Wills and Probate Solicitors
Very often a relationship breakdown is a trigger for you to think about protecting your loved ones in the event of your death or serious illness.
We can quickly and simply prepare a Will on your behalf which will not only ensure your loved ones receive an inheritance, but can also appoint guardians for any minor children.
You may also need specialist tax planning advice when making your Will, and we can help with that too.
It can also be wise to consider giving Power of Attorney to a trusted relative or friend in the event of you becoming incapable of managing your own affairs due to accident or illness.
Your spouse may not inherit everything you own if you do not have a Will, other people including your children may have a claim too, and this can cause serious problems in the event of your death.
Cohabitees in particular need to be aware that their partner is not their next of kin without a Will, and may receive nothing at all from their estate.
As a rough guide, we usually charge £180 plus VAT for a basic Will, but please check with our office first or find more details on our Fees & Funding page.
