Do I need a Will?

Everyone needs a Will. Nobody likes thinking about their own death, but having a Will puts you in control and can save money and avoid costly disputes. If you die without a Will your estate will be distributed according to a legislated formula which may not be in accordance with your wishes.

I have a Will, do I need to update it?

You should review your Will every 2 to 3 years or after every major life event such as:

  • Getting married or divorced
  • Having children
  • Buying and selling property
  • Starting a business
  • Death of your proposed executor or beneficiary

We canĀ help advise whether your Will is valid and whether it should be updated.

Why should I use a solicitor?

Drafting a Will is more than deciding who gets what. You need careful planning and consideration. We can provide tailored advice to suit your specific circumstances, especially if you have children, are in a second marriage, are a company director or if you have more complex estate planning needs, such as testamentary trusts
