Wills and Probate
It is very important that your assets such as your house and savings are distributed after your death according to your wishes. Making a valid Will is the only way your loved ones and friends will receive exactly what you intend to leave them.
Our experts will help you plan what to include in your Will and advise on basic Inheritance Tax implications. We can also help when someone dies without making a Will. They are said to be "intestate" and the deceased person's property is shared among surviving relatives according to the rules of intestacy. In the rare event that a Will is disputed, we try to ensure that the dispute is dealt with as quickly and effectively as possible. Our Wills and Probate Department have many years expertise in many areas including:
- Administration of Estates
- Contentious Probate
- Creation of Trusts
- Drafting and Advising on Lasting Powers of Attorney
