Being organised with the writing of your will is the only way to guarantee your assets go where you want them to go following your death. Many people find they first require a will writing service when they make a significant purchase such as buying their first house or starting their own business; alternatively it may be when you get married or start a family. If you should die intestate (without a will) the law dictates who receives what from any property, savings, life insurance and valuable possessions you own. Making a will can reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax you pay; which will therefore affect how much of your estate goes to those you leave behind. At Slater Heelis our team of wills, trust and probate solicitors will help you protect your assets for the future and for your loved ones. Whether your needs are simple or complex we can help with tax planning, the distribution of your estate and making provisions for your family.
