No doubt you take your car in regularly to get its Warrant of Fitness (WOF)? When was the last time you put your legal arrangements under the spotlight? It might be time you took the Lundons Law ‘Legal WOF’.

Try out our checklist to discover how well legally protected you and your assets are.

Your “Legal Safety Inspection” / WOF

Yes No Entered into a new relationship and need advice on assets?
Yes No Managing assets for ‘blended’ family?

Give yourself one point for every time you answered ‘Yes’ to one of these questions.

So, what’s your score?

We strongly recommend you seek professional legal advice to ensure your assets and wishes are legally protected.
