What is a Will?

A Will is a legal document that sets out your wishes and instructions as to the way your property is to be distributed upon your death. It is also your opportunity to nominate who you wish to have the day to day control over the administration of your estate, and most importantly, who you wish to nominate as guardian for any minor children you may have.

Over 60% of the adult population in Great Britain do not have a will. But making a will need not be complicated or difficult. We have a wealth of experience in this area and will help and guide you with any issues that you are concerned about.

Why is writing a will important?

Very simply if you do not write a precise and clear will, your assets may not go to your chosen beneficiaries. If you die without a will you are known as dying intestate and your assets and possessions will be distributed under the law of intestacy, which are rules imposed by statute as to who inherits and in what order. Unfortunately, this means that people who you never intended to benefit from your estate may, and those you did intend to benefit may not. Making a will is not expensive and gives you peace of mind and certainty that your wishes will be followed.
