DIVORCE
  • If your beneficiaries including your children are subject to divorce proceedings, then half of what you intended them to receive is at risk to divorce settlements.
CREDITORS OR BANKRUPTCY
  • Your inherited estate is at full risk if your surviving partner is subject to any creditor claims or bankruptcy.
MARRIAGE AFTER DEATH OFTEN REFERRED TO AS (MAD)
  • The surviving partner will own all assets on first death. However, if the said surviving partner was to remarry, in inherited assests could be lost to the new spouse. This in term means that your children could not inherit any assests.
CARE COSTS
  • If your surviving partner is in need of nursing care, then the whole estate including th efamily home be need to be assessed in order to pay for the care costs.
INHERITANCE TAX (IHT)
  • The amount inherited more than the current Nil Rate band is the IHT that would need to be paid. Remember that there is the potential of a double bite which is wehn the IHT is paid twice on the same asset.
GENERATIONAL IHT
  • On second death the remaining estate is directed by the Will to the beneficiaries absolutely. This then adds to the beneficiaries estate and could impact their own Inheritance Tax.

Remember we offer a free consultation, we can even come to you.
