Dealing with an estate following someone's death can be complex. If a well drafted Will exists, then the legal process is much more straightforward for your loved ones, and avoids any potential conflict or further pressure during an already difficult time. Our expert lawyers provide practical and clear guidance designed to ensure you make the decisions that are right for you.
Our legal experts can write a simple Will for you costing as little as £100 + VAT.
Without a Will you have no control over who will inherit your money and property. Inheritance laws can be complicated, and without a will there may be a number of unintended consequences. For example:
As well as the assurance that all financial and inheritance decisions have been made, within a Will you can also name a guardian for your children and could even save on inheritance tax.
We ensure that you receive straight forward, friendly, and practical advice on how to effectively put a Will in place - with no confusing legal jargon.
Drafting a Will can give you peace of mind by ensuring your family is provided for should the worst happen.

If there are no children, then it will pass to other beneficiaries in equal shares. When a mirror will is made, the makers of these wills acknowledge that the surviving spouse/partner has the right to change his or her will.
