Wills

The importance of a will is often not considered until it’s too late.  Making a will and keeping it up-to-date is the best way to make sure your assets are distributed according to 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 unnecessary friction at an emotional time for your family.

Review your will

That’s why it’s a good idea to review your will whenever important events in your life occur, such as:

  • Marriage or re-marriage
  • Divorce
  • New additions to the family
  • Moving home
  • A new business venture

When it comes to drafting a will, we will take your circumstances into account and advise you on the best option to suit you and your family.

Wills and inheritance tax advice

A carefully written will can help minimise exposure to inheritance tax in the event of your death and also provide tax planning for future generations.

Our expert solicitors will ask you:

  • What assets you own
  • How you want your estate to be distributed on your death
  • If you have any questions or concerns about your wishes

We will advise you on the structure of your will and on related matters, such as tax planning and asset protection.
