protecting home and assets
As families get older, a common concern for parents is the number of obstacles that could prevent their home and assets from passing to the next generation
A fear shared by many of my clients is that if they pass away, their estate would be highly vulnerable.
Why is that, John?
Well, there are three main reasons:
- If the survivor remarries, their current will is effectively cancelled. Should they die without making a new will, the new spouse will be entitled to most, if not all of the estate.
- The survivor may become totally infatuated with the new spouse and re-write the will to leave everything to him or her.
- If the survivor entered long term care, they, like thousands of others every year, will have to sell their home to fund their care.
When you need long-term care, the local authority assesses the value of your estate. If the total exceeds a certain figure, you are responsible for paying for your care. If, however, it is under that figure, the local authority must pick up the bill.
