Potter & Co’s new website
We are really pleased to launch our new website.
As well as adding more information on our services, we have re-organised the content in order to make the site easier to use for both businesses and individuals.
Easier to use
One way we have set out to make the site easier to use is by separating the content into ‘Services for individuals’ (conveyancing, wills, trusts etc.) and ‘Services for businesses’ (Commercial Property, Company Commercial, licenses etc.).
Blog and newsletter
We have also added a blog (which you are now reading!) which will make the site easy to update with news and any future events.
At the bottom of each page, you’ll also see a ‘Subscribe to newsletter’ link which will allows users to keep up to date with firm news, legal developments and special offers.
Many people assume that when they die, all their property and assets will automatically go to their partner, wife or husband.
However, this is not always the case. There are also other issues to decide on such as who will be guardian to your children and who will deal with the assets of your estate.
We have listed some of the reasons why it is worth taking the time to prepare a will:
- If you die without making a Will, someone else will decide how to distribute your assets and in some cases, they will go to the state.
- If you are unmarried, your partner might not receive any of your estate (or automatically gain guardianship of your children)
- If you have separated,your spouse may still be entitled to part of your estate
- By making a will, you can limit the amount of Tax payable on your death
- If you have children under 18, you can specify who you wish to be the guardians of your children.
- If you have married, any previous will is revoked and becomes invalid.
- If you become mentally or physically incapacitated, accounts in your sole name will be frozen, and there will be a delay and cost involved in gaining access to them.
