Planning ahead – for reassurance in retirement and old age
Financial security in retirement's rarely something you can leave to chance - and many of our clients find it reassuring to use us as a 'family solicitor'. That role extends beyond drafting wills to the provision of clear and impartial advice on how best to provide for your own and your dependants' future.
That includes advice on Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax, in life and on death. It also includes advice, where appropriate, to secure children's inheritance, for example in the context of a second marriage or relationship. It may also involve drafting and setting up family trusts and powers of attorney so that your chosen representatives can make decisions and act for you if you become unable to do so.
We can also advise on the funding of residential nursing care. A question frequently on our clients' lips is: Can I protect my home if I need residential nursing care? Whilst this is a complex area, with careful planning we can in many instances help you achieve a high degree of asset protection, providing both security and peace of mind for the future.
