Our Private Client team comprising of Tim Napier and Adrian Albinson are well able to undertake all aspects of private client work.
When someone dies without making a will, the law prescribes who benefits from that estate. It is important to realise that in the absence of a will, the cohabitee has no automatic rights to any part of a deceased estate: if there are children it will go to them. It is important whenever there is long term cohabitation and you treat each other as though you were married, you should make a will.
By making a will, you can decide what happens to your possessions after death and it is the best way to ensure that family and friends get what you wish them to.
Our work includes the following specialisms:
Wills and living wills
Strategic estate planning
Lasting powers of attorney
Probate and estate administration
Wills and Living Wills
When contemplating about making a will, its a good idea to think about what you would want to include.
- All of your current assets such as money, property, posessions etc?
- Who do you want to benefit from your will?
- Who should look after any children under the age of 18 that you may have?
- Who is going to be your executor? (The person in charge of sorting out your estate and carrying out any wishes you may have after your death.)
We take a particular emphasis on tailoring a will to meet current needs and minimise inheritance tax Cost from only £100 + vat
