Planning your estate and making a professional Will is one of the most important things you will ever do. By protecting your hard earned wealth and assets, and putting them in order, you can protect those people that matter to you the most.
Whatever your circumstances, to die Intestate (without having made a Will) leaves your loved ones in an uncertain and stressful position. Putting your affairs in order is one of the most important tasks you are likely to undertake.
But making sure that you have a Will is not enough; it has to be the right type – one that is professionally drafted to take into account your wishes, and your personal and financial circumstances.
A professionally prepared “Will” can allow you to:
State who you wish to inherit your estate;
Make specific legacies to family or friends or gifts to favourite charities;
Appoint suitable guardians for your young children rather than leaving the choice to the Courts;
Set up maintenance trusts for children to protect their inheritance until an age chosen by you;
Ensure your children’s (or other beneficiaries) inheritance, should your surviving partner re-marry;
Safeguard your share of the property from being sold to pay for the survivor’s future care fees, so protecting assets to leave to your family;
Minimise the Inheritance Tax liability on your estate, so giving more to your chosen beneficiaries, rather than to the Taxman.
Get in touch and we’ll arrange to come and see you, discuss your requirements in more detail and take it from there.
