Writing a Will is something we advise everyone to do, no matter your stage in life. We all have people and causes which we care about and want to see provided for, and a well-considered and carefully written Will is the best way to ensure that happens. Our experienced team of Wills solicitors are well placed to talk you through this process with care and sensitivity, with our trademark attention to detail and comprehensive approach.
A Will puts the power in your hands to decide what you want to happen with your home, possessions and your assets, including pension funds and insurances. It means you can name who you want to be the executor or administrator who will ensure your wishes are carried out. And if you have young children, a Will allows you to take the step of naming who you would like to act as guardians should the worst happen.
If you die without a valid will, you leave your family with potential difficulties in sorting out your affairs. They will be required to share out your estate according to certain rules known as the rules of intestacy – which may not accord to your wishes. There’s also increasing numbers of DIY Wills being deemed invalid, so it’s best to leave this important process to experienced Solicitors.
