Estate Planning is ultimately the preparation of documents and mechanisms through which estates will be protected after death. The mechanisms to do this are numerous and extend to both Bloodline Planning, which is protecting the estate after death and Lifetime Planning which is protecting the estate during life in preparation for death.
On the Bloodline Planning side, we often deal with Will and Trusts, Deeds of Severance or Conveyance of properties or after death, we can assist with Probate and Deeds of Variations.
Looking at Lifetime Planning, there are a number of areas we can assist with. Inheritance Tax mitigation makes up a lot of what we do day to day, as well as setting up Care Home Planning techniques. Lasting Powers of Attorney are also a significant part of Lifetime Planning and a large percentage of our Estate Planning clients have created these – not only the older clients.
