Rights of Occupation allow you to ensure that loved ones are able to remain in your property after your death, even though they may not be the ultimate beneficiary. This is useful in the instance of a remarriage, where you leave your property to your children but wish for your new spouse to be able to remain living in it, or to protect a child who is still living at home.
Rights of Occupation can be put in place for whatever duration you choose – whether it be a set amount of time, indefinitely, or under certain conditions such as until remarriage or cohabitation.
Our fee for each Right of Occupation is £295 but can be reduced by up to 50% if taken with one of our Estate Protection packages.
To support causes close to our hearts, 5 years ago we decided that we would no longer charge for writing Wills, instead asking clients to make a recommended donation of £40 to charity. We were so confident that people would be happy with our Will-Writing service that we believed they would come back in the future for other legal services, at which point we could charge our usual fees. This has proved true, and over 63% of clients do come back for further advice.
We are proud to have raised over £2,000.000 in upfront donations, supporting fantastic causes up and down the country.
