Karla from Eastbourne - my Will
After 10 years of writing my will and circumstance in my life had changed i needed to review my will . So in 2019 I contacted First Choice Heritage to update my will but wanted to make sure that my kids would be looked after when I passed. Having a disabled Adult i knew i needed a trust but was not sure how this works and also to make sure my daughter was looked after. Not really understanding anything about this I needed someone to talk in a language that i would understand . First Choice Heritage was able to provide this service which was free and no pressure to me, no question unanswered and was done in my home.
The worries I had about my tenancy are now solved thanks to my visit to Barry. I had lots of queries that needed a clear head and a chat with someone who knows the system. My landlord was not being very helpful so its great to find someone who was able to listen and reassure me what to do. Barry has saved me a lot of money in legal costs. Thanks Barry!
Karla from Eastbourne - my LPA
I have a son with Downs Syndrome and medical needs and I got my LPA in 2017 for my son. How did this help us ? This meant that i could attend hospital appointments as well as GP and help explain his illness and ask questions, help filling out PiPS forms and benefits for him as well as attending the bank. Although my son has capacity he finds in hard to express himself in front of professionals so I can express his wishes to Social services and they will listen - this takes the stress away from my son . I have found this invaluable and it has helped us to have his wishes heard on many occasions.
Getting help with my father and mothers LPAs was simple and quick and cheaper than going to a solicitor for them. We can all rest assured now that when the time comes Mum and Dad will be able to hand the day to day decisions about finances health and welfare over to family who care, without a lengthy and expensive Court procedure which would be upsetting for everyone.
