Wills and Inheritance Planning
It is, of course, important to consider what will become of your wealth and assets after you pass away. Many people have the intention to draw up, or update, their Will but never get around to it. A quick call to Solicitor Direct will take this weight off your mind.
We are able to produce a Will for you over the phone with the minimum of fuss and time, for a very competitive cost. You also have the peace of mind that you are dealing with a Professional and experience service. Below are some things that we think you should consider when you want to make a will:
Should you die without a will, there are certain rules which dictate how your estate (that is money, property and personal items) should be allocated. This may not be the way that when alive you would have wished them to be distributed. A Will makes sure any gifts go to the people, or organizations you want.
You will be able to leave money to your favourite Charity, tax free.
Unmarried cohabiting couples (whether they are the same sex or not) will not usually inherit from each other unless there is a will, so the death of one partner may create serious financial problems for the remaining partner.
Married couples with children under 18 should also consider what arrangements they want to make if either one or both of them die. You can appoint one or more individuals to act as guardian(s) for your children.
Unmarried couples with children under 18 should also consider what arrangements they want to make if either one or both of them die. It is even more important for unmarried couples to make provision for their children.
It may be possible to reduce the amount of tax payable on any inheritance.
If you have a Will make sure it is up to date, as you may need to alter it.
