Writing a Will


Wills set out what should happen to your assets, from money to property, after death. Without one, your estate may fall into the wrong hands, or your family may be left facing lengthy and expensive legal battles to determine where assets should go.

Wills are not solely the reserve of the elderly – if you have any children or other dependents, or you are married or in a long-term relationship and would wish your partner to receive certain assets in the event of your death, it is vital to draw up a will as soon as possible.

Badly written or incorrectly worded wills are likely invalid and could lead to disputes, and a will that fails to take into account all of your assets, property and anything else will lead to problems too.

Our thorough approach means every box is ticked and there will be no expensive and painful legal surprises for your loved ones when you pass away.

What is included in a will?

A will ensures your possessions and property are left in the hands of your loved ones, as well as providing clarity on practical matters, such as:

  • Who should look after your children
  • Plans for residential care and inheritance tax planning
  • Assets for your family and future generations
  • Trusted individuals you would like to handle the administrative side of dealing with your property and possessions
  • Charitable contributions

If you die without a will, the intestacy rules will decide who will receive your property and possessions and may result in them being given to those you don’t wish to inherit, leaving your family’s future out of your hands.

Changing your will

Creating a will is not a once-and-for-all affair. You can alter it as often as you wish to reflect changes in your needs and circumstances. As your life progresses, it is important to review your will to ensure everything is up-to-date and correct. Marriage can revoke a will, while the arrival of a new child or the death of an intended executor may require changes to be made.
