When you've been working in the financial sector as long as we have, you welcome any regulation ๐Ÿค“! 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 โญ 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 ๐Ÿ˜Š #estateplanning #postnup #legalservices #familylaw #partners #CarsonHughes (always love a zoology dictionary example)

When should you revisit your Will? If you become international ๐Ÿ˜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 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป #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 โค in England and Wales this act invalidates your Will completely!

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

Searching for a loved one's Will after they've passed away can be hard. Going through their private documents, searching through their home, not always sure there is a Will to actually be found ๐Ÿ˜ฌ We offer a fantastic document storage solution with our partners at National Will Safe Limited. As part of the service, the Will is recorded on the National Will register to confirm it does exist and where it can be retrieved from #nationalwillsafe #whereevenneedlescanthide #keepitsafe #askushow #storage #documentstorage #Wills #CarsonHughes

Research form our partners at Golden Charter Later Life Planning showed that 47% of people asked agreed that COVID19 has encouraged them to talk about their funeral wishes. Do your loved ones know your wishes? Either way, a Golden Charter funeral plan enables people to record their wishes, prepay and fix their costs, and know who will be supporting their family when the time comes - however many years away that might be #GoldenCharter #peaceofmind #makeyourwishesknown #itsgoodtotalk #talktous #getintouch #CarsonHughes

Every sibling relationship is different, whether they drive you round the bend or are your best friend, often whether they are half sibling or full doesn't matter. But with intestacy law (the path your estate will follow without a valid Will) half siblings feature only after full blood siblings. So a half sibling would only inherit if there were no living full blood sibling or surviving children there of. If this wouldn't suit your wishes then #getintouch #writeyourWill #familymatters #Wills #EstatePlanning #ifyoudontdecidethelawwill #CarsonHughes
