Your Local Will Writer in Wigan

All our Wills are individually drafted by legal executives. We do not use fill-in-the-blanks templates. Your Will expresses your own wishes and our professionals can advise you on ways to reduce the burden of inheritance tax.

Your Wishes

A will stands as the legal, written record of your wishes after your death. It is a legally binding document explaining how you wish to be buried, and how you would like to distribute your Estate. It’s gives you complete peace of mind knowing that your loved ones are taken care of, as you want.

Don’t Fall Prey To Intestacy                                                                              

Without a will, your estate is divided according to the rules of intestacy, and your wishes may not be carried out by the person who inherits – especially if you have step-children, who get nothing if you die without a will, and have no say in your burial or your estate under the law of intestacy. These days, it’s not unusual for families to fall out over a dead relative’s estate, and permanent damage is done to previously stable families by greedy relatives.

What are the difference between probate and estate administration

You might be aware of ‘probate’ but you may not have heard of the term ‘estate administration’. Although both are related to dealing with the deceased’s estate, they have different definitions and people often get the two confused.

Probate may be required when someone passes away. The umbrella term, ‘Grant of Representation’, refers to the ‘Grant of Probate’ or ‘Letters of Administration’ (if there is no Will) in England & Wales. This is called ‘Confirmation’ in Scotland. Probate is not always required. For example, assets that were held jointly will automatically pass to the surviving spouse.

Estate administration is the process of handling a person’s legal and tax affairs after they’ve died. This means dealing with their assets, debts, and taxes before distributing inheritance to the beneficiaries. As each estate is unique, it’s difficult to predict exactly how long the process will take. We advise that it should be expected to take several months.

To sum up the difference between probate and estate administration: probate is just one part of the wider process, providing you with the legal right to move forward with estate administration. Although probate is not always required, estate administration must always be carried out, no matter the estate’s value.

Obtaining probate and carrying out estate administration can often be complex and time-consuming, adding stress at a time that is already difficult for those who are grieving. Many choose to appoint a professional to act on their behalf

The Importance of having a Will and Lasting Power of Attorney

Wife of PC locked in a coma fights in the court to let him go

After 22 years of marriage Mrs Briggs finds herself  making the last act of love to her husband Paul Briggs.Mr Briggs a police officer had been in a coma for 18 months after her was knocked off his motor bike.He had shown no sign of regaining full consciousness, his intellect and his emotions trapped in an unreachable shadowland

To condense the case and to highlight the need for having a will and  granting lasting powers of attorney .. His wife has just won a heartbreaking legal battle against the NHS doctors and Government Lawyers.They believed in the sanctity of Mr Briggs life, whilst his wife insisted that he would want to die

While the case of Briggs versus Briggs is one family’s tragedy, it is now the crux of a national argument about who speaks for someone when they cannot: their family or the state

Mr Briggs official diagnosis is that he is “minimally conscious”. Doctors believed at best he may one day become conscious enough to know pleasure and pain- Mr Briggs family argued that this was semantic and that Mr Briggs will never attain any kind of life he would have considered worth living prior to his accident

The case brought by Mrs Briggs was heard in the Court of Protection – a court dedicated to mental health cases which has the same authority as the High Court . Usually doctors seek the court order which permits a coma victim to die. Since Mr Briggs NHS care team refused Mrs Briggs brought her own action which the Trust opposed

It was described by the judge as “a central clash of principles” in human terms, it was also a life and death fight between husband and wife, with Mr Briggs represented by the  Official Solicitor, the Government Lawyer who acts for people who are unable to act for themselves.

If there had been a document, a statement of his wishes, Mr Briggs death would have been non negotiable, but he didn’t have one so you would assume that that his wife would be able to speak for her husband and be their voice, its shocking to find that they are not.

Crucially in this case Mrs Briggs was clear about her husband wishes even though they were not documented and codified. As a police traffic officer he had experienced horrific accidents, decapitations, serious burns , the dead and more chillingly victims who ended up with devastinging brain damage.His thoughts  was that in those situations it would have been kinder if they had just died at the scene

In summary to this sad case judgement was delivered in December 2016 when the Judge agreed that given Mr Briggs current condition and bleak prognosis Mr Briggs was allowed to die leaving Mrs Briggs to make this her last act of love towards her husband.

What Mrs Briggs hopes for anything: it is that more people will write living wills setting out their wishes should they be like her husband unable to express them.She has found out in the most painful way possible that “next of kin” has no meaning in this context

Educating carers about the benefits of an LPA

Over three-quarters of carers may not be aware of the benefits of an Lasting Power of Attorney.

This is despite the drastic benefit it could have later down the line, providing the carer with the ability to act in the best interests of the person that they care for, should they lose capacity.

The two kinds of Lasting Power of Attorney are designed to deal with decisions relating to the differing aspects of someone’s life. It may be recommended that both the ‘Property and Financial Affairs’ and ‘Health and Welfare’ LPA are taken out in order to ensure consistency in regard to decision making.

The former can only be used by the attorneys when the person has lost capacity, in order to make the relevant decisions within a reasonable time in light of the circumstances. In contrast, the latter can be used by the attorneys at any time with the donors permission. It will also remain valid if the donor loses capacity, provided the individual has specified this.

As well as everyday decision making, the appointed carer will have the ability to carry out life changing decisions for the person who has lost capacity, including treatment and finances.  As well as enabling them to provide formal and practical support, an LPA can also provide a carer with confidence in the decisions that they make.

However, despite the benefits, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) are often dismissed by carers, on the basis that they’re complex or expensive. Given the serious powers than an LPA awards, drafting one does take a little time, but according to carers who have taken them out, this cost is more than outweighed by the benefit. The same applies to expense; the Office for the Public Guardian has lowered the cost of taking out an LPA, with an exemption available for those on lower incomes.

Commissioned by the Carer’s Trust, a recent survey by YouGov revealed that 82% of respondents had not made an LPA. This suggests a lack of awareness around the benefits of an LPA and the peace of mind it can bring to someone who simply wants decisions to be made in the best interests of a loved one.

Educating clients is essential when it comes to Lasting Powers of Attorney. Whilst the benefits of writing a will are often known, understanding around the benefits of an LPA may be less common.

Care Home Fees and Life Interest Trusts in Wills


Care Home Fees and Life Interest Trusts in Wills – England & Wales

WRITING a will is essential for EVERY adult no matter how old you are or how wealthy. But most people in the UK simply never get around to it.
With an aging population and an increased need for individuals to be cared for in residential and nursing homes has led to an increase in care home fees with the average resident paying £26,000 per year.

The Local Authority (LA) throughout England & Wales are responsible for covering the full cost of residential care for those with capital assets below £14,250. For those with assets valued between £14,250 and £23,250 the Local Authority will make a contribution. However, Local Authorities will not assist with care home fees in circumstances where an individual has capital assets over £23,250.

The high value of the homes of most couples/civil partners in England and Wales mean that their capital assets far exceed the Local Authority threshold and therefore they will be liable to pay care home fees in full.

We have made the process of planning for care home fees now easy to provide  peace of mind for the future and ensure you still have something to pass on

Including a Life Interest Trust in a Will

One solution is for married couples to include a Life Interest Trust in their Wills, in favour of the survivor on first death. This avoids the full impact of care home fees and to safeguard their children’s inheritance as far as possible. However, careful drafting is required if the Wills are to have the desired effect. Also, where, as is usually the case, the home is jointly owned, the type of ownership will need to be checked to ensure that the Wills will operate effectively.

In the UK there are two different ways in which property can be owned jointly, either as ‘joint tenants’ or as ‘tenants in common’. If a property is held as joint tenants this will mean on the first death of a couple the property will automatically pass to the survivor by survivorship regardless of what their Wills say. This means that the survivor will become the sole owner of the property and the Will Trust will be ineffective. As a result the full value of the property will be taken into account if the survivor subsequently has to go into care. However, in order to avoid this situation it is possible to ‘sever the joint tenancy’ to convert the joint ownership of property to what is known as a ‘tenants in common’ basis. This means that each of the joint owners can direct in their Wills as to how they wish their share in the property to be dealt with on first death. In this case it will pass into the Trust, as desired.

The survivor will be given a life interest in the half share of the property held in the Trust which will be created by the Will of the first of them to die with, typically, the share eventually passing down to their children after the survivor’s death. The terms of the Trust will allow the surviving partner to live in the property rent-free for the rest of their life. Importantly, based on current legislation, the LA cannot take into account the capital value of the half share of the property held by the Trust when assessing the survivor’s liability to pay care fees if they have to go into a home.

In essence this will protect the value of a half share of the property for the children. It will not, for example, be possible for the LA to challenge this arrangement on the basis that the survivor has ‘deliberately deprived themselves of assets’ to avoid paying care fees. This is for the simple reason that the survivor has not in fact given anything away but has simply received a ‘trust interest’ rather than an absolute interest under their spouse’s Will.

Considerations

If a person can no longer afford to pay for their care then the LA will be required to take over funding. This could mean that this individual is moved into a less expensive care home which they do not like.

If both spouses/civil partners require care during their life times then a Will Trust offers no protection against care home fees because the Trust does not come into effect until the first of the couple dies. However, this is a rare occurrence and the writer has only encountered it once in practice. This is because while both spouses are still alive they are generally able to support each other, possibly with the help of care provided in the home.

There are important administrative and legal issues that need to be dealt with in setting up the Will Trust and we are able to assist with those.
