Wills

Wills

Making a Will and keeping it up to date is the only way to ensure that your assets are distributed as you wish after your death. A professionally-drafted Will ensures that your wishes are accurately recorded, that the assets you’ve worked so hard for are passed on to those you care most about, and that you are able to provide for any dependants when you are no longer around.  It also gives you the opportunity to leave cherished personal and family items to those who will treasure them.

A Will is essential if you have children or other dependants who may not be able to care for themselves, providing certainty about who will look after or provide for them if you die.  We can draft documents that allow you to have your say and pass responsibility for their care to someone you trust.

A Will is particularly important if you are in a committed relationship but not married or in a registered civil partnership. Many people are surprised to hear that the law does not recognise partners who live together as having the same rights as spouses, and a partner with whom you have lived for many years may inherit nothing from your estate.

Who will inherit your assets when you die?

Our focus is on ensuring that your estate is distributed as you wish, avoiding the potential for dispute, misinterpretation, and the unnecessary stress and conflict that can result.

Wills are particularly important where:

  • You have financial or other dependants who you want to provide for
  • Your marital circumstances change, such as marriage, civil partnership, separation, divorce or your civil partnership is dissolved
  • You are looking to protect assets and minimise tax liabilities
  • You own all or part of a business and you want to create a trust to protect your family’s interests and provide for your children
  • You live in the UK but own overseas property
  • Your permanent residence is not in the UK or you are not a British citizen

How we can help

We will guide you through the process carefully and sensitively, making sure that your wishes are fully understood and recorded. When drafting your Will, our expertise will help you mitigate any Inheritance or Capital Gains Tax. We can also advise on whether it would be useful, for practical reasons or from a tax planning point of view, to create a Trust for the benefit of your beneficiaries.

Let us help you plan ahead and give you the reassurance that your interests and those of your family are properly safeguarded.
