It is estimated that over half of the UK adult population has not made a will. This can lead to severe financial difficulties for those left behind, which could have been totally avoidable had suitable advice been taken.
If you die without making a will you are said to die ‘intestate’ and the Government will decide on how your estate is distributed, whilst social services will decide who will look after children under 18 years of age if both parents are no longer alive.
As our social climate changes, e.g. second marriages, civil partnerships, cohabitees, step-children, and life expectancy increases, a valid will is the most important document you can own to ensure your wishes are carried out after you have died.
We have a comprehensive will writing service and can also advise you on protecting your assets and alleviate any potential inheritance tax. This also ensures that the maximum amount of your estate is passed to the beneficiaries you choose.
