Making a Will is one of the most important things you will ever do.
By making a Will you can provide peace of mind and security for your loved ones by leaving them the assets you have worked so hard for during your lifetime.
For some, deciding who should benefit from their estate is easy, for others this can be more complicated particularly if there are children from previous relationships or vulnerable people to think about.
We’ll provide you with clear advice and a tailor made Will you fully understand, so you can be confident that your loved ones are provided for.
What would happen if I didn't make a Will?
Your estate will pass under the rules of intestacy, usually to your closest living relative(s). The only way to avoid this is by making a Will.
What are Executors?
Executors are the people appointed by you in your will to deal with your affairs after you have died.
Can my potential Beneficiaries also be my Executors?
Yes. However, a beneficiary or a spouse of a beneficiary must never be a witness to a will from which they will benefit.
