As society changes and we are all living longer, it has become more important for us to protect our interests - both for the here and now and also for the future. This provides more certainty for us as individuals as well as for our loved ones.
There are many ways in which we can do this to ensure that, no matter what happens, an individuals wishes are carried out and some of the heartache and stress for our loved ones is alleviated.
Many have the impression that making a Will or Power of Attorney is just for the elderly, which is certainly not the case. Sadly, many people encounter unexpected illness or a sudden accident and when this happens, that individual does not always have time to put a Will or Lasting Power of Attorney in place. It is important to have these legal documents available, regardless of age, as anything can happen at any time.
We always ask our clients: "what would happen if you, or a loved one, had an accident or a stroke? Who would deal with the family home, bills and bank accounts? Who would run the business or partnership?". Without an appropriate Power of Attorney in place, those you would chose to make decisions on your behalf and in your best interest, may not be able to do so. Don't wait until it is too late - act now.
