Murray Little & Knox - Wills & Powers of Attorney
Wills and Powers of Attorney
What is to happen to your assets on your death is not at the top of most of our “to do” lists but it should be. Appointing executors and clearly setting out your wishes gives you the comfort of knowing that your estate will go to those you choose and guides your family and loved ones about your wishes at what will be a difficult time for them.
Please contact Norman Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org or Frances Campbell at email@example.com to discuss your requirements and to guide you through the process of putting a Will in place.
Powers of Attorney and Guardianships
We are all living longer and more complicated lives. It is important to think about who will manage your affairs if you can’t, whether temporarily or because of long term incapacity. A Power of Attorney appoints your chosen person to do that for you and is a vital part of sensible forward planning. Financial institutions, hospitals and others all now want to see a proper appointment of someone to assist if you need it and this is what a Power of Attorney does. Norman Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org or Frances Campbell at email@example.com will be happy to discuss your requirements and guide you through the process of putting a Power of Attorney in place.
Where someone has lost capacity but has not made provision for this with a Power of Attorney further steps may be needed including appointment of a Guardian through the Court.
Please contact Norman Johnston at firstname.lastname@example.org or Frances Campbell at email@example.com for advice about what this may mean for you.
