Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult challenges the majority of us will face in a lifetime. While acknowledging the end of our days is a thought few relish, realistically making a Will is the only thing you can do to prepare for it. As many as 60% of people never bother to make a Will.
Using our specialist knowledge of property, trust and tax laws, we can help you draw up a Will that puts an end to uncertainty you may have and ensures that your wishes are met.
Who should make a Will?
Married or civil partners with assets they wish to leave their family
Divorced couples or dissolved civil partnerships
Unmarried and same sex couples living together
Individuals who may want to leave gifts to friends, charities or others outside their family
People with individual estates worth more than £125,000
Anyone who wants to express wishes about their specific funeral arrangements, about organ donation or giving their body for the purpose medical research.
Why bother making a Will?
If you do not specify what you want to happen after you die – who gets what, and what happens with your possessions and money – the law will do it for you and it may not bring the outcomes you want or expect. You can’t assume that your wife or partner will automatically get everything if you don’t make a Will. If you’re not married, your partner is more than likely to lose out. Making a Will is not just about what you want to do with money and assets. You also need to ensure you have appointed trusted Executors to administer you estate and Guardians, to take care of any children you have under the age of 17, so that your children are not left without parents and the law decide who looks after them.
