Professional Will Writing Services

Many of us will have considered making a Will, yet only 30% of the population has done so. Even the most sensible of us often think that making a Will is something to do ‘when I’m older’ or that making a Will is somehow morbid. Do you know that if you don’t have a Will to ensure your wishes are carried out, a Law from 1925 decides who inherits your possessions after you die? It’s hard to imagine that a decree that is almost a century old reflects how you would like your family or friends to be treated. Tens of thousands of people every year have their bereavement compounded by the fact that their loved ones left no clear instructions on how their estate should be dealt with in the event of their death, and face court battles and large expenses to try and solve the problem.

Having a Will means you can:

  • Have peace of mind that you have chosen someone who you personally trust to act as Executor, follow your wishes and ensure they are carried out.
  • Set out your funeral wishes (no matter how straight-forward or unusual they are!).
  • Appoint the right guardians to have parental responsibility of your dependents or children under the age of 18.
  • Decide who should receive particular items that have a sentimental value, rather than all of your personal possessions being treated the same way.
  • Provide for friends or charities or other organisations in your Will, which would not benefit if you died intestate (i.e. die without leaving a Will).
  • Ensure adequate provision for those financially dependent on you.
  • Help prevent disputes within the family by making your wishes clear.
  • Help with minimising tax liabilities after your death in some circumstances.
  • Make special provisions for children who may have health, matrimonial or financial problems, and ensure that the wrong people do not get their hands on your money.
