Will Drafting

No one likes to think about making a Will, but without one the law will determine how your estate will be distributed under the rules of intestacy. This means that your family, friends and charities may not receive what you would wish or what they need. It is also important to remember that co-habitees and step-children will not automatically benefit from an intestate estate.

In contrast if you make a Will you will keep control over what happens to your property after you die and can ensure:

  • Those you care for are provided for
  • You decide who should deal with your estate (known as the executor)
  • You choose someone to look after your minor children
  • You minimise tax payable on your death
  • You remember family and friends by leaving them particular gifts
  • You avoid disputes over your property from first and second families
  • You make proper provision for your co-habitees if you are unmarried
  • You provide a smooth handover of your business
  • You consider any foreign property you own

Your estate will include your home, business, savings, insurance or pension policies, personal possessions and also any second home.

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

  • Draw up your Will, making provision for all the important people to you
  • 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

It may cost less than you think - we offer value for money fixed fees for simple Wills.
