Our fixed fee will writing service includes practical legal advice, allowing you to make informed decisions on how to best structure your will and inheritance planning.
Wills are not an easy topic of conversation. Nobody enjoys talking about what will happen after they have gone. Often it seems easier to simply ignore the pressure and carry on with living. However, some thought and pre-planning will provide you and your beneficiaries with a level of certainty and peace of mind.
If you don’t have a will, the statutory rules of intestacy take effect and these lay down a strict order as to who will administer the estate and who will inherit it. In other words, you or your intended beneficiaries will not have a say in how your estate is handled. Your will not only sets out where your money, property and possessions go, it also allows you to appoint executors you trust to ensure your will is followed as you intended.
A will helps you tackle important decisions such as your first choice of guardians and your funeral instructions. Most importantly it will save your family, loved ones and beneficiaries a lot of stress and worry at a time they will be looking for certainty and order.

Drafting a will requires the consideration of a range of important details. In order to ensure that we cover the minimum amount of information necessary, we have prepared a will questionnaire for our clients to complete. This questionnaire is intended as a guide for our clients and if there are any parts of it that you wish to discuss further then you can leave that until we meet face to face. The most important information you can provide is your family details and a summary of your assets. A document containing guidance for completing the questionnaire can also be downloaded here.
