LEGAL SUPPORT

Minimise sources of conflict and protect important relationships

As part of our comprehensive approach to financial advice, we provide legal support by way of referral to a panel of selected solicitors. This allows our clients to rely on us for advice on virtually any financial concern or life event, and to feel at ease that we will have the advisory services and expertise to help see them through.

 

Connecting you with trusted legal advisers is just the beginning. We will work with you to ensure your planning around your legacy, family business and other affairs works in complement to your wealth, property ownership and/or investment planning. We take a comprehensive approach, because amid life’s twists and turns, it’s good to know support is there whenever you need it.

Wills, Trusts & Legacy Planning

Lasting Power of Attorney

WILLS, TRUSTS & LEGACY PLANNING

Expert advice and legacy planning tools built around your specific needs and wishes

We all want our assets to be well-protected throughout our lifetimes – for both day-to-day peace of mind and so that we may pass on the best possible inheritance to the next generation when the time comes. However, modern families are becoming ever more complex, and a Will alone might not be sufficient to adequately carry out your wishes. That’s where legacy planning comes in.

The Financial Options Group will help you put planning in place which will provide your loved ones the maximum benefit possible from the assets you have built. Together with our providers, we deliver comprehensive legacy planning options, such as Wills and Family Trusts; these are tailored to your individual circumstances to ensure that your wishes are fulfilled.

When you’re ready to move into your new home, avoid delays and stress by letting The Financial Options Group do the legwork for you. We work with a panel of conveyancing specialists to ensure your home move is as quick, straightforward and hassle-free as possible.

 

To guide and assist you through the entire conveyancing process, you will be assigned your own personal conveyancer. We’ll take the stress out of moving home, so you can get on with the unpacking…

LEGAL SUPPORT

Divorce & Dissolution of Civil Partnerships

You’ve come to a tough decision, and now you need to make a fresh start. We can provide you with guidance and legal assistance, helping you to begin your next chapter. Throughout your divorce or dissolution of civil partnership, we will ensure that you are provided with representation and jargon-free legal advice built around your individual needs. We take a pragmatic approach, focused on minimising stress and achieving the best possible outcome.

Business Lasting Power of Attorney

LASTING POWER OF ATTORNEY

Who would you trust to look after your affairs if you suffered a loss of capacity?

Without Lasting Powers of Attorney in place, decisions about your finances and healthcare become considerably more complicated.

Without LPAs in place, those closest to you do not have the right to make decisions about your medical treatment and welfare, including whether or not you need long-term residential care and where that should be. Lasting Powers of Attorney are made whilst you have full capacity and serve to designate the individual you wish to look after you and your affairs should you suffer a loss of capacity.

 

Through a Property & Affairs LPA, someone you trust will be able to take over your financial affairs without cost or delay. A Health & Welfare LPA allows an individual to make decisions about your medical treatment and general welfare.
