Last Will and Testament

When planning for your future, be it in the long or short term, a Will is an essential tool that should be used to its fullest effect. Even those of us that think we have the most straightforward of lives can benefit from a professionally drafted Will. Amongst other things Wills can:-

  • Give you peace of mind that family and loved ones will be aware of your wishes in the event of your death.
  • Make provision for the care of your children and provide financial security into their adulthood.
  • Allow the people you trust the most to carry out your wishes and administer your estate.
  • Ensure that only those people that you intend to will benefit from your estate.

In addition to the above Wills are indispensable if:-

  • You are in a relationship or marriage where there are children from previous relationships.
  • There is discord within your family.
  • You have parents or children suffering from a disability.
  • You wish to protect certain assets within your estate or minimise your liability to Inheritance Tax.
