With expert advice, making a Will is normally quite straightforward….

and as one of the leading Wills and Probate solicitors in Northamptonshire and Leicestershire, we provide that expert advice.

 

Sadly, more than two thirds of people do not have a Will, often based on assumptions about who will benefit. Without a Will, you will be relying on the statutory law at the time of your death to decide what should happen to your hard earned assets.

Why make a Will?

Making a Will can provide you with peace of mind, knowing that in the event of your death your wishes will be carried out.

Your assets can be administered in the way you would want, setting out important choices such as your funeral arrangements, guardians for minor (young) children, and any gifts you wish to make.

Reducing tax liabilities

When property prices increase, more and more people find that they are worth more than they thought and that their estates will be subject to Inheritance Tax.

Making a Will can enable you to plan for matters in a way that reduces the liability for Inheritance Tax.

Reviewing your Will

The beauty of a Will is that you can change it whenever you want to. The chances are that if your Will is more than 5 years old, it may need updating.

You may find your family growing, you may find friends have come and gone or your own circumstances have changed.

Examples of what falls outside of the description ‘standard’ include (but are not limited to) having multiple beneficiaries, leaving multiple gifts, advice on trusts, and inheritance tax advice.  At the time of the meeting you will be informed if additional charges are likely to be incurred.
