Future Planning, Wills & Power of Attorney in Scotland

Caritas Legal specialise in Future Planning

We strongly advocate that our clients consider a three pronged approach:-

• Set up a Power of Attorney as clients are often shocked to discover that your next of kin is powerless without Power of Attorney;
• Have a Will prepared in order to ensure that your wishes are given effect to and that the administration of your estate is planned; and
• Obtain advice on protecting your home from care fees and in doing so seek to ensure that your children’s inheritance is protected.

As part of our commitment to Future Planning, we offer all clients a care fees liability analysis as part of their initial consultation.

Protect your Assets

We offer advice on the system for residential care in Scotland. In particular we advise clients how to best protect their assets should they require care in the future.

Powers of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is a legal document whereby an individual appoints someone as their Attorney, to make decisions and act on their behalf either immediately or at some point in the future. 

Wills and Trusts

No matter how much or how little money you have it is important that you leave a Will which states where you want your money to go. Without a Will your estate will be distributed according to the law of intestacy and as a result people who you would like to benefit may not.
