Making or renewing a will

Making or renewing a Will gives you peace of mind in controlling your affairs and everyday finances by making clear your final wishes.

Our experienced friendly advisers are on hand to help you to make or renew a Will at face-to-face meetings using everyday language.



Reasons to make a will:-


· Not all of your estate automatically passes to your spouse

· You have just got married

· You have children who would need to be looked after

· You are not married to your partner

· You are getting divorced


· You own property

· You have come into money

· You think you may have to pay Inheritance Tax

· You wish to avoid causing legal and financial complications for family and friends


 When making a will you decide:


· Who will be the Executors who will sort out your affairs

· Who will care for your children aged under 18

· Who will receive heirlooms or other specific items of property

· Who will receive the rest of your money and upon what conditions

· Your funeral arrangements




We offer a fixed fee for most straightforward Wills and realistic estimates if you need more complex advice for instance on Inheritance Tax.
