Support for Later Life and Estate Planning
We offer access to a national network of independent legal services professionals who work in partnership with financial advisers to support their financial advice.
Farani Taylor’s independent professionals provide specialist legal advice in all areas, whilst keeping the financial adviser fully in the picture.
This service works in conjunction with the rest of our range of Partner Services, to create a comprehensive estate plan encompassing all aspects of legal, tax and financial planning.
Later life and estate planning has been and continues to be a rapidly growing area of advice in the UK and with an ageing population, has never been more relevant.
Support and Peace of Mind
Through Farani Taylor, you will have nationwide access to legal consultants wherever your clients are based.
To ensure that your clients’ demands and needs are met and that all advice is appropriate and suitable.
You may discuss your clients’ needs on a non-committal basis with an adviser from Farani Taylor.
When you are ready to introduce a client, a legal adviser will make contact with your client and arrange an appointment to:
- conduct a full review of your clients’ legal circumstances
- provide appropriate legal and estate planning recommendations
Once an instruction has been received, the legal adviser will usually produce high-quality documents within a week.
Any opportunities for financial or investment advice will be automatically referred back to you

A Will states who inherits your estate. Without one, you die intestate and your estate is distributed according to the rules set by law. These rules do not cater for your specific wishes and can mean family members may benefit when you would prefer them not to do so. In some circumstances your assets may go to distant relatives you have never met or even pass to the Crown.
Although everyone knows they should have a Will, 60% of the UK adult population do not have one. Of the 40% that do have a Will, 1-in-4 do not reflect their wishes or are simply not valid. Often that is due to change of circumstance or not signing the Will properly.
Making a Will is the only way to make sure that your estate goes to the right people.
Your Lasting Power of Attorney
Lasting powers of attorneys (LPA) are thought to only be useful and appropriate for use with the elderly. However, this is a misconception that needs to be addressed and the younger generation need them too, especially those who participate in sports and other physical activities.
Currently only 6% of the population have either a LPA or Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA). They are a protection product as important as any other you have such as life insurance or buildings insurance.
A LPA is a legal document that enables an attorney the legal authority to look after your affairs or make decisions on your behalf if you are incapacitated or unable too. Conditions can be specified in the LPA, so your attorney acts in your interest.
