FAQs
Frequently asked questions
questions
Here are our top four FAQs:

What happens if I do not make a Will?

If you die without a Will in place, the rules of intestacy will apply. This will mean that your estate will be distributed according to a strict order depending on the value of your estate and which family members survive you. This may mean that your assets end up passing to people who you’d prefer not to inherit from you. If you are unmarried, your partner may not inherit anything from you without a Will in place.

Where do you store your client's Wills?

We use a fully managed, professionally converted ex-military site that is protected against flood, fire and other risks, giving you complete peace of mind regarding the security of your documents. The facility meets the highest conservation standards as laid down in BS 4971:2017, and is in vaults 100 feet underground, offering a naturally safe and secure environment.

What is an LPA?

A lasting power of attorney (also known as an LPA) is a legal document that empowers you to designate one or more individuals, referred to as attorneys, to make decisions on your behalf during your lifetime. Although separate from your Will, many people choose to establish a lasting power of attorney at the same time as creating their Will as part of future planning.

What is the difference between probate and estate administration?

Probate provides the Executor (if there is a Will) or Administrator (if there is no Will) with the legal right to carry out estate administration. Therefore, probate is just one part of the wider process, and it gives the authority to deal with property, money, and personal possessions. Probate may not be required on every estate; however, estate administration is required after every death.
