During our first meeting, we will spend time understanding your circumstances to ensure we can help you as effectively as possible. Some of the things you could consider beforehand are the following:
The size of your current financial commitments – especially your mortgage and any other significant loans.
For mortgage clients - how much deposit you will have?
Any big changes you’re planning in your life – starting or growing your family, moving house, changing job.
How much it costs to run the family home, and to support the standard of living you want your family to have.
The total value of any assets you plan to pass on to those closest to you when you die.
