Wills

Making a will is a fundamental part of any financial or estate planning. By making a will it is possible to ensure that an estate passes in accordance with wishes upon a person’s death rather than the rules of intestacy which would apply if they were to die without making a will.

A carefully drafted will can also achieve the following:

  • Protect and preserve assets for the benefit of a spouse, children and future generations, often through the use of trusts
  • Provide for a spouse from a second or further marriage but protect assets for the benefit of children from an earlier marriage
  • Maximise inheritance tax reliefs which may be available on the value of a business or agricultural property

In producing wills we take time to discuss family background, details of assets, aims and how best to achieve them. This ensures that a will is prepared in accordance with specific needs.

The majority of wills that are prepared are charged on a fixed fee basis which provides the reassurance of knowing in advance what the cost is.
