Will Protection – Elderly Care & Protection
You can if you wish make a Living Will.
The following outline those treatments you do not wish to receive in the event of certain illnesses or an accident.
We will talk you through all your options, providing you with all the advice you need to make an informed decision.
Deeds of Variation
It is possible for the beneficiaries and the Personal Representatives of an Estate to effectively “rewrite” the will of the deceased by creating a legal document called a Deed of Variation. Consequently the estate of the deceased may be distributed in a more tax-effective way. It is necessary to make a variation within two years of the date of death.
Regan’s will be happy to discuss whether this is a suitable option for you.
Enduring Power of Attorney
You can also make provision for someone during your lifetime, by making an Enduring Power of Attorney. Under the Enduring Power of Attorney you can appoint one or more people you trust to manage your financial affairs and make welfare decisions for you at a time when you are most vulnerable. Your attorney could be a close relative, a trusted friend or your professional adviser. If you do not make an Enduring Power of Attorney and need assistance, someone will need to make an application to Court to act as your representative. This very often leads to conflict and can take a long time and prove costly. It is much wiser to anticipate this unlikely but possible event in your life’s journey
