Wills

Whether single, married or a parent, Wills are a key element in estate planning and, without a will you are unable to control what happens to your assets after death.

You may leave your dependents with numerous problems, including an unmanageable tax burden; and yet the Law Society reports that more than two out of three people have not made a Will.

Without a Will, the law will determine how your estate will be distributed, so your family, friends and favourite charities may not receive what they need or expect.  If you do not make a Will, those you leave behind may suffer the distress of coping with legal complications as well as losing a loved one.

Many married people believe that their possessions would automatically go to their partner.  Without a Will, though, that is not necessarily the case.  And if you are not married, your partner could receive nothing.

We can help you to make the correct provisions in your will and ensure that your wishes are carried out:

  • Draw up your Will, making provision for all the people important to you
  • Ensure that your wishes are carried out and that you fully understand the draft
  • Advise on Inheritance Tax to minimise your tax liabilities
  • Advise on your assets to ensure wealth protection
  • Arrange signing of your Will and retain it for safe-keeping

Making a legally valid Will is the only way to be sure that, in the event of your death, your money and possessions go to the people and causes you care about.
