Reasons why you should have a Will
- Certainty – The death of a loved one can be one of the most distressing times anyone can experience. Making a will shows that you have thought about who should inherit your assets which will go a long way in avoiding disputes among the people you care about.
- Avoid disputes – Protect your assets for the future generations. We can help you with inheritance tax and estate planning to ensure as far as possible that the assets you have worked hard for are preserved.
- Protection – Appointing Executors shows that you have considered carefully who should administer your estate and any ongoing trusts. Furthermore, after your death they have legal right to handle your assets to a large degree. If you do not leave a will your next of kin have no powers at all until they apply to court for the grant of representation.
- Blended Families – You may be married a second time and have children from your first marriage. We can help you to provide for your second spouse but ensure your assets move on to your children ultimately.
- Guardians – If you have minor children you will want to ensure your children live with people you trust and who will bring up your children in the way you would wish.
- Foreign Property – If you own property in a European Union country there has been a significant change to the European Regulations which may affect how your property passes on death.
