Over two thirds of the population in the United Kingdom die without having made a valid Will. By making a Will you can ensure that your estate passes to those whom you would wish to benefit. As Specialist Will writing solicitors we can help you in writing a Will that could go a long way to securing the financial future of your family.

Planning for your death is an important part of your life. It isn’t something that any of us like to think about but to ensure that your loved ones are looked after you have to think about your plans for the future, beyond your life. Our specialist Wills and Probate solicitors can offer invaluable advice during this whole process.

If you die without leaving a valid Will then your estate will pass in accordance with the Intestacy Rules. This could mean that your estate ends up in the hands of distant relatives, who you may never have even met. If no relatives can be found, your estate could end up in the hands of the Crown. This is the main reason why you should be looking for will solicitors right now. Having that safety net that ensures your assets are left with the loved ones and family members that you want them to be left to, rather than being left in the hands of the intestacy rules.

A Will can also be a useful tool in Inheritance Tax planning. Since October 2007, changes to Inheritance Tax legislation have meant that, for many people, they can now execute a relatively straightforward Will without having to worry about Inheritance Tax.

This change rendered the use of trusts within many Wills as unnecessary. However, the use of trusts within a Will can still have advantages and trusts are a useful vehicle for preserving wealth and ensuring it passes into the hands of those whom you would wish to receive it.

Depending on your personal circumstances we can offer advice as to which type is best as you begin writing a Will. We can help you set up single Wills, Mirror or Living Wills, as well as Wills with donations to charity. Your Will is specific to your unique circumstances and needs, catering for those wishing to split shared belongings and assets along with a partner, for those seeking a solid financial future for their children, or for those with individual wealth that they wish to pass on to charity.
