Wills & Estate Planning

Writing a Will is so much more than simply getting your affairs in order. They ensure a number of things, including: your wealth passes to the people you want it to; your children have appropriate guardians appointed to look after them; your specific funeral wishes are explained; and that, where appropriate, you pay as little tax possible. This ultimately means that your loved ones have to worry less about, and receive more from, your Estate. So, why wouldn’t you write a Will?  

We strongly recommend you write a Will if any of the following apply to you:-

  • You own property;
  • You have children under the age of 18 years;
  • You have specific funeral wishes;
  • Your Estate is likely to be taxable;
  • You are living with a partner but you are not married or in a civil partnership;
  • You have a complex family setup, such as second marriage and/or step-children;
  • You want to make provisions for friends, charities or other organisations; or
  • You want to prevent a particular person from inheriting from your Estate.

We prepare Wills on a fixed fee basis with no hidden costs involved. We also offer a free, no obligation, Will consultation to discuss your needs and personal circumstances. Contact us today if you would like to book an appointment with one of our specialists.

I wanted to personally drop you a note to pass on a huge thank you to Jade for all of her hard work, attention to detail and a genuine human touch that’s been so appreciated. From the moment I met Jade, she stood out from all of the other solicitors I had met and spoken to. In such a difficult time, she was the only one that showed real human care and empathy and made us feel at ease. She came across as so attentive and knowledgable - we felt like we were in really good hands from the start.

The matter has been going on for some time and I have every confidence that everything is and will be ok because Jade is looking after it. She has been so approachable and understanding yet factual and logical - it’s not often you come across someone working in this field who has these combined qualities.

Thank you very much for your handling of my father's estate. The last few years of my father's life were filled with worry and anxiety so your professional, efficient and straightforward 'can do' approach to the task have been especially appreciated.
