Some legal protections are automatic. For example, we are automatically protected against discrimination under the 2010 Equality Act – we do not need to meet with a solicitor and arrange documentation to protect ourselves. Others, however, are neither automatic nor mandatory – but they are equally important in protecting ourselves and those we love from adverse situations as we move through life.

This checklist is designed as a prompt to help you consider some of the key legal documents you should have on hand and the things you need to think about to give yourself and your loved ones every advantage in life.

You may think that these things only apply to older people, or maybe that you will never need them. Sadly, it is not until somebody we love dies without a Will or loses mental capacity that we truly understand the importance of planning for every legal eventuality.
