Every year in Britain thousands of people die without leaving a valid Will. It may sound like a minor inconvenience, but in fact it can mean a lot of unnecessary stress, hard work and expense for those you leave behind. Writing a Will is relatively straight forward and our Suffolk Wills solicitors are here to guide you through the process.
Below are just a few reasons why it might be time to write yours;
It is your opportunity to decide who should get what, giving you and your loved ones peace of mind
Cohabiting couples do not automatically inherit as married couples or civil partners do
You can appoint a trusted individual to act as executor and look after your Estate
If you have children, you can appoint guardians to ensure that they are looked after in the event of your death
With some careful planning it may be possible to mitigate your inheritance tax bill
It is an opportunity to express any preferences you may have for your funeral. For example burial vs cremation
Our lawyers can offer advice regarding what to include in your Will, and how the document might best reflect your wishes.
Once your Will has been created you will be able to change it whenever your circumstances require it. For example, if you get married, divorced, or have children, you will probably want to reflect your altered circumstances in your Will.
We can also offer advice in cases of intestacy - where no Will has been left - and assist with Lasting Power of Attorney.
Our team is based in Suffolk and can assist clients in Colchester, Hadleigh, Clacton, Stowmarket, Braintree and Bury St Edmunds, as well as further afield.
