According to statistics, two out of every three people still do not have wills.
It is vital to have an up-to-date Will to make sure that you assets are passed on to family and friends in line with your wishes. Many people believe that the assets of someone who is married will simply pass to his or her spouse. This is not necessarily the case, unless the person’s Will make specific provision to this effect. If you die without a Will (‘intestate’), your Estate will be distributed according to a set of complex legal rules which can often lead to very unsatisfactory results for many dependents.
We understand there can be sensitive issues involved in making a Will, particularly where a family business is involved, and with our skills and in-depth client knowledge we are well placed to offer guidance and to help you to make the right decisions for you and your family.
We can help clients find solutions when:
- Minimising inheritance tax is priority
- Business property is involved, e.g sole trader, partnership or shares in a family Company
- There are gifts to charities
- Family assets need protecting from divorce claims
- A family trust is needed for children or a spouse/partner
- Hopefully to avoid family squabbling
How much does a Will cost?
The cost will vary according to an individual’s personal circumstances. Your initial appointment with a qualified professional is provided on a no-obligation basis. At that stage we would provide you with a fee quote.
