Most of us put off making a will for as long as we can, but without one you won't have any say in who inherits after you die. Sorting out your will doesn't have to be expensive or complicated, and once it's done it will be a huge weight off your mind.

Drawn up correctly, your will can include:

Who should receive your personal items, investments and property
Who you would like to act as the guardian of your children
Measures to reduce the potential inheritance tax bills
Legacies to your favourite charity and details of who should look after your pets

And what if you don't die but have an accident or become so ill that you're unable to run your own affairs?

We strongly recommend that all our clients consider a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA).

Without this document you won't have control over who manages your affairs if you're not able to (see our Links page for the Public Guardian's website for more information).

At FPW, in conjunction with legal specialists, we can provide expert guidance in this often complex area to help ensure that your wishes will be carried out.

Not all of the services we offer in relation to Wills and Tax planning are regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
