Lodge Brothers legal services Sunbury

There comes a time in everyone’s life when there is a funeral to plan. What most people seldom think about, however, is that where there is a funeral, there is an associated requirement for funeral legal services Sunbury, which goes hand-in-hand with those related to funerals planning services. A unique and empathetic group of attorneys at Lodge Brothers legal services dedicate themselves to assisting families and individuals with the legal aspects involved in the end of life. Sad as it is to think that there is a requirement for such a service, it is probably one of the most important and practical aspects which need to be addressed, preferably while you as an individual, are still alive. Just like with funeral planning, end of life planning is without a doubt, one of the best things a person could do for the loved ones who will be left behind.

Funeral legal services Shepperton includes a cluster of specific services which one needs to attend to, to ease the burden on those left behind, and to ensure that there are no unexpected surprises awaiting them. These funeral legal services include the preparation and drawing up of a will, probate services, and powers of attorney.

Having a legal and binding will in place holds more importance than most people may expect, which is one of the reasons why so many people end up never quite getting to having theirs drawn up. One somehow always believes that there is time for these things. Meanwhile, we all know that no tomorrow is guaranteed. A legal will and testament will speak for you when you are no longer able to, whether it be because you are still on life-support, or if you have already passed away. Sometimes there is a need for you to tell others when it is time to let you go, in the event of a tragedy which leaves you unable to communicate for yourself any longer. Documents like DNR’s (Do not resuscitate) and organ donation instructions can help your family know what you would want them to do.

A person also has the option of appointing their attorney with the power of attorney to execute any and all final decisions and wishes intended by the individual. Doing so designates your attorney as sole executor of your property and finances. This can also apply to end of life decisions and actions which need to be taken, on your behalf if you are no longer able to.

Whether or not there is a will, the legal process of probate is required in order to administer the finalization of a person’s estate, whether according to the Will, if found to be legal, or in the event that there are instructions left behind. It becomes the responsibility of the court to decide who is rightfully entitled to your possessions. Lodge Brother Legal attorneys will professionally and legally administer your will, ensuring that your legal requests are carried out by the court and that your possessions are distributed as you intended them to be.

Having a Will means protecting your family’s future

Christmas time approaches and most families are planning their holidays or restful breaks which they intend to spend with friends and family.  Pain and sadness is magnified even more at Christmas time than it seems during the rest of the year. Although losing a loved one at any time of the year is always heart-breaking and a time of grief, there is something about a loss at Christmas time that seems to be that much more devastating.  Lodge Brothers have had the honour of assisting families with their loss and grief at this time of year for many years and so we are heightened to the fact that losing a loved one at this time is simply heart-wrenching. Even more so when faced with the death of a young person or someone with a young family. During this time traditionally filled with laughter and joy, some families are quietened by the blanket of grief and uncertainty when a loved on passes. Lodge Brothers funeral directors are permanently on call when the unexpected happens and the festive season is no exception.

For those families afflicted by death during the festive season, however, “good will” is not the only will that they may be faced with. You may also need to consider your own Will. It is our wish to you this Christmas time to remember that it is sadly no only older folk who pass away and that those with young families are generally the most unprepared when it comes to having a will in place in case of their unforeseen passing. It is the family members left behind that have to most to lose when a parent fails to plan for the unexpected event of their own passing. The sad truth is that Lodge Brothers Legal Services Addlestone Wills, have seen many instances where a family has suffered as the result of parents not preparing Wills or equally as detrimental, preparing of a Will that is not correctly administered. Ascot Wills and Ashford Wills Legal Services assist clients with the correct and legal preparation of a valid Will.

Dont let your family become one which contributes to the Will statistics which show that 70% of people over 18 do not have their own Will in place. Complications which arise from this fact will weigh heavily on those left behind who will need to know how to deal with your estate as you would have wanted it to be dealt with. This is too large a task to leave to another who is already struggling with the burden of your loss and the logistics of dealing with a funeral. Especially at Christmas time, complications are made worse merely by the fact that it is that time of year and emotions and stress levels are already usually at peak levels. Look after your family in death as you would want to in life by taking care of the details that need to be taken care of and alleviating them of that added stress. It is the best gift that you could possibly give to your family this Christmas season.

Our Legal Services division was set up with the goal of providing our customers help with probate, wills and lasting power of attorneys all of which can be difficult aspects to deal with before, during and after a loved one passes.

Lodge Brothers understand the importance of being prepared for any eventuality. While many hope that when it comes time for their passing that this time will not end up being a time of great stress for our families. Losing someone close to you is difficult under any circumstances but when it comes to certain aspects, its always good to know that contingencies are in place prior to the event thereby alleviating any undue stress and anxiety when the time comes.

Lodge Brothers: help in troubled times

Lodge Brothers funeral services is always here to help. We know how unpredictable life can be on a daily basis and that things happen when you least expect it. This is why we make ourselves available at any time on any day, by phone or email. With 533,253 deaths in Wales and the UK in 2017. The office of National statistics shows that the provisional number of deaths registered in England and Wales in the week ending 31 August 2018 was 7,865. Yourmoney.com reports that “Around 60% of UK adults still haven’t made a will, according to new research from Unbiased.co.uk, leaving around 31 million people at risk of dying intestate. If you die without a will your estate will be distributed solely according to intestacy law, which may not reflect your wishes.”

Karen Barrett, CEO and founder of Unbiased, said “It’s clear that many people think they’re just not ‘rich enough’ to need a will. This ignores the fact that a will makes inheritance a far quicker process – do they really want to keep their loved ones waiting longer, when that money might be badly needed? It also doesn’t take into account the complexity of modern families, which intestacy law simply doesn’t address. Children from previous marriages could end up receiving nothing at all.”

At Lodge Brothers, we agree that this is the essential issue surrounding those who pass away without a will and encourage customers who we meet on a daily basis, not to find themselves in the same position as their loved ones who have gone before them. The financial consequences when a loved one dies affects the whole family and especially when there is a young family involved, this can have lasting and irreversible long-lasting effects on the family unit and extended family members. While you may not feel that you are rich enough to have a will, consider what the effects would be on your family should they have to love just one month or one week if you are a weekly paid individual.

At Lodge Brothers we have options to suit every pocket and take pride in extending a helping hand to our hundreds of clients in our local areas. You can find our offices in your local areas simply by visiting our website and searching by location. You will find that we have offices in all locations and we offer additional probate services.
