Probate valuation Surrey specialists Avery Associates advise that now is a good time to save for probate.
The Co-Operative recently provided some advice to Brits that now might be a good time to start saving away for the probate process.
The reason for the advice is because it was recently announced that debt levels are going down in the UK.
The news came from Credit Action which revealed that over the Christmas period the level of debt for households went down overall. Compared to November, the level of household debt went down from £7,972 to £7,948.
At the same time, the same period saw the daily interest paid on the nation’s debt go down from £173 million to £171 million.
As a result, The Co-Operative suggested that people may want to start saving a bit more if they find that they have some spare money. This could go towards their inheritance pots instead of just spending it, and as such people would be able to start preparing better for when they pass away.
For example, people may want to start to put their extra money in savings accounts or start to make careful investments which may help their loved ones in their event of their death.
However, there was also a warning by Credit Action not to get too hopeful just yet. It could be that around the Christmas period people are just trying to be more cautious and stop themselves from saving too much.
But the advice from the Co-Operative certainly makes sense for anyone who does find themselves with a bit more money, and it may well be worth putting some aside in their probate pots.
