Wills and Will Writing
Our Value For You
Will writing - the truth is, it’s probably something you’d rather not think about.
But we feel sure that you would rather leave your hard-earned money to your loved ones rather than the government through inheritance tax, or to people who technically qualify but you wouldn't dream they should inherit your money.
- You really should make sure that you’ve written a Will. This is the best way to ensure that your estate will be divided up in the way that you want.
- Your Will is the only way to ensure your property, savings and possessions go to the people you want to benefit from them after you die. Telling your family, friends, and others, what you want does not count – it has to be formal, in a legal document, to be enforceable - otherwise, they may not get what you wanted them to have.
- Without a Will, the Laws of Intestacy apply to decide who inherits your possessions, property, and money.
A Will also allows you to state who you would like to look after children, other dependants, etc which can be enormously reassuring.
We recommend Wills are reviewed every 2 - 5 years or whenever your circumstances change, to ensure it is up to date and that your preferences are reflected when you pass away.
