During the Christmas and New Year Celebrations many of us will have committed to a Resolution. Shed a few pounds and book a nice holiday will no doubt feature amongst the most popular. Perhaps it is time add one more resolution to the list “Planning for those we Love”. Whilst the subject of Wills and Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) does not have the attraction of a trip overseas it is something we all have a tendency to ignore leaving them for another day.
For many ignoring matters of this nature can have devastating consequences. It is wise on an annual basis to reflect on what plans you have in place and consider whether circumstances have changed. Divorce, remarriage and other family issues may impact on the plans you have made and as a result thought over changes might be necessary. For those with no plans it is wise to consider the threats and prioritise your plans accordingly. A Will and LPA enable you to make provision in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
