Description

When you ask Lowe and Co to help you make your will and Lasting Power of Attorney, we will look at your personal, individual needs. We are not a 'one size fits all' outfit. We offer a bespoke service.

Your Family is unique. We believe your Will needs to be unique as well. That's why we come to you, in your home if that's easier for you, and take detailed instructions.

Then, when we have written the will that is right for you, we come back and take you through it step by step. That way, you only sign it when you know you are making the right decisions for your family.

We can even keep the original for you, and remind you to have another look at it in ten years or so, just to make sure it still works for you and your family.

A will is a vital piece of Tax Planning – unless you really want the Chancellor of the Exchequer to spend your life savings...

If you have children, you probably know you need a will. It gives you the chance to appoint a guardian, someone you know you can trust, as well as the opportunity to take care of their financial future.

If you are cohabiting, did you know that your partner may be entitled to nothing after your death unless you explicitly leave your property to them under your will? If you die without a will, your partner could face losing the home you shared.

The holistic approach of Lowe and Co is invaluable when drawing up your will. This is your final chance to take care of those you love, your chance to decide “who gets what”. We are able to look at the whole picture and advise you on how to make the most of your assets to benefit whomsoever you choose.

A fixed fee service is available for simple wills. Please contact us for details.

What is ‘Probate’? Well, it’s actually two different but related things;
1 the legal process of administering the estate of a person who has died, and
2 the document that recognises the authority of properly appointed executors to deal with the assets in a person’s estate.

As a process, winding up an estate can be very complex and seem an unbearable burden at a time of grief. Lowe and Co are specialists in this area. We can ease the burden by providing an objective, compassionate person to guide you through the procedures necessary to resolve the affairs of the deceased. We can work alone or in conjunction with the executors or, if there is no Will, the family member tasked to sort things out.

Executors must comply with strict obligations and if they get it wrong, they may face financial penalties. We can help the executors comply with their responsibilities, thereby avoiding the financial penalties.

If there is no Will, we can help the relevant family member(s) to get to grips with the complexities of the intestacy rules. These are the rules which dictate how the deceased’s estate will be divided and who may benefit. The order of entitlement is totally inflexible; the rules were written over 80 years ago and they are based on an arcane model of a “traditional” Will. Friends or favourite charities cannot benefit because they do not come within the definition of “traditional family”. Who gets what depends on whether or not there is a surviving spouse and/or children.

Did you know, for example, that If someone is divorced with young children and they don’t have a valid will, it is their ex-spouse who will administer the estate on behalf of the children. They have to select someone to work with them but its their choice, not the deceased’s and it could be their new partner!
