Why it is important to make a Will
It is important for you to make a will whether or not you consider you have many possessions. Including property or much money. It is important to make a will because:-

if you die without a will, there are certain rules which dictate how the money, property or possessions should be allocated. This may not be the way that you would have wished your money and possessions to be distributed;

unmarried partners and partners who have not registered a civil partnership cannot inherit from each other unless there is a will, so the death of one partner may create serious financial problems for the remaining partner; and


if you have children, you will need to make a will so that arrangements for the children can be made if either one or both parents die; for example, to appoint a Guardian.

It may be possible to reduce the amount of tax payable on the inheritance if advice is taken in advance and a will is made. If your circumstances have changed, it is important that you make a will to ensure that your money and possessions are distributed according to your wishes. For example, if you have separated and your ex-partner now lives with someone else, you may want to change your will. If you are married or enter into a registered civil partnership, this will make any previous will you have made invalid.

Our charges are very competitive and start from as little as 125 for a single will and 175 for a double will.
