Making a Will and keeping it up-to-date is important for many reasons:
- it allows you to provide for your family's future
- you can specify where you want your money and possessions to go
- you can appoint someone to sort out your affairs, or be a guardian to your children
Without a Will, the strict rules regarding inheritance may lead to your estate being divided in a way you don't want. There's no guarantee that your loved ones will automatically inherit everything, so it's vital to plan ahead and have a valid Will.
In addition to drafting and updating your Will, we can advise on steps to help minimise your liability for inheritance tax; we also store all Wills for free.
Preparing a Will can be complicated, but we will make the process straightforward. Our expert team can draft or update your Will quickly and thoroughly, while always being sensitive to your situation. We can visit you at home, hospital or in a residential home (if required) to advise you on your Will.
