Please note due to Covid-19 restrictions, we can prepare a Will and Lasting Power of Attorney without meeting face to face
The purpose of a Will is to ensure that your wishes are fulfilled in the event of your death and your estate is properly distributed. If you are looking for expert advice regarding your will, our specialist will drafting team can help.
Writing your will may seem daunting and can easily be put off, however having a properly drafted and registered Will is one of the most important legal documents to have in place. Without a will, you are leaving your entire estate, finances and assets to the ruling of UK intestacy law, which your family will have no control over.
We have the knowledge and expertise to guide you through the process and ensure you have considered all the options available to you and our experienced team will make sure you are fully aware of all available inheritance tax reliefs and exemptions.
