A will is one of the most important documents you will ever make. You choose not only who will inherit your assets but also who will deal with your estate when you are gone.
If you die without making a will, the law decides who inherits what you own. If you have children under 18, you can appoint a guardian rather than this being left to social services.
We cover every aspect of drafting a will. We ensure that YOUR wishes are recorded and legally binding. You can leave your most treasured possessions to the people you choose, leave money to charity, set up trust funds for the education of your children or grandchildren and ensure the people you love are provided for.
Qualified Experienced Solicitors
There is no substitute for proper qualified and expert legal advice. A well-drafted will reduces the chance of later complications, disputes and stress for your family at a difficult time, and can limit the amount of tax payable. We also offer specialist inheritance tax advice from a STEP qualified lawyer.
Taking Care of Everything
Being named an executor can be daunting, but we can advise you on your responsibilities, and help ease the burden. We can handle the complex administration process following the death of a relative whether or not they made a will. Our expert advice can save hours of time in dealing with the red tape necessary to satisfy the Revenue and the Courts.
We also offer advice and services on Powers of Attorney.
