If you want to protect your assets for family, friends and future generations, having a professionally drafted will is essential. Our team can help you document your wishes, so you can be confident that they’ll be respected after you die.
While it’s not a subject many of us like to think about, preparing for your death is something we all must take into careful consideration.
Without a last Will and Testament, you cannot be sure that your final wishes will be adhered to, which is why it is important to document what you wish to happen to your estate before you die.
Drafting a will can be a complex process, as there are many points you need to consider. This can include determining the executors of your estate, who your beneficiaries will be and how to reduce the costs of inheritance tax.
To keep your affairs in order, you should ask a solicitor for help drafting your Will. This will make it easier to plan for your death, ensures your will is valid and prevents your estate from being distributed under the rules of intestacy.
Solicitors can provide the following services when helping with your will:
- Determine who your executors and trustees will be
- Limit the impact of nursing home fees on your estate
- Minimise the cost of inheritance tax
- Set up trusts for your children and grandchildren
- In the event of a second marriage, provide for your spouse and your children of your first marriage
- Confirm plans for your funeral
