Wills

If you want to make a will, then we are able to do this for you.  If you are elderly or infirm and cannot come into the office, we are able to come and see you.

Wills set out what you want to happen when you die and who you want to leave your money and property to. They can also be used to appoint guardians for children, if they are under the age of 18 when you die and can be used as a tool to save inheritance tax and nursing home fees.

Many people die without making a will and this can cause problems for people left behind.  Under English law, for example, husbands and wives do not automatically inherit everything if one of them dies and step children are likely not to inherit anything, unless you include them in your will.  It is also important to follow certain procedures when making a will or the will may be invalid.

The advice we can give you and work that we can carry out on your behalf includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Advising on the contents of a will and the effect of them
  • Making a will
  • Changing an existing will
