Trust the Lodge Family Difference

October 20th, 2020 No comments

Our family had no idea what we were about to face when our family was struck down by corona virus in May of 2020. Living with my elderly mother and father-in-law was intended to keep them financially stable and safe in their latter years and it was a choice our family made, to ensure that we would always be just a door-knock away when every they needed us for the small things or the big things. One of those big things happened to our family at the end of April as the country locked down to protect each other from… well… each other. Since my mother and father in law were of the vulnerable age to the deadly virus, we endeavoured to take every precaution to ensure that they were isolated and that all exposure opportunities were limited. Like many other families around the UK, it became priority to ensure that there was as little risk to the family as we could physically mitigate.

As it so happened, with a number of additional underlying comorbidities, my mother-in-law began to display some of the symptoms including fever, dry cough and severe headaches and was subsequently collected on the May Day bank holiday 2020 and taken via ambulance to New Victoria Hospital. After testing positive, the hospital placed her in high care on a respirator and we waited with heavy hearts for 3 days as she used all of her energy to fight off the virus. Finally, in the early hours of Tuesday 5 May, she lost her fight and passed away leaving my father-in-law and her two grown son’s and their families, reeling with disbelief and immeasurable sadness that this virus is so destructive. From there everything became a bit of a blur and we immediately started looking for funeral directors to assist us with the preparation of the funeral. Just a few minutes’ drive from the hospital we found the Funeral Directors New Malden branch of Lodge Brothers funeral directors who responded immediately, despite us contacting them in the exceedingly early hours of the business day, to our every need.

When we arrived at the Lodge Brothers office later that day, the staff were extremely compassionate and prioritised our needs, from the minute we walked in. Their professionalism and compassion made us feel like we were the only family in the whole world, who was going through the passing of a loved one. All plans came together seamlessly as Kerry listened carefully to all our requests calmly and with 100% attention to detail which we so appreciated as everything was all so very overwhelming to process and decision-making was particularly difficult. Lodge Brothers staff went over and above to get us through the difficult time, which was especially helpful for my father-in-law whose whole life had changed in an instance. We thank Lodge Brothers Funerals and while we don’t look forward to it, we will trust you to help our family when we need to, in the future.

It may surprise the majority of people, that having a Will in place for when you pass on, is only the start of a series of rather complex legal events which needs to be finalised after a funeral takes place. For the most part, people feel prepared for all eventualities once the Will has been drawn up but in reality there is more that one needs to take into account other than just the allocation of your possessions as part of your last wishes.  To complicate matters more, no more than 30% of UK citizens actually have prepared their Will. This can lead to the possibility that the majority of families who experience the passing of a loved one, will end up have much more on their plate than they originally anticipated. Dealing with grief and loss is one of the most distressing experience a person could have. Add to that, the multitude of decisions and choices which need to be made once a person has passed, and its almost certainly too much to bear.

Lodge Brothers Probate Walton attorneys are able to assist families with issues of this kind, which arise, in situations where a person has failed to prepare. And just as one might think that drawing up a Will is something that they need professional help with, so too is the process of probate which is the next of the complex details that families are faced with.

Should a person pass away before they have had the opportunity to prepare their Will, their estate is automatically placed “intestate” meaning that the courts become responsible for assessing who is officially your next of kin and allocate your possessions accordingly. What this can mean is that your possessions are not allocated in the way in which you would have preferred them to be allocated. For example, a person who is on their second marriage to a person on their first marriage, may have children from that first marriage. The husband or wife of the second marriage may be deemed as your next in line heir, however you may wish for your children to received all of your inheritance and for nothing to be left to your second spouse. For whatever reasons you deem to be necessary, you have the right to do as you wish with your estate. If you should die without a Will in place, the courts may find that your second spouse receives everything. Nothing may be wrong with this at face value, however what if your second spouse re-marries and then all of your possessions go to the new spouse, by-passing your children entirely. Not through malice but rather through a series of events, your children may be left without financial security as a result.

The importance of reaching out Lodge Brothers Probate Ashford professionals to assist you with such decisions, which can have far-reaching effects on your family’s future, can never, be over-emphasised. Provide for your loved ones in the way that you wish and chose Lodge Brothers Legal attorneys to administer your estate.

PROBATE LODGE BROTHERS FEES ARE FIXED AND AGREED IN ADVANCE

August 18th, 2020 No comments

There comes a time in everyone’s life when there is a funeral to plan. What most people seldom think about, however, is that where there is a funeral, there is an associated requirement for funeral legal services Sunbury, which goes hand-in-hand with those related to funerals planning services. A unique and empathetic group of attorneys at Lodge Brothers legal services dedicate themselves to assisting families and individuals with the legal aspects involved in the end of life. Sad as it is to think that there is a requirement for such a service, it is probably one of the most important and practical aspects which need to be addressed, preferably while you as an individual, are still alive. Just like with funeral planning, end of life planning is without a doubt, one of the best things a person could do for the loved ones who will be left behind.

Funeral legal services Shepperton includes a cluster of specific services which one needs to attend to, to ease the burden on those left behind, and to ensure that there are no unexpected surprises awaiting them. These funeral legal services include the preparation and drawing up of a will, probate services, and powers of attorney.

Having a legal and binding will in place holds more importance than most people may expect, which is one of the reasons why so many people end up never quite getting to having theirs drawn up. One somehow always believes that there is time for these things. Meanwhile, we all know that no tomorrow is guaranteed. A legal will and testament will speak for you when you are no longer able to, whether it be because you are still on life-support, or if you have already passed away. Sometimes there is a need for you to tell others when it is time to let you go, in the event of a tragedy which leaves you unable to communicate for yourself any longer. Documents like DNR’s (Do not resuscitate) and organ donation instructions can help your family know what you would want them to do.

A person also has the option of appointing their attorney with the power of attorney to execute any and all final decisions and wishes intended by the individual. Doing so designates your attorney as sole executor of your property and finances. This can also apply to end of life decisions and actions which need to be taken, on your behalf if you are no longer able to.

Whether or not there is a will, the legal process of probate is required in order to administer the finalization of a person’s estate, whether according to the Will, if found to be legal, or in the event that there are instructions left behind. It becomes the responsibility of the court to decide who is rightfully entitled to your possessions. Lodge Brother Legal attorneys will professionally and legally administer your will, ensuring that your legal requests are carried out by the court and that your possessions are distributed as you intended them to be.

DIY Marquees Premium Range of Marquees

August 15th, 2020 No comments

According to the Cambridge dictionary, a marquee is a large tent used for eating and drinking at events held mainly outside that involve a lot of people. But for DIY Marquees, a marquee is defined as a lot more than that. For DIY Marquees, a marquee is an opportunity! A small, large, or medium tent with the purpose of eating and drinking in, yes, this is true. But a marquee offers something special to any event being held outside. Think about it… It not often that being outside is a safe choice for any special day. With the weather sometimes more temperamental than a two-year-old, there is no real way of knowing what a day will bring, no matter what season you plan your event in. And this is not just something that happens in the UK, where we have a reputation for unpredictable weather… an outdoor event anywhere in the world is something someone plans with fingers crossed and hoping for the odds to be ever in their favour!

  

All the marquees that DIY Marquees supply is of the highest quality and we sell each and every one of our large variety of marquees with an unwritten guarantee that the odds will be ever in your favour when you use one of these marquees. This being said, we also acknowledge that sometimes there is a need for a marquee which offers a little something extra in terms of strength and quality. By quality, we don’t mean good or bad quality… we mean great or extra great, which is achieved with thicker, more durable materials. Designed for a tougher environment, and for frequent use, Premium DIY Marquees come in a range of sizes and all of which have the extra durability to ensure that there is no event for which DIY Marquees is not a match for, under any weather conditions possible. When designing these marquees, there was no advantage which was ignored in formulating their construction. Even very large marquees can be constructed with a Premium marquee as they have the strength to withstand any terrain or any awkward shape which may be needed to suit the specifics of your event.

Multi-purpose marquees like the Premium range of marquees will never disappoint. With a large range of marquee spare parts (replaceable joints, poles, and covers for 3, 4 and 6-meter marquees) which are available for purchase via the very interactive and information-packed website, there is literally nothing that a person could not do with one of these premium marquees which feature, 20 degree wind resistant roofs, 38mm steel piped frameworks with the option of additional ground bars, PVC side panels and roofs covers which are made from Duracotex (protective flexible material with industrial coatings) and which provide the durability and longevity which ensures the life-span of the DIY Premium range of marquees.

Use the Marquee Buyers Guide interactive marquee planner to experiment with different layouts in the marquee or contact us with your requirements and we would be more than happy to put together some sample layouts for you.
