Why should I write a will?

September, 2012 TSG_PTIMG_0000_Will

Regardless of your age, everyone should consider having a will professionally drawn. A surprisingly high number of people die without leaving a will.

This can cause enormous problems for the family of the deceased. The issue of your will is by its very nature, a solemn topic. Often people shy away from the issue of preparing a will and in a lot of cases simply never get around to doing so.

If you want peace of mind in the knowledge that your partner/spouse, family, friends and elderly loved ones what you intend them to receive upon your death then you should make an appointment to meet with a member of our wills and probate team. We can then draft your will to meet your needs.

Not only does the issue of who is to inherit need to be addressed but careful inheritance tax planning is also vital. Our team can advise on all of these issues.

It is also important to review your will as your circumstances change. For example: the birth of a child, when you’re financial circumstances change or when you get divorced.
