Making a Will
Our will writing solicitors are highly experienced and make the writing of a will pretty simple. Arguably a will is one of the most important documents that you will ever make, and no one should be without, especially if you have a partner and/or children. Writing a will is a guaranteed way to ensure your loved ones are looked after properly in the way you would want to inherit your estate.If you have no relatives at all, any property will be left to the Crown whereas you may have wanted it to be left to a close friend or to a charity.
We can help writing your own will, changing a will, writing mirrored wills or contesting a will, contact our team for full advice and support.
Wills and Probate Law
Whether or not a person has made a will, when they die their estate still needs to be sorted out. In most cases this means that someone will have to apply for a grant of representation. This is called a grant of probate where there is a will. Or if there is not a will in place a grant of letters of administration comes into play. Where a person only owns assets jointly or where their assets held in their sole name total less than £5000 a grant of representation will usually be unnecessary.
Trusts and Financial and Tax Planning
Setting up a trust will usually come into play when a person is looking at a tax efficient way of administering your property and providing for your loved ones after you pass. There are many different types of trust so it is important to take expert legal advice on what type of trust will suit you and your families circumstances best, our wills and probate solicitors are highly experienced in the setting up of trusts, will writing and power of attorney.
