Writing a Will

Writing a Will

Are you one of the 50% of the population that doesn’t have a Will? Well don’t panic: we’re here to arrange one for you.

Most people know how important it is to make a Will, but it’s just one of those jobs that so often gets put off for another day. You’d never want to drive uninsured, or go on holiday leaving your house without insurance would you? Think of making a Will as your personal insurance policy: it gives you full peace of mind, knowing that your affairs are all in order and everything will be sorted out on your death exactly as you would have wanted.

Dying “intestate” or without having made a Will can leave a trail of disaster behind you: legal costs, family rows over entitlements to assets, unnecessary tax charges and even court involvement. All things that would make life far more difficult for those left heading than you want to be.

So, whatever your situation and your stage in life, do make an appointment to see us; we’ll be pleased to take you through it all. Tell us about the things you own and the ways in which you’d like them to be shared out with the people who are important to you. You might also want to tell us about those who you don’t want to inherit from you. You may want to make gifts to charities, appoint Guardians for children, or set up trusts to hold your assets. We’ll use our expertise and experience to advise you on the best ways of arranging matters, minimising tax liabilities and providing for your family’s future.

Your specialist lawyer will work with you throughout the process, so you can be sure that everything is covered, just as you want. And then you can sleep well at night knowing that your affairs are all in order and that your wishes will be carried out.
