Our Plymouth probate solicitors always recommend that their clients write a Will. To many people it doesn't seem like an important task, but leaving a Will makes life much easier for your friends and relatives in the event of your death.
Here are just a few of the reasons we feel it is important to leave a Will;
If you do not, the government decides who will inherit any property or assets. Not ideal
Cohabiting couples do not automatically inherit in the way married couples or civil partners do
You can state who you wish to look after any children or dependents if you should die
With some careful planning it is possible to minimise your Inheritance Tax bill
The time following the death of a loved one is always hard. Our Plymouth probate solicitors know this so do whatever they can to alleviate the stress of the legal side of a death.
Our lawyers can;
Obtain the Will
Value the Estate
Collect the assets of the Estate
Settle any debts, provided there are sufficient funds available
Distribute assets as set out in the Will
We know that by its very definition, if you approach us to handle a probate case your life is probably in all sorts of turmoil.
This is why our lawyers will treat the matter with sensitivity and sympathy, while maintaining their usual efficiency. This will enable you to start getting you life back to normal again.
