Making a Will creates certainty, reduces worry and gives you the peace of mind of knowing exactly how your money, property and possessions will be dealt with after your death. Making a Will is also usually the first step to take in structuring your affairs in order to minimise your liability for Inheritance Tax.
One of the major decisions we made in our Wills department a few years ago was a commitment to write our Wills in good clear English, with little or no legal jargon (most of the time it isn't necessary!). We like our clients to be able to understand what we have prepared for them without having to reach for the dictionary or look things up on Google.
We also store Wills free of charge once they have been signed and would send you a photocopy of the signed Will for your own records.
Our advice will cover:
We also always work on the basis that we will only do the work that you want us to do, without pressuring you to take up services that you don't want or need right now. Our transparency with costs and pricing also means that we will only ever charge you for what we do - rather than taking percentage of what you inherit.
