Make a Will

Why prepare a Will?

Many people are not aware that dying without a properly written Will can result in their estate being distributed in ways that they neither expected nor desired.   DIY Wills and Wills “bought off the shelf” may not be sufficiently clear or validly created so it is always best to seek legal advice to consider circumstances fully and to have your Will properly drawn up.  The last thing a bereaved family needs is difficulties arising from an invalid or contested Will.

Leaving a Will is not just about to whom you leave your estate .  You can choose who will look after your affairs after death by appointing an executor.  It is possible to make arrangements for children should you die while they are young and also appoint guardians to look after their daily needs.  You may wish to establish a trust to protect assets being left to young children or other vulnerable or incapacitated beneficiaries.  You may also wish to set out funeral instructions.

Having a Will in place eases the administration process and guides family and friends in fulfilling the wishes of the deceased during a difficult time.
