FAQ's

That’s brilliant! However a will is a legally binding document that directs where your assets must go, who will benefit and who will execute your estate. The problem is accessing and locating the details needed, that can assist people who need to deal with the many aspects of life admin after a death. How would someone locate your will, get into your house, find the relevant important paperwork and know all the minor details in order to execute that will? This is where practical end of life planning supports the drafting of a will or estate plan.

Estate planning is about creating formal, structured plans for what should happen to your assets, liabilities and responsibilities. Our services help you gather the life details that often only you know about, that can help others with estate administration after your death.

The sessions are held virtually via Zoom or via telephone call. Each session lasts 60 minutes. We are flexible and can offer the sessions at a time to suit your circumstances. This service is based in the UK.

As much or as little as you want. Everyone is at a different stage of their life planning journey. Some may have never considered their own mortality or it may be a subject you are open with discussing already. The sessions are relaxed yet structured to make sure we understand your needs, identify what arrangements and plans you need to put in place and create a simple action plan to help you with your life organisation and legacy planning.

In each session, we will be working through a process to ensure we cover all aspects of your practical life – now and for the future. We will consider the practical tasks you can start working on now, as well as agree key actions at the end of each session. It is then up to you how much you implement and prepare in-between each session.

We recommend having sessions roughly 1-2 weeks apart. This is to ensure that we do not lose momentum when you get into planning mode! There will be times however where you may wish to bring sessions closer together or spread them further apart. This process is about YOU – so we will work at whatever speed and pace you are comfortable with.

Life is a journey….you never know what is around the corner. It is much better to have the conversation when you are in good health. It will be an emotional challenge if these conversations have to take place in the absolute final stages of someone’s life. It is much better to spend the final days, weeks or months of someone’s life enjoying those final precious moments  – rather than discussing life admin and rushing to make decisions and plans.

If you have ever had to deal with someone else’s life after a death, you will know the heartache and stress that this places on the bereaved. Planning ahead now, is a wonderful future gift to your others. Making sure your wishes are clearly mapped out and known while you are healthy removes the need for the dreaded ‘I think that’s what they would have wanted…’ conversations.
