Wills & Executries
As Benjamin Franklin said: “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” We are here to help you regulate your affairs, both to provide you with piece of mind and to assist your family after your death.
Having your wishes set out in a professionally drafted Will is important to ensure your assets pass as you wish them to on your death. Without a Will your assets pass in accordance with the rules of intestate succession, which may not have the outcome you desire. We can advise you on the appointment of Executors, on the best way to ensure your family benefits as you intend and on Inheritance Tax planning.
In our experience, having an appropriately drafted and completed Will in place, makes the administration of your Estate quicker, easier and less expensive.
On the death of a family member, dealing with the administration of their Estate and ensuring that their wishes are fulfilled can be stressful and confusing. We can provide assistance with the entire process no matter the size of the Estate, whether your loved one had a Will or not.
We can take over the day to day administration of the Estate and would obtain all the relevant information on the Estate’s assets. We would also deal with the various legal requirements, including the completion of any Inheritance Tax return and final accounting on behalf of the Executor.
