Everyone should have a Will regardless of the value of their assets and even more so if you own your own home, have children or own a business.
Whatever your circumstances may be, I aim to offer a professional friendly service to give you the best advice, tailored to your individual requirements and all in the comfort of your own home at a time to suit you.
A will brings security, reassurance and above all peace of mind – not just for you, but for all those who depend on you, either now or in the future.
Why make a Will? Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. If you have not made a valid Will your property will pass according to the Law of Intestacy. This may not be what you want and may not actually take care of those closest to you.
If you are SINGLE you will want your estate divided between family and friends of your choosing and in the shares you want.
If you are married do not assume your spouse will get everything. They may not. Also, if this is not your first marriage you should be thinking about what happens if they do get everything and any children from your previous marriage/s are overlooked.
If you are co-habiting do not assume your partner will get anything. The “Common Law Wife/Husband” is a myth and has no legal standing. Failure to make proper Wills could leave your partner having to fight for what should rightly be theirs at a time when they are trying to cope with the loss of a loved one.
I offer a full Will writing service which includes visiting you in your home to take full instructions for your Will. I prepare a draft copy which is sent to you for your consideration and comment. Each Will is drafted to suit your individual needs.
I then revisit you at your property for the signing of the original Will and act as one of your witnesses as required. Plus, I also provide a document/storage facility to give you free storage of your will whilst also giving you with a photocopy of the original Will for your information and safekeeping.
You may need to include a Trust in your Will. This could be because you want to protect your half share of the property you live in. You may want to provide for young children or have a disabled beneficiary.
You may want to save tax or simply protect your assets in some way after you die.
We can advise you fully about your circumstances and recommend which Will Trust would be best for you and your family.
