreements that may arise among your family. It’s an essential first step in any estate plan.


Power of Attorney:

This is a legal arrangement which appoints someone to look after your financial and or personal affairs if you can’t. Think of it as a trusted ally who manages your affairs when you are unable to do so. The person appointed is called your attorney, but it does not need to be a solicitor.
