Death is inevitable, and for some it comes sooner than later. Unfortunately, nobody knows when their death is near.
By making a will, you can make sure you leave your precious and valuable belongings to those dearest to you after your death. Disputes over the distribution of an estate after a person’s death is not uncommon, and by leaving a will you can make your wishes clear to avoid any potential and costly disputes after your death.
Making a will is simple in most cases, but can be a little more complicated when you have issues like inheritance tax implications to consider.
Our solicitors can help with drafting a will to suit your needs. We also help with inheritance tax considerations and make sure your loved ones benefit fully from what you leave behind to them.
Our fee for drafting a simple will is £100 plus VAT.
