MAKING A WILL
Making sure your wishes are carried out and making it easier on those left behind
Whether you are buying a house, starting a family, investing your money or setting up a pension for retirement, it is important to have a will in place to protect your assets and your loved ones, today and in the future.
Lloyds Bank partner, Hugh James Solicitors, offers you a Will Writing service that can assist you planning the future of your assets and will guide you through a whole range of questions that you should decide in life to ensure that you are prepared in any eventuality.
Benefits of having a Will
- Protect Your Home
If you own your main residence or other properties in your sole name, your next of kin may not automatically be entitled to inherit if you die without a will.
- Protect Your Assets
Specify who you want your assets to pass to and on what terms.
- Protect Your Partner
If you are not married or in a civil partnership, your partner may not be entitled to anything.
- Name Your Children’s Guardian
If you have children under the age of 18, you will need to appoint a legal guardian in the event both parents die. If you don’t, the decision could be left to the courts.
- Protect your Children
Ensure your children / stepchildren / foster children are provided for financially. You can consider setting up a Trust in your will, so wealth is used according to your wishes.
- Appoint an Executor / Trustee
Choose who will administer your estate after your death and ensure that your assets pass on to your beneficiaries. You can choose to appoint Lloyds Bank as a professional Executor / Trustee in your will.
- Inheritance Tax Considerations
Whilst your spouse or civil partner may inherit your estate tax free, your estate may be taxable for your children and grandchildren.
You need be a Lloyds Bank customer to access this service.
