Making a Will and keeping it up-to-date is the best way to make sure your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes when you die. Without a Will, the rules of intestacy will apply and you will have no choice in who the beneficiaries of your estate will be. This can cause upset and unnecessary friction at an emotional time for your family.

It is a good idea to review your Will whenever key events in your life occur, such as marriage or divorce, or an expanding family, or even a new business venture. We can advise you on the best option for you to suit your changing life circumstances.

The importance of a Will is often not considered – until it’s too late.

Wills and Inheritance Tax

A carefully drafted Will to cater for your personal circumstances, can help reduce exposure to inheritance tax on your death and provide future tax planning for future generations.

Our legal advisers will ask you how you want your estate to be distributed on your death, what assets you own, and what questions and concerns you may have about your wishes. We will advise you both on the structure of your Will and on associated matters such as tax planning and asset protection.
