Lifetime Planning

Wills

Your family is the most important part of your life, it’s important to ensure that your dependents and loved ones are safe, secure and provided for in the future.

No matter what, it is vitally important to hold a legally binding and current Will. In the event of your death, you do not want to leave loved ones to deal with ill-organised, contradictory or missing wills.

If you die without a Will, your assets may pass to people whom you would not have chosen to benefit, as your estate will simply be distributed to the letter of the law. It is all the more important to make a Will if you have a first and second family, if you are not married or in a civil partnership and if you own your home.

It is also important to instruct a solicitor when writing your Will, this is true because solicitors are monitored and regulated by governing body. This means that you are protected should there be any issue with your Will in the future. If you chose to make your Will with an unregulated person or company, you have no assurances as to the validity or legality of the document. This article featured in The Law Society Gazette highlights this issue: here

For a one off fixed fee you can ensure peace of mind for you and your family in less than a week, don’t hesitate and set your affairs in order today.

We offer all our Will clients the option to store their Wills in our storage facility which is fire safe and waterproof. The original Wills are then kept indefinitely or until our clients update them, giving you and your loved ones complete peace of mind. So once you have made your will, you will only have to think about it again if your circumstances change.

Even if your circumstances have not altered we recommend that you review your Will at least every five years so that we can advise you if relevant laws have changed.

For your interest, we have written a few articles on Will writing which can be found here
