Having a will in place is essential.
Even by having in place a simple Will it enables you to do such things as choose your executors, the guardians of any minor children surviving you and importantly to avoid the rules of intestacy, which are the rules that decide how your estate is divided in the event that you die without a will.
However, often a simple is just not enough.
If you have children from a previous relationship or vulnerable or disabled beneficiaries, a simple Will could result in those beneficiaries being left exposed or even worse, being left without any inheritance at all. A simple will can provide little protection for your beneficiaries.
In addition to that, if you have been widowed or own a business or a share of a business, your will can be tailored to ensure that any eligible inheritance tax reliefs are captured. Simple wills tend not to be tailored to meet an individual’s particular needs.
If any of these circumstances apply to you then we would be delighted to meet you on a no obligation basis to discuss your circumstances and requirements.
