Wills

A well-drafted and flexible will is a key tool to protect your family or dependants in the future, yet half of all Britons fail to take this sensible step.

A will allows you to organise your estate so that you can pass on your wealth to the people you want to benefit, avoid unnecessary tax bills and specify exactly how your assets are dealt with. It also gives you peace of mind that you can make arrangements for the care of your children or dependants in the event of your death.

Without a will, there is uncertainty and your family or dependants may not benefit in the way you had intended: where there is no will, the State sets the rules.

Our expert team can advise you on the issues you need to consider and the drafting of your will to reflect your wishes.

We can also advise on matters including the appointment of a guardian for children aged under 18, options to protect your estate, such as trusts, inheritance tax and on preparing a Lasting Power of Attorney, which it is wise to put in place alongside your will. We will also ensure that your will is properly dated, signed and witnessed, which is critical to the validity of your will.

Making a will is a simple, affordable step that will give you peace of mind that your loved ones will be looked after when you are no longer around.
