Making a Will is a serious affair. When the Will comes into effect it will determine what happens to your property on your death, and a badly drawn Will can cause a lot of misery to your loved ones. For this reason it is important that your Will is drafted by a specialist and is kept up to date both with your wishes and the latest legal developments.
At Healys LLP we understand the natural reluctance you may feel towards making a Will. Our sympathetic solicitors are here to make your life easier and offer straightforward advice to help you through the process.
There are a lot of misconceptions regarding wills and the law, the most prominent of which is that on death your estate passes directly to your spouse. This is not necessarily true. Additionally, many people think that if they die without a Will (and are unmarried and without children) then their estate would pass only to a parent with whom they have contact and not to one from whom they are estranged. Again, this is not true.
We are here to make your life easier and to take the stress out of completing your Will. We want you to leave our offices in the knowledge that your wishes are recorded, your estate structured efficiently for tax purposes and that you can sleep at night knowing that your affairs are looked after.
If you need a solicitor to make a Will call us today for free advice on 01273 685 888 / 020 7822 4000 or email email@example.com.
