Inheritance Tax Implications
WILLS/INHERITANCE – COHABITEES
New laws are currently being proposed to extend inheritance rules for unmarried partners who have lived together for a certain amount of time. If you have any issues on inheritance or if you are a disappointed beneficiary or you are worried about your position as a cohabitee, please do not hesitate to contact Del Cudd 01792 450010.
NO POWER OF ATTORNEY – DEPUTYSHIP
In the absence of a lasting power of attorney more and more deputyships will have to be applied for. Families ought to give serious consideration to whether or not they should appoint a professional deputy. If you have concerns about the capacity of any family members or need further advice on powers of attorney or deputyship, please contact Jonathan Cudd on 01792 450010.
