Making a will is highly desirable as it enables your wishes to be carried out without complications after you have died. A well written Will ensures that:
• Your estate is distributed according to your specific instructions
• There will be less chance of family disagreements after you have died
• If you want to make a legacy to individuals or an organization you can be re-assured that your wishes will be respected.
• Any inheritance tax issues can be taken into account.
In common with many companies and charities in the field of elder care, time4care strongly recommends that legal advice is taken when writing a Will.
There are a number of formalities that need to be addressed including the appointment of executors. That is why t4c have built a close association with the specialist legal group Solicitors for the Elderly who are a grouping of law firms experienced in providing the best legal advice to the elderly and the infirm.
If necessary a lawyer may be able to visit you in your home or hospital when preparing your Will. Your Will can be drafted so that any claims against your estate which you have not anticipated can be avoided and any inheritance tax issues taken into account.
You may be able to pass on some parts of your estate before you die and time4care can advise on the benefits, risks and any financial implications.
