Wills and Probate
No one likes to contemplate their own mortality, yet the making of a will is the most important and caring action that you can take to ensure that effect is given to your wishes after your death. Timely and confident advice may also limit any liability for tax that your estate may have to bear, leaving more of your property to your family.
The period immediately following bereavement is always a difficult time for those left behind. In addition to the natural grief that anyone feels, the prospect of having to deal with the finalisation of a loved one's affairs can appear daunting and add to the sense of loss. The position is all the more complicated if there is no will. It is at times like these that you need the reassurance of sympathetic yet sound advice. Five of our solicitors deal with the drafting of wills and the administration of the estates of people after their deaths, whether there is a will or not.
We can offer amongst others, the following services:-
- Preparation of wills and inheritance tax planning
