Making a will
Astonishingly, more than half (58%) of UK adults do not currently have a will (source: National Will Register.) If you die intestate, or without making a will in the UK, you will not be able to benefit a charity or friends on your death – the law instead decides who inherits your estate.
We understand what a sensitive issue making a will can be. We will allocate a highly experienced will writing lawyer to take you through the whole process, giving you reassurance that your affairs will be taken care of properly after your death.
When you make or update your will it is important to take into consideration:
- Choosing the executors or trustees of your will.
- Appointing a guardian for younger children.
- Providing for those who are closest to you.
- How best to provide for those you love when you have children from a previous relationship
- Inheritance and other tax matters.
- Stating wishes for your funeral.
At the same time, as your family circumstances change, for example if relatives die, if you marry or divorce, grandchildren arrive, or grown-up children’s marriages do not work out, you should review your will.
