A staggering 60% of adults die intestate - that is, they die without making a Will. Therefore decisions about their money and property may be taken by people unconnected with their family, and unaware of any particular wishes they may have had about its distribution.
Furthermore, the Intestacy Rules do not provide for people who are unrelated by marriage or blood, so making a will is particularly important for single people and all unmarried couples.
Why let this situation arise, when it's so simple to call on the expertise of Collings to put your mind at rest?
Inheritance tax liability is also an important consideration when drafting a will in order to reduce the tax payable on death. Our specialist Lymm solicitors have many years experience in this complex field and will be able to provide full help and advice.
Our specialist wills team can assist you with writing a Will to outline how you'd like your estate and assets distributed in the event of your passing. You can also state your wishes for a burial or cremation, giving you complete peace of mind that your wishes are being carried out after death and that your legacy is being passed down exactly as you have specified.
The Wills and Probate service we offer includes dealing with:
Burial and cremation wishes
Estate administration and distribution
Inheritance tax and claims
As well as:
If your situation is not as straight-forward because one or more of your family members is disputing the validity or content of a Will, our dedicated contentious probate team can assist you during this difficult time. We have a lot of experience in dealing with disputes between beneficiaries and can help you resolve any issues if you've been appointed as an Executor.
