Wills and Probate

Research has shown that one third of the population has not made a Will.  Most people assume that all their possessions pass automatically on their death to their Spouse, Partner or members of the family.  This is not necessarily the case.

Having a Will drawn up is the best way to ensure that your wishes and the arrangements that you wish to make for your Estate are carried out after your death.  A Will also protects your loved ones and family and reduces the financial worry for them during what is already a traumatic and emotional time.

If there is no Will the Estate will pass under the Intestacy Rules and if the person who has died has an estate valued at more than £250,000, the spouse or civil partner will inherit all of their personal belongings and the first £250,000 of the Estate, and then half of the remaining estate with what is left being divided between any children. This rule does not apply to long term or 'Common Law' Partners.  By planning ahead and making a Will during your lifetime means that you can ensure that your Estate is distributed properly.  Our experienced team can advise you on the best way to preserve family's assets and wealth.  Our Private Client team can also provide advice on the best way to minimise Inheritance tax liability and also preserve your family's wealth.  We are also experienced in advising clients in challenging an Estate.
