Despite the current Covid-19 situation we are still able to prepare Wills for you either by taking your instructions by telephone, email or using a video link that we can set up for you.
Between 54% – 60% of adults in the UK don’t have a Will which is a staggering percentage. If you don’t make a Will, your estate will be dealt with in accordance with the law and the very strict rules of intestacy. This can result in undesirable results and sometimes the exact opposite of what you want.
Do you want to decide who has guardianship of your children? Do you want to decide who inherits your house, car, money, possessions and your beloved four-legged companion? Do you want to decide how your funeral is conducted? Do you want to “try” to avoid family disputes? If the answer to any of these is yes then you need to consider making a Will as soon as possible.
Do you live with your partner but you’re not married? Without a Will they would inherit nothing which could leave them with disastrous financial consequences to deal with, alongside the grief of losing you.
Are you worried about paying 40% of your estate to HMRC in inheritance tax? By making a Will you can plan ways to reduce or even eliminate the need to pay inheritance tax.
Have you separated from your partner but not divorced yet? By not having a Will your ex partner could inherit the majority of your assets.
Have you got a Will but recently got married? Check your Will because if your Will doesn’t contemplate that specific marriage, then your existing Will is revoked automatically.
