Our team of specialist wills and probate solicitors are here to provide high-quality legal advice to help you make the right decisions for your will. At Slater Heelis we can facilitate your needs, taking into account all of your personal assets that make up your estate, as well as the necessary tax planning to minimise inheritance tax liability for your beneficiaries. We understand the significance of making provisions for your loved ones, to give you the peace of mind that your assets will go to the right people.
The Importance of a WillIt is strongly advised that you have a will, especially if you have children, you own property or business, or have savings, investments or insurance policies. If you should pass away without a will (intestate), the law will determine who gets your estate. With a will, you ensure that the desired people gain the legal rights to your property, money and possessions.
