About this Event

All of us work hard all our lives to accumulate possessions. We buy houses, cars, and we save for the future. We make sure there is something for a rainy day and we hope one day to pass on all that we have accumulated to the people we love the most. This is only natural. In the UK there is a complex framework of laws, rules and procedure which has been developed by successive Governments to control how we manage our wealth, to whom we can give it, and when and how much of it the Government is entitled to take from it both in our lifetimes and on our deaths.

We have been living in a period of austerity for some time now. We regularly hear about cuts to health services and education and it is clear the Government is looking for ways to increase the amount that each of us contribute towards society. However, at the same time an increasing percentage of the population make little or no contribution and a strong feeling of injustice is felt by many.

We are all living longer – this is widely recognised. This has created a dilemma for those trying to budget for retirement. When the state pension was introduced, life expectancy was only five years from retirement.

Today it is more than twenty years. Many of us will not now receive our state pension until we are at least 67 if not older. Added to this, the cost of care fees currently outstrips pension income by more than 15 times, making budgeting even harder, as whether or not you will need care is of course unknown.

More and more people have turned to property as a safe investment to provide for their families in the future. 1 in 5 properties in the UK is now owned by a landlord. Yet the proportion of landlords looking to sell in the next 12 months has more than doubled since July 2015.
