The majority of couples hold their property in joint names as what is known as Beneficial Joint Tenants. Your Paralegal will be able to show you that for a relatively small investment in your Estate Planning you can Sever the Tenancy and become Tenants in Common, each owning half the property. This allows you to pass your half to your beneficiaries on your death, thus protecting it from loss to pay for care fees for your surviving spouse, for example. This work requires the additional service of Right of Occupation.
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.
