Making a Will
We all know it’s important to make a Will. Yet 70% of us haven’t yet done so. This
can lead to unforeseen difficulties and distress to loved ones when we’re gone.
Find out today how our Wills Solicitors can help you.
Why should you make a Will?
- Making a will gives you control over what happens
to your property after you die
- To die without making a will is called "intestacy". If this happens,
strict legal rules apply which decides the distribution of
- Often this may not reflect how you would like things done
- If you are married and have children, for instance, financial limits apply
on how much your husband or wife can receive. It could mean that they retain
the family home, but do not receive sufficient funds to afford to live there
- If you are unmarried and have a partner the
intestacy rules will not recognise that partnership

Providing for your family in the future
We provide advice every day to clients about making Wills. Sometimes this discussion
is more difficult than at other times. An elderly lady approached our solicitors
after she had been diagnosed with a terminal illness. She had a large family and
wanted to leave a little to everyone. We gave advice on ensuring her disabled son
was properly provided for whilst ensuring the rest of the family and particularly
her grandchildren each had a small legacy.
We had several delicate conversations with the client and then quickly produced
a Will which was easy to understand and which gave her complete peace of mind.
