Wills & Lasting Power of Attorney
BACK to FAMILY LAW, WILLS & PROBATE
Drawing up a will may not be on everyone’s priority list. However, there are reasons why it should be. Having a well-drafted will minimises the chances of a family dispute after your passing, gives effect to your intentions in relation to who to benefit from which assets and protects your beneficiaries’ interests. At Beacon, we do not believe in adopting a cookie-cutter approach to drafting a will, as each individual’s concerns is unique. As such, we put considerable thought into drafting every clause in your will to ensure the smooth transfer of your assets in accordance with your wishes.
Further, if you have experienced a change in your life such that your original will no longer reflects your current intentions, we can help you tailor your new will to address your fresh concerns.
In addition, we help you protect your own interests in the event your mental capacity is lost by helping you draft a lasting power of attorney whereby someone you trust would be empowered to make decisions on your behalf. In the event a family member loses his or her mental capacity, we can help you apply to Court for the appointment of a deputy under the Mental Capacity Act (Cap. 177A) to look after his or her affairs.
