Wills

The best way to provide for your family, friends and other beneficiaries is through a valid Will.

It is important to put a Will in place to determine who will benefit from your estate and how your estate will be distributed on your death.

If you have significant assets, it is also important to have a Will for legitimate tax planning purposes.

You should also review your Will regularly to ensure it is in line with your current wishes.

When do you need to make a Will?

Do you need a Will?

You will need to make a Will if you answer yes to any one or more of the following questions:

  • Do you have children under 18 years of age?
  • Do you own your own home?
  • Cohabiting or remarried with children from an earlier marriage?
  • Do you have assets greater than £325,000?
  • Do you envisage paying for care?
  • Do you own a business or agricultural assets?

Excellent communication and helpful advice – easy to contact and if in a meeting would always phone back promptly – we were completely satisfied.

Did you Know?

  • Did you know getting married makes your Will null and void (unless made in contemplation of marriage)?
  • Are you in a relationship but not married? Did you know that intestacy rules will not provide for your loved one?
  • Did you know that if your child’s marriage breaks down, this will impact on any assets you leave them?
  • Did you know that you can make arrangements in your Will about Guardians for your children?
  • Did you know that if you divorce, this is likely to impact upon the effect of your Will?

Thank you so much for making the will process so simple. I particularly found your instructional video on how to sign my Will helpful and easy to understand. Thank you also for the professional, kind and considerate way you have conducted yourself during this very stressful time in my life.
