SJM Wills & Associated Services Ltd
My name is Sue Mason and I am the principle of SJM Wills & Associated Services Ltd, which was established in late 2004, having qualified for a law degree in that year. I have been a regulated member of the Institute of Professional Willwriters since January 2005.
Combined with my legal experience and the code of practice set by the Institute of Professional Willwriters (IPW) and Trading Standards, I am able to provide legally compliant advice and related documents to the preparation of Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, provision for long term care and funeral plans.
Everybody needs a Will but especially people with young children or children from previous relationships. Anyone getting married, divorced or living together also need to write Wills. I will talk to you about how to protect your assets for your beneficiaries from care-fees and remarriage and what happens if you lose capacity to make finance or health decisions. Lasting Powers of Attorney are probably more important than a Will, as without one in place, if you lose capacity your finances could be frozen for 18months-2years, including some joint bank accounts. Finally, the cost of funeral plans has risen by about 125% over the last 15 years, so pre-paying for your funeral (up to the age of 80) will save you thousands of pounds and will guarantee there are no price increases in the future.
I am based in Locks Heath and have clients across Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight. I can come to your house during the day Mon-Sat or an early evening. If you would like to contact me for a free no obligation conversation, my number is 01489 578931
