In the know...

It is a fact: many people dread the thought of making a Will and have a great reluctance to come to a decision as to how they would like their possessions to be distributed when they pass away. Nearly 70% of the population eligible to make a Will, do not have one.

There is a commonly held belief that if you die without a Will (intestate), then all your assets simply pass on to your spouse. This is not true and you need to read our section on dying without a Will. Dying intestate generally will mean your assets will not be distributed as you probably wished to. Needless to say the amount of delay, grief and distress this sometimes causes to those who you leave behind. On a tax point of view, dying intestate often results in far greater tax than is necessary. The moral is to draw up a Will now and don’t leave your loved ones to pick up the pieces.

Five good reasons to make a Will

It’s all too easy to put off making a Will but the difficulty is that we never know when it may be needed. Experience shows that families who don’t plan ahead to cope with death or illness suffer higher levels of stress, expense and delay compared to families with the right legal and financial protection in place. Making a Will can give you peace of mind that your loved ones are protected.

  1. You decide who inherits – not the Government!
  2. Choose people you trust to act as your Executors
  3. Appoint Guardians to look after young children
  4. Avoid unnecessary exposure to Inheritance Tax
  5. Have peace of mind and reduce the potential for family conflict

We would have no hesitation in recommending Shandip, to assist with your Wills and Power of Attorneys.

He was calm, kind, friendly, sensitive and efficient, which was much appreciated by us and he made the whole process effortless.

We had delayed doing our Wills and POA’s for years and years, continually be told by friends we needed to get them sorted and had we known of Shandip, we would certainly have done them much sooner.

Don’t delay!

S & G – Harrow, London, Very Efficient & Prompt in the Execution Process and Explanations

Shandip Shah of Balance Consultancy, was referred to me by my accountant and I found the service Shandip provided with diligence and care, very comforting. He was very informative about the whole process of the “will writing” and flexible in his approach. This made it very easy for me to get this “legal” formality covered in no time at all. Something that I had been putting off for the last few years. Thank you for your efficiency and professionalism Shandip.

We have been very happy with the professionalism and operation of the Balance Consultancy in dealing with the production of Lasting Powers of Attorney for the two of us – a very smooth process from initial discussions in our own home to shepherding them through the Office of the Public Guardian and delivering them to us when certified. Thanks due to Mr. Shandip Shah.
