Wills, Estates, Tax & Trusts
Many people think that a will doesn’t need to be made until later life. However, wills are usually inexpensive yet vital in the management of your affairs should the unforeseen happen, so we recommend you make one as soon as possible for peace of mind. Get in touch with your local solicitors for wills.
Research by the Law Society of England and Wales tells us that 84% of people aged 25-34 do not have an up-to-date will, plus 22% of people over 65 and 42% of those widowed, divorced or separated do not know whether or not their will needs updating. Having no will or a will that is out of date can cause problems if the unfortunate occurs. In order to ensure that your property and assets go to the people, organisations and charities you feel are worthy, you must ensure that you have a will that can be immediately referred to when required.
Our expert wills and trusts solicitors will advise on everything from creating a will to managing trusts and tax planning. You can also appoint guardians for your children, and even make sure that your pets are provided for when you’re gone.
Remember a Charity
We're proud to support the 'Remember a Charity in your will' campaign. You can use your will to look after everything that's important to you, including charitable causes. A gift to a charity in your will does not have to mean large amounts of money as even a small gift can really make a big difference. For further details, please visit www.rememberacharity.org.uk
Documenting your wishes and other relevant information will save your family and loved ones from making
tough decisions at such a difficult time. It will also help your executors, if they are not family or friends,
deal with your funeral plans in the way that you would want, after you have passed.
To help you think about the type of funeral you would like, we have developed this questionnaire. Preparing this now will give you peace of mind. Please download it here.
