Why You Need A Will

Four reasons why you need a will

It’s easy to make a will – and having one in place will save your family unnecessary distress at an already difficult time.

  • A will makes it much easier for your family or friends to sort everything out when you die – without a will the process can be more time consuming and stressful.
  • If you don’t write a will, everything you own will be shared out in a standard way defined by the law – which isn’t always the way you might want.
  • A will can help reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax that may be payable on the value of the property and money you leave behind.
  • Writing a will is especially important if you have children or other family who depend on you financially, or if you want to leave something to people outside your immediate family.

We will make sure that your will is legally valid and that you have thought about everything that needs to be considered.

We can also act as the executors of your will if you don’t have family or friends with the time and experience to carry out this function. We are happy to accept appointments as executors either as a firm, as individuals within the firm, or jointly with your friends or family.

If you need somewhere safe to keep your will, we offer free secure fire proof storage.
