Most people understand the need to make a will. It is ESSENTIAL for all. Almost as important as making a will is keeping it up to date. Now is an ideal time to make a will or to revise your existing will.
It is not an expensive process, unless matters become complicated.
Our fees for standard wills are:
|Standard single will
|Standard two wills (mirroring each other)
We are able to offer value for money without compromising on service or expertise. You will always have the attention of our firm principal who is a senior solicitor.
Why make a will?
Making a will gives peace of mind because it affords the opportunity to deal with the following elements:
When to revise a will?
- Funeral wishes
- Executors appointment
You choose who will be responsible for administering your estate and giving effect to your wishes. At least 2 and up to 4 is recommended, and we favour 3 - eg - spouse, child (or friend) and a professional.
- Specific legacies (jewellery or family items)
Trusts still have a key role in succession planning in various ways, from looking after pets to providing a house for a partner for life.
When circumstances materially alter it is time to review your will.
It is imperative a will be prepared by a specialist professional.
We are specialists in will drafting, and we will ensure that the wording clearly expresses your wishes. We are able to give guidance on tax issues, property matters and any family issues that may not be straightforward. There are strict requirements as to how a will must be signed and we will ensure everything is correct.
Please contact our firm principal Jonathan Howe to make an appointment to discuss your wishes at a Covid-19 secure face-to-face meeting.
