Our team takes the time to understand the extent of your assets, the people who matter most to you, and the provisions you would like to leave. We’ll advise on the best and most tax-efficient ways of dividing your estate. It’s your Will, and it must reflect your wishes in the way that you want. It can be as straightforward or as detailed as you require. We are here to help, advise and ensure the Will is clearly drafted on your instructions so that you can be confident that your wishes will be carried out on your death.
We are able to draft the Will best for you whether that is simply to make sure your long term partner is provided for on your death or the grandchildren receive a legacy to remember you by. These are things that would not happen if you were to die intestate.
Maybe you are worried about potential future care costs and losing the property you worked so hard to keep throughout your life? Or maybe you are concerned your spouse may remarry and your children will not inherit your family home on her death? We can help.
Threats against the majority of people’s main asset, the family home, have recently become more numerous, with reports of people’s homes controversially being used as a vehicle to cover the costs of providing elderly care.
This vulnerable asset can likewise be lost as a direct consequence of the remarriage of a surviving spouse.
In the adage that prevention is better than the cure – and with some careful planning and management – a significant proportion of these family assets can be safeguarded from such threats through the use of Trusts within your Will. Please call us today where one of our helpful solicitors will welcome an informal chat to see how we can best help you.
