Summary

Martin Wollaston of Wollaston Legal Estate Planning already provides legal estate solutions for people and companies throughout the north-west.

Over 70% of the population of the UK do not have a Will, or an appreciation of the versatility of a Will. Most people appreciate the sense it makes to clearly put into legal form their wishes when it comes to inheritance, but do not realise the risk to their homes if they should need long-term care later in life, and 1 in 4 of us will need long-term care. Without a valid Will in place, family assets are distributed in a way that is most unlikely to match the wishes of most people.

The problem is even greater if you run a company. Without clear direction of the directors' or proprietor's assets, protected by an appropriate and valid Will, the tax and ownership implications could be horrific for company, and often terminal!

In addition, I am responsible for Business Development in this area for Viva Costa International, the UK's leading provider for overseas mortgages and low-cost overseas properties. VCI also works in partnership with various SIPP providers, qualified pension experts and a panel of commercial property developers who are able to offer clients an alternative to traditional personal pensions. It is no secret that that the vast majority of personal and company pensions have drastically underperformed in the last decade. It is possible to transfer any personal or company pension into a SIPP and inject new life into these funds, particularly "frozen" funds.

We even provide advice and estate planning solutions for overseas property owners, the majority of whom are not aware of the risks of "double succession tax jeopardy".

Wollaston Legal Estate Planning has the expertise to provide solutions to these and many other legal estate problems, including Lasting Power of Attorney and foreign property ownership.
