Estate Planning Essex and London

Legacy Planning

What is Estate Planning?

Estate planning helps you protect and safeguard your legacy (assets) now, as you live, and when death occurs, and assets are transferred to next generation, beneficiaries or your selected organisations like charities. Estate planning ensures that your assets transferred in accordance with your values, your vision and your goals. FOL WEALTH Estate planning in Essex helps protect your estate and ensure that your family and friends are looked after. We ensure that your personal goals and beliefs are fully respected. 

Who Needs Estate Planning?

Nearly everyone.

While your individual estate planning needs may differ depending on a number of factors, including your age, your health, your financial situation, and your objectives, almost everyone can benefit from a well-thought-out estate plan.

The first thing you want is peace of mind about your financial well-being. Once you have secured your peace of mind, you may want to turn your attention to helping your family now and in the future. The question is, how do you do it in a way that gives your family maximum tax advantage but also encourages your heirs to reach their full potential? 


When the planning is poorly structured, you may find your hard-earned assets are unnecessarily taxed, squandered by loved ones, exposed to lawsuits or creditors, or, even worse, create substantial family conflict and enable risky and indulgent behavior.


It can be especially important to have a structured plan in place when you fall into any of the categories below:

  • A desire to delay distribution of wealth to your heirs
  • Second marriage for one or both spouses
  • Business owner
  • Charitable intentions
  • Children are minors or have special needs
  • Estate is valued at more than the threshold
