Will Writing – What to consider when making a Will

What do I need to consider when making a Will? Take the time with one of our experienced Solicitors to ensure your wishes and assets are left properly to others. The process of writing a Will can be completed quite quickly for standard Wills and including initial advice and guidance, confirming your wishes, drafting and signing.

Everyone knows that they should have a Will, but you may be surprised to learn that over 70% of the adult population in the UK has not got around to making one. Even more surprising is that of the 30% that do have a Will in place this is often out of date, or will not achieve what they actually intended it to do!!

All of this means it is very important that we speak to you about your Will and estate planning arrangements.

We provide simple yet effective solutions for all your needs whatever your situation and budget, from basic Wills to Business Succession strategies.

Estate planning, wealth preservation or succession planning, is the process by which an individual or family arranges the transfer of assets in anticipation of death. An estate plan aims to preserve the maximum amount of wealth possible for the intended beneficiaries and flexibility for the individual prior to death, with the application of Wills, Trusts and other legal products.

  • Who will you appoint/trust to look after your children under 18 years (called Guardians)?
  • Who will you appoint/trust to carry out the terms of your Will (called Executors)?
  • Who do you name to benefit from your estate (called Beneficiaries)?
  • What do you give away and to whom? including gifts of specific items or fixed sums of money (called Legacies)
  • Will there be Inheritance Tax (IHT) on the estate?
  • Should you create a Trusts to help preserve wealth for future generations, protect against residential care costs or help vulnerable or disabled beneficiaries?
