Wills and Powers of Attorney

Your will is one of the most important documents you will ever sign.

A well drafted will is essential to ensure that your wishes are recorded and can in fact be carried out in accordance with your intentions.

Enduring Powers of Attorney are often considered at the same time as Wills are prepared. They are a special form of document allowed under the Protection of Personal and Property Rights Act 1988. The Enduring Power of Attorney gives a power to some other person to do legal transactions in your name, even in circumstances where you would be unable to act yourself (eg in the event of incapacity).

Wills and Enduring Powers of Attorney are both powerful documents with considerable consequences that should be discussed with a legal advisor experienced in the field.
