If you require assistance with any probate matter, do not hesitate to contact us on the number at the bottom of the screen, and let us help you through this difficult time.
Our Cambridge solicitors always recommend writing a Will. Below are just a few of the reasons you might want to consider doing so;
While married couples and civil partners will automatically inherit, cohabiting couples do not unless stated in the Will
It is a chance to state who you wish to look after any dependents in the event of your death
You can ensure close friends or important charities do not miss out
With some careful planning it is possible to minimise your Inheritance Tax bill
Once you have written your Will it is important to keep it updated. If you go through a major change in circumstance, such as getting married or divorced, and fail to update the document, it may be deemed invalid.
If you wish to write or update your Will, our Cambridge probate solicitors can help. Call us on the number below or complete the form to the right and one of our team will call you back.
