PROPERTY AND ASSETS

Prevent authorities and other parties from getting their hands on possessions you’ve obtained and wish to preserve for loved ones

WHAT IS ESTATE PLANNING?

An Estate Plan is like a shield that protects your hard-earned assets and legacy from the unknowns of the future. It's a tool that ensures your wishes are respected and your loved ones are taken care of when you're no longer here. Without an estate plan, your assets could end up in the wrong hands, leaving your legacy in ruin.

Estate planning is now a much more affordable solution for everyone who owns a property and/or savings.  No matter how big or small your estate, you should want to protect from unanticipated costs. A Trust guarantees your beneficiaries will inherit.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ESTATE PLANNING?

An estate plan is the ultimate gift you can give to yourself and your loved ones. It's a powerful tool that ensures your legacy lives on and your wishes are fulfilled, even after you're gone. With an estate plan, you can rest easy knowing that your hard-earned assets will be used to benefit the people and causes that matter most to you.

 

If you own any assets, would like to pass them on to your loved ones, keep control of your affairs and protect your beneficiaries from financial and legal stress, then having an Estate plan in place is ESSENTIAL.

5 REASON WHY TO PROTECT YOUR ASSETS WITH A TRUST

Avoiding Confusion
After You Pass

Many people have experienced a situation when a loved one failed to make an estate plan before they passed and the turmoil it brings. Passing without an estate plan can cause significant stress on the family emotionally and financially caused by probate fees inflicted on your state, inheritance tax, outstanding care home fees and worse still unforeseen creditors.

Protect
Beneficiaries

Estate plans are made to protect minor beneficiaries or adult beneficiaries from making bad decisions because they are young or because they are being influenced by outside forces from creditor problems, divorcing spouses, and worse. Estate planning techniques can help you protect your loved ones even after you’ve passed. You can designate a guardian and a trustee for your minor beneficiaries and you can take precautions to help an adult beneficiary from making bad decisions with their inheritance.

Avoiding Probate Court and Probate Fees

The most common reason for estate planning is to avoid probate fees. We’ve all heard frightening stories from family, friends and the media about assets getting held up and unnecessary extra costs. Your assets are yours no matter how small or large and you know what you want to do with them. An estate plan will keep your estate from going through probate.

Protect Assets from Unforeseen Creditors

Asset protection planning is a combination of a secure financial plan and a well thought out estate plan that can protect your assets during your lifetime and your beneficiaries after your passing. Without asset protection planning, your life’s work can be erased by anyone who contests your Will or a series of mishaps.

Reduce Inheritance Tax

Professional Estate planning can help people with a larger estate reduce and maybe even eliminate inheritance tax altogether by setting up a Property or Asset Protection Trust alongside your Will.
