Wills Solicitors

You can expect a skilled and experienced team, offering everything from advice on the most straightforward cases, to complex estates with trusts for vulnerable beneficiaries.

What is a Will?

A Will allows you to:

  • Provide financial security for loved ones – without a Will, you have no say in how your wealth passes
  • Appoint trusted individuals to be responsible for your affairs (your executors)
  • Decide How your property and possessions are to be divided
  • Set your funeral wishes
  • Reduce or even eliminate potential inheritance tax liability
  • Decide who you wish to act as guardians for your children

Most wills and LPAs can be drafted for you at a fixed cost, which can be confirmed once we know more about your situation.

The law in this area is complex, and a will can be contested by a wide range of people.

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a document that allows you to appoint people to help you make decisions.

What should you consider when making a Will?

Things to consider when you make a will include

  • Who will administer your estate
  • Who will benefit from your estate
  • Who will care for your young children
  • How much financial provision to make for your beneficiaries
  • What age your young beneficiaries will inherit
  • Setting up a trust that provides for a vulnerable child or dependent
  • Who gets possessions with sentimental value and family heirlooms
  • Whether you’d like to leave anything to charity.

You can review your will at any time and can make amendments if your circumstances change.

Do you need help with the following?

  • Lasting Power of Attorney
  • Will Drafting
  • Wills to Provide for Disabled
