DAUGHTER - SOPHIE:

- If something unthinkable were to happen to any family members, there would be uncertainty about where each person’s estate would go. If you do not have a Will, there are some hard and fast rules about what goes where in the event of your death, so having a Will is the best way to ensure that you remain in control.
- Katherine wants to make sure Sophie gets her valuable jewellery, and that her cats, as well as a sizeable donation of money, goes to her local cat rescue centre (in the event that Joe in unable to take care of them). She and Joe would also like to divide their savings up between Sophie and Alex, ensuring an equal measure of worth between the two when the value of their house is taken into account.
- One of Joe’s concerns is making sure his share of his son’s business, as silent partner, is attributed back to him.
- Both Alex and Sophie have pets to take into consideration, as well as considerable assets in the form of property, land and business. Alex wants to make sure his business goes to his wife in the event of anything happening to him, so that she is able to continue to pay their mortgage and their wedding debt.
- Sophie would like to ensure her pension is directed to her daughter.
