Estate Planning

Take control and safeguard the future for you and your loved ones with our estate planning partner, Co-op Legal Services.

If you die without a valid Will, the law will decide who inherits everything you own. To make sure your assets go to those you care about it’s important to make a Will.

Co-op Legal Services specialises in helping people plan for the future. Their Estate Planners can advise you on a range of matters, from simple Wills to family trusts and everything in between.

As well as helping you to ensure your assets are passed on in accordance with your wishes, Co-op Legal Services can also help you to set up a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). An LPA allows you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions about your health and welfare and/or your property and finances, if you become unable to. Mental incapacity can affect people of all ages, and without an LPA no one can step in to manage your finances or make decisions about your medical care without a Court Order.

Co-op Legal Services would work with you to fully understand your needs, plans and wishes before finding the solution that’s right for you.

Estate Planners at Co-op Legal Services can guide you through the whole process and make bespoke recommendations that are tailored to your individual needs.
