Making a will is very important, but is something that a lot of people put off as it is not always comfortable to discuss.
If you die without a will, the law dictates who receives your assets. If you are not married, this means that your children, parents and siblings could inherit your estate instead of an unmarried partner who lives with you. Or, if you are married but have children from a previous relationship, your spouse could inherit your entire estate (depending upon its value) leaving your children without a share.
It is also important to plan ahead to ensure that no more Inheritance Tax is paid than absolutely necessary.
When Should You Make A Will?
In reality, all adults should have a will, but if you fall into any of the categories below you should always consider making a will.
- You have been married (marriage had the effect of making any existing will you have void);
- You have had a baby;
- You have separated or divorced;
- You have purchased a house or other property;
- You have been diagnosed with a serious illness; or
- You are in the early stages of Dementia or Alzheimers disease.
We can arrange to see you or your relative at our office, at home, at hospital, or at a care home or hospice – whichever is most suitable for you, and always ensuring that social distancing rules are properly followed.
Our fees for non-complex wills are:
Single will: £200.00 plus VAT
Couples wills: £300.00 plus VAT
We will take you through a detailed questionnaire which covers all important areas and is designed to avoid challenges to your estate. We can store your original will for you and provide you with copies. This is a free service and ensures that the original document is not misplaced or lost.
