It is always important to plan for the future and making a will is essential if you want to ensure that your property is distributed in the way you wish after your death
An incorrectly drafted will can cause major problems for your family after your death and therefore it is important to take legal advice prior to drafting your will.
Together with the legal formalities of preparing your will, we can also advise you on other aspects that need to be considered. Inheritance tax planning, for example, is vital for those who want to maximise the amount passing to their beneficiaries and minimise the impact of tax on their estate. In addition, we can advise you on lifetime financial planning, such as the creation of a family trust.
We also deal with the administration of estates, whether or not there is a will. We appreciate that this can be a very emotional time for those who have lost a loved one and we are accustomed to the family issues which can arise.
We have extensive experience in advising elderly clients and can arrange home visits if necessary to discuss wills or the preparation of a power of attorney.
Our aim is to ensure that your wealth (great or small) goes exactly where you want it to go in the event of your death and that at a difficult and stressful time for the family the estate is administered efficiently and with sensitivity.
