Wills and Inheritance Tax Planning
Your loved ones are an important part of your life, it’s important to ensure that your dependants 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.
