Will Writing

Today, more than ever before, there is great importance in writing a Will. By making a Will you decide exactly how your estate is distributed and plan for the needs of your individual circumstances. There is no law to say that you must have a Will, however if the worst were to happen and you do not have a Will, then your assets may be distributed according to the law rather than your individual wishes.

No matter how complicated or simple your Will may be, we will work closely with you, listening carefully to your needs and wishes, and providing clear advice based on all of the information you give. After you are happy with all of the recommendations, then we can draft the Will and make a follow-up appointment so that the signing of the document can be supervised to ensure the correct procedures are followed.

Having a Will means you can:
  • Decide who should receive specific items that have a sentimental value, rather than all of your personal possessions being treated the same way.
  • Provide legacies of money for friends, charities or other organisations in your Will, which would otherwise not benefit if you died without a Will.
  • Have peace of mind that you have chosen someone who you personally trust to act as Executor, follow your wishes and ensure they are carried out.
  • Set out your funeral wishes to the family.
  • Appoint guardians to have parental responsibility of your dependants or children under the age of 18.
  • Ensure there is adequate provision for those financially dependent on you.
  • Make special provisions for children who may have health, matrimonial or financial problems.
  • Help prevent disputes or issues within your family by making your wishes clear.
  • Help to minimise tax liabilities or other expenses after your death.
