The importance of making a Will cannot be over stressed as it is the only way to fully ensure that your wishes are carried out following your death.
Most people delay making a Will until they are older. However, you should always consider making a Will if you own assets, have children and/or a partner (particularly if you are unmarried as they will otherwise be unable to inherit).
You can also use your Will to set out important wishes such as who will look after your minor children, who will deal with your estate on your behalf (your Executors), and your funeral wishes.

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document that permits you to appoint a person (or persons) that you trust to be able to make decisions on your behalf at a time in the future. It may be that you lose the mental capacity to make those decisions; or that you no longer wish to make those decisions yourself.
There are two forms of Lasting Power. The first concerns Health & Welfare and allows you to plan in advance by choosing one or more people to make decisions on your behalf regarding your personal health and welfare. These decisions can only be made by somebody else when you lack the capacity to make them for yourself; for example, if you are unconscious or because of the onset of a medical condition such as dementia.
The second type of Lasting Power concerns Property & Financial Affairs. Your chosen attorney or attorneys will be able to make decisions concerning your finances whilst you still have capacity as well as when you lack capacity. For example, it may be easier for you to give someone this power to carry out tasks such as paying your bills, managing your everyday finances
