The new year saw the introduction of the clumsily named Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWOs), and a number of clients have contacted our legal team to discuss their concerns. In most cases, we have reassured them that only one such order has been issued so far, and though serious, the group of people it affects directly is limited.However, as with other recent moves to introduce greater transparency into property acquisition, UWOs need to be taken seriously as part and parcel of any wealth-planning considerations.
