You probably already know how important it is to have a will in place.
- Do you have a will that's years out of date?
- Is writing a will just one of those things you'll get round to doing one day?
There's no crystal ball in life. Imagine the impact on your family if they have to deal with your financial affairs while grieving for your loss. And all because you didn't spend a few hours putting your wishes down in writing.
Of course you can buy cheap wills online, but when you've got significant assets, you'll want the peace of mind knowing that every angle is covered and has been looked over by legal professionals. We can put you in touch with a legal expert to provide tailored advice on your will.
Leaving behind your legacy
When you've worked hard all your life, it's only natural to want those you've left behind to benefit as much as possible.
One of the most important parts of writing a will is naming an executor (responsible for administering your estate when you're no longer here). We can put you in touch with expert lawyers to provide advice on the criteria on appointing an executor.
Preparing for the inevitable
Thinking about a time when we're no longer here is unpleasant and it's understandable why so many people keep delaying writing a will. 80% of British adults believe all adults should be required to have a will yet only 36% have actually written one.*
You will pass away one day, so you should make sure the aftermath is as smooth and hassle-free for your loved ones as possible. And make sure they get everything you want them to.
Don't assume that if you die without a will everything will be OK, there are clearly defined legal procedures which must be followed; these often mean the people closest to you miss out on all or part of what you'd like them to have. Passing away without a will is called dying 'intestate'.
Contact us now and don't put off writing a will any longer because none of us knows what the future holds.
