Why Make a Will?

It's easy to put off making a will. However, if you die without one your assets may be distributed according to the law rather than your wishes. If you are not married then your parents or siblings could inherit rather than your cohabitee.

If you have children from a previous relationship you should determine how much of your estate they should receive.

You should plan ahead to avoid paying more Inheritance Tax than is necessary.

DIY wills can lead to many problems. We have successfully challenged a number of these on behalf of relatives who were not included.

If you have been diagnosed with a serious illness, or you are in the early stages of Dementia or Alzheimers you should make a will.

If you are separating or divorcing or if you have just had a baby you should consider making a will.

We can visit you or your relative at Home, Hospital, Care Home or Hospice.
