5 Factors

The final factor we're looking at this week for factors that influence people when choosing a Will Writer is how easy it is to complete the process with them.
Just because estate planning is incredibly important, and a fairly serious affair, doesn't mean it has to be complicated. A good drafts person might sweat over the text books looking for the right clause but the customer shouldn't feel that complexity, that's our job!
Contactable daytimes, evenings, weekends, face to face, over the phone even on zoom (😬) I promise it is easier than you think #Getintouch #askushow #readourtestimonials #easypeasy #haveagreatweekend #CarsonHughes #5factors

5 Factors

Another key factor that influences people when deciding who to trust with their estate planning is how friendly and helpful they are 😁
We've all heard the phrase "people buy people" and it's something we should all keep in mind - and not just in business! First impressions and so important, and lasting impressions make or break a relationship. Check out our client feedback save story on Insta to decide if we strive to be a helpful friendly bunch πŸ˜‰ #peoplebuypeople #greatfirstimpressions #welovetobehelpful #CarsonHughes #5factors

5 factors

The next influencing factor when people decide who to instruct to write their Will is the experience and background of the Adviser.
This is really key, you wouldn't get a plumber to re-wire your house! But equally it's good to have breadth of experience to help look at estates from different points and stages, and understand different family set ups.
I have 19 years of financial services experience (😳) in day to day banking, customer service, lifetime estate planning, insurance, business planning and so on so I'm confident I can help #Getintouch #experience #feelingold #wouldntdoanythingelse #CarsonHughes

5 Factors

Continuing our look into what factors most influence people when choosing a Will Writer, and next is Service Quality.
This should be number 1 in an ideal world and it's certainly the one we focus on the most.
There is no single way of delivering the best quality of service - different clients have different standards, needs and demands. We focus on getting to know each of our clients and always hearing feedback to constantly improve and grow

This week we're talking about the factors that influence people when choosing their estate planner, and understandably Cost is king at number 1!
Legal work isn't cheap, but it shouldn't cost the earth either. We use clear pricing with all of our services, we quote and agree price before starting work so no hidden extras, we offer interest free Payment Spread Options to help make quality estate planning as obtainable as possible #Getintouch #obligationfreequotes #costisking #value #CarsonHughes #5factors

New year new offering!
2020 saw us expand our funeral wishes focus to be able to give our customers much more information, options and support. We tracked down places of rest of loved one's, arranged plot purchases and made connections to support wishes from eco-funerals to space send offs! Now we're focused on finding the best price - without compromising service, with the help of Dignity Funeral Plans

We're back from a wonderful Christmas break, feeling refreshed and ready. We find ourselves in Tier 4 now but our work means we are classed as keyworkers. We are of course fully set up and would prefer to work over the phone at the moment but if you are keen to get things in place, we are ready and happy to help either way so don't hesitate to get in touch #openforbusiness #heretohelp #Getintouch #stilltimetomakeastart #CarsonHughes

After today we are closed for Christmas until 28th December. We have decided not to send cards this year, which we normally love to do, and hope to return to next year. We have donated to @crisis_uk instead as while we plan estates for people with some, we also want to support those with none. We wish you all a very safe and wonderful Christmas #merrychristmas #closedforchristmas #staysafe #CarsonHughes

If your life insurance policy isn't in trust it could take as long as probate for the funds to be released (months) which could leave your loved ones struggling financially in the mean time. It would also be subject to inheritance tax! We can help, we work with all the major providers to help prepare your Trust documents for you. If you let our incredible Financial Advisers arrange the policy for you then all the work is free of charge πŸ˜€ #estateplanning #Trusts #lifeinsurance #makingitsimple #wecanhelp #morethanjustWills #CarsonHughes

(I know we've used this meme before but I love it!)
Did you know if someone administers an estate as if there was no Will, but then a Will turns up that person could be help personally liable!! Does your family know where you're Will is stored?....do you? #keepitsafe #alostWillisthesameasnoWill #NationalWillSafe #documentstorage #Will #CarsonHughes

As of today we're back in lockdown, it has been lovely getting back out to see clients but for the next month we're back to phone instructions only. However, we have had confirmation that documentation witnessing is a key activity so will still be able to do this in person where video witnessing isn't viable #wearestillhere #herewhenyouneedus #getintouch #lockdown2 #Wills #estateplanning #CarsonHughes

It seems like a lot of people are in the process of moving house at the moment (including me!) The housing market is spinning! And there's so many things to remember; utility companies, redirect mail, update you Will writer πŸ˜‰ but what about reviewing your life insurance πŸ€” do you have enough cover for a bigger mortgage? Or too much cover if downsizing? Get in touch if you'd like to review #lifeinsurance #homeinsurance #estateplanning #dontforgettoreview #getintouch #morethanjustwills #CarsonHughes

When you've been working in the financial sector as long as we have, you welcome any regulation πŸ€“! So we're thrilled to hear that further legislation will be in Parliament over next couple of months to strengthen the regulating of the pre-paid funeral market, it's just not an area people can be let down in #regulation #prepaidplans #funeralplans #laterlifeplanning #estateplanning #CarsonHughes

One of our favourite partners is Emily, she is an amazing family lawyer ⭐ during our catch up today we were talking about how a post nuptial agreement can be such an incredible supporting document to a Will! If you have children from a previous relationship as well as a current spouse/partner/new family, supporting your wishes in life and death documents gives extra peace of mind that plans will be followed 😊 #estateplanning #postnup #legalservices #familylaw #partners #CarsonHughes (always love a zoology dictionary example)

When should you revisit your Will? If you become international πŸ˜ƒ whether you invest in land or property abroad, or move abroad temporarily you should update your Will and get advice from your drafts person. Also if you are a non UK resident but own any asset in the UK you should also have a UK Will- and Lasting Power of Attorney too πŸ‘πŸ» #reviewyourWillregularly #freeWillreviews #Getintouch #jetset #secondhome #travels #international #Estateplanning #CarsonHughes

When should you revisit your Will? If you lose someone who was mentioned in your Will then it's a good idea to check your plans. A good Will is written with layers to maintain flow even if someone pre-deceases. Also re-visit if a relationship has ended, or trust has dwindled. Or if you've gifted/sold/lost an asset during lifetime that was mentioned in your Will #reviewyourWillregularly #freeWillreviews #Getintouch #loss #lost #gone #CarsonHughes

When should you revisit your Will? Every time you receive/buy/inherit a significant asset. A house purchase needs estate planning, jewellery gifting in Wills saves a great deal of tension and possible fall outs after death. And heirlooms and art work could be planned better in trusts #reviewyourWillregularly #freeWillreviews #Getintouch #newassets #Estateplanning #assets #CarsonHughes

When should you revisit your Will? Anytime your family grows - in any direction! Whether it's listing a new sentimental gift or family heirloom to your new born baby, or stating who is best to look after your fussy ferret if it out lives you, it needs to be clear in you Will to hopefully avoid being homeless #reviewyourWillregularly #freeWillreviews #Getintouch #newfamily #newadditions #petsneedplanningtoo #growinghousehold #CarsonHughes

When should you revisit your Will? Definitely if you enter a new marriage or civil partnership ❀ in England and Wales this act invalidates your Will completely! In Scotland it doesn't at all - but it changes who has a Legal Right to a claim on your estate dramatically #reviewyourWillregularly #freeWillreviews #Getintouch #marriage #civilpartnership #love #England #Wales #Scotland #CarsonHughes

I've been asked a lot over the last few months if now is a good time to look at life insurance. Well if you don't have existing life insurance then it's always a good time! Insurance companies have not put prices up due to COVID, nor have they listed it as an exclusion. So please get in touch for more info, I work with a brilliant bunch of independent advisors who I've known and recommended for years #lifeinsurance #lifeinsurancequotes #partners #estateplanning #getintouch #CarsonHughes

Stats released during last week's Remember a Charity Week by Co-op confirmed a huge jump in the number of Wills written to include a charitable legacy. The Cancer charities hold top spot for the 3rd year in a row as most mentioned, but community spirit is on the rise - no doubt fuelled by these lockdown times, with a lot of local and community causes being named over their larger national counterparts #PassOnSomethingWonderful #supportlocal #chritablegiftsinWills #thegiftofgiving #rememberacharity #CarsonHughes
