Protecting your wealth

Some basic facts

Everyone should have a will, but two out of three people have not yet made a will and those who have, may not have the correct will in place.

An estimated 70,000 people each year have to sell their homes to pay for care.

A large proportion of any inheritance can be lost in future divorce settlements, to creditors or bankruptcy, and in unnecessary taxation.

If you own a business or a share of a business then your spouse / partner and children may not inherit your share of the business.
